I forgot to mention in the last message that Thomas Harvey Mobley was also a son of Isaiah Mobley. Thomas Harvey is my 2GG-grandfather. The record that I inherited indicates Thomas Harvey's birthdate as Apr 15, 1840, with birthplace as being in Monticello, (Lawrence County), Mississippi. Isaiah Mobley is listed only as being buried in Mississippi and his wife, Patsy Martha Longino Mobley's place of death as Lawrence County, Miss., (at this point I assume they are buried together). Thomas Harvey moved and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, (Grant Parish) Louisiana, (I have a picture of the tombstone that I took this year and can email a copy to you if you would like me to). In regards to Thomas Harvey's brother-Isaiah Hosea- The record indicates he may have been a twin to Martha(?) (the writing of some letters is unclear and I suspect misspellings). I have reason to suspect that Isaiah Hosea may have been born on Aug 08, 1845 in Lawrence County, Mississippi though I have not verified this. In reference to the brother listed only as "Bill", I recently obtained information from a Jimmy Mobley, (who lives in Florida, and may very well be my fourth cousin) that William Clark Mobley's, (in his family tree), dates are 1838-1923. Thus my "Bill" may be Jimmy's "William". In reference to the brother listed as "John Mobley" no other information is listed for this particular son. I have no idea where my "John Mobley" was born but if your "John" was born in 1837 in Tennessee and William Clark Mobley (my "Bill"?)in 1838 (place not known by me...yet)and I know that Thomas Harvey was born in 1840, in Mississippi, the three could well be brothers. I do not know where my "John" was born...yet. Incidently, my grandmother and great-aunt were Mormon and the records I have are forms from the Church of Latter Day Saints. One of the records, (those of only my grandmother) has the words "Archive Record" on it. Should I come across any information on my "John" in the future I will try my best to relay that info to you as I come across such. I do have some more questions about your "John" that I would like to save until later, until then, thank you for your response, Mitchell
