Mobley m. M.H.Williams/TN/mid 1800's
Posted by: barbara craddock pike Date: January 29, 2001 at 11:21:06
  of 2268

Thanks to a "lookup angel".. I've found my grandmother's father, and his father and more info. Apparantly, Joseph S. Williams even
wrote a book, "Old Times in West Tennessee". He was born in NC, and when he died in 1878 in Lauderdale Co., he was an attorney.

According to Goodspeeds, his father Henry S. Williams, was the first settler in the southern section of Lauderdale Co., in the big
Hatchie Country. His mother was Martha Macon Seawell. Henry built the first ferry over the Hatchie River, owned a mill and a gin,
and for a while operated the Calmes Tavern in Covington, MS.

This is what I have:

Would LOVE to find anyone who knows anymore about these families. Joseph S. Williams is reported to have had 4 children, but
Virginia (Jennie) is all I have info on right now.

I have been told that M.H.Williams Mobley died 1867 & is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Memphis.
