I'm looking for info on Mobleys living in Graves and Hickman County KY during the period 1830-1870.

My gggfather, Claibourne Riggs Mobley, was married in Clinton, Hickman County, TN on 3 July 1850. His wife was Susan W.

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 interested in any info 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
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.

Appreciate any info anyone could share. Thanks, Scott Mobley
