Hi Bettye. My gggfather, Claibourne Riggs Mobley, was married in Clinton, Hickman County, TN on 3 July 1850. His wife was Susan W. Nichol.
The 1850 U.S. Census shows Claibourne and Susan still in Clinton on 26 August 1850. He was 24 at the time and she was 19. Later they moved to Hillsborough County, FL. They had 8 children, one of whom was Hazel Scott, my ggfather.
I don't know anything about Claibourne's parents and I'd be intrested in any info you have that may shed some light on who they were.
I've noted the names "Riggs and "Claibourne" and "Hazel" associated with the family of Richard Moberly or Mobley who lived in nearby Graves County around this time, but haven't yet been able make a connection. I know that at least one of Richard's children, E.T. Mobley, lived in Hickman County after she grew up and married. Her husband's name was W.E. Kimble. Richard's wife Mary (Polly) nee Riggs died in the Kimble house in Hickman County on 20 July 1874.
I can provide you with a lot of info on the descendents of Claibourne Riggs, if you're interested. Just let me know.
There's a great web site for Mobley researchers at http://www.genealogy.org/~mobley/
I hope this info is useful to you and, again, if you have any info to share on the family of Claibourne Riggs, I'd be appreciative.
