Orin Mobley b.NC 1817 > Bedford TN 1850

  of 2268

I am trying to identify the parents of the O.[Orin] A. Mobley who is enumerated on the 1850 Bedford County TN Census -- page 127,
Household 94 of:

Reuben Curry 39 M Farmer VA
Frances [Mobley?] 37 F NC (b. circa 1813)
Sarah J. 10 F TN
Susan 7 F TN
Mary F. 5 TN
James H. 3 TN
O. [Orin] A. Mobley 33 Wagon Maker NC (b. circa 1817)
James Cooper(?) 28 Laborer TN

NOTE: Orin Mobley seems to have lived with Reuben for 30 or so years (1850-1880) both in Bedford TN and later in Caldwell KY. One would think that he had to have been a relatively close family member, or his welcome surely would have worn out over that course of time. In fact, Orin only stops living with Reuben Curry after Reuben's first wife Frances dies, and Reuben remarries.

Living next door to Reuben Curry in Household 95 was:
Sarah [Mobley?]Nichols 30 F NC (b. circa 1820)
Martha J. 11 F TN
James 10 M TN
Sarah E. 6 F TN
Pleasant 3 M TN
William 2 or 3 months (illegible) M TN

I believe that Frances, the wife of Reuben Curry, is possibly Orins's sister, as is the Sarah Nichols who is enumerated in the household next to Reuben.

Although it may have been earlier, it appears that this particular Mobley family would have been in Benford County sometime prior to 1840.

Thanks for any comments.
