Yes, this is my line. I have John Mosby (son of Samuel Mosby and Jean Robards) married Nancy Smith (daughter of John Smith and Mary Puckett). Their children:
Robert James, Sameul Luke, Elizabeth Jean Robards, Kittie B., Martha Ann J., William John, Sarah Camilla, and Mary Augusta.

Robert James b. 11/4/1819 d. 2/29/1876 married in 1848 Laura Emma Adams b. 1831 d. 6/16/1870 (Laura was the daughter of Elbridge Gerry Adams, son of John Adams and Lois Newcomb, and Elizabeth Shumate, daughter of Mason D. Shumate and Nancy Gatewood). Their children: Robert, John Elbridge, Mary Augusta, Georgia Elizabeth, Charles, Ella, Nancy Lou, William, Laura Emma, and Edward M..

Mary Augusta Mosby b. 2/12/1852 d. 1/10/1938 married 1873 Edward Phillips b. 6/6/1849 d. 1/6/1928 (son of Samuel Phillips, son of Phillip Phillips and Maria Shannon, and Rosalie Abaline Brute, daughter of ? Brute and Matilda Bustamente). One child: Matilda Georgia Phillips.

Now, Edward Phillips sister Matilda married Charles Knox and had a daughter Esther who married Robert and Laura's son Charles. He had another sister named Marie.

Matilda Georgia Phillips b. 11/1/1874 d. 9/25/1945 married 10/4/1899 to Harry Rhodes Palmer b. 4/23/1872 d. 5/9/1933 (descended from Walter Palmer. All of his heritage can be found in the database on the Walter Palmer Society web site.) One child: Florence Millington Palmer b. 8/10/1900 d. 5/30 1956 married 11/15/1918 to Charles (Carl) Wayne Dietz b. 12/13/1900 d. 5/7/1962. They divorced in 11/1938 and both remarried, Florence to Jack Sinclaire.

Florence and Charles were my grandparents and most of my information comes from papers my grandfather kept passed down from Mary Augusta, as well as his personal journal.

What I don't have are the names of John Mosby's siblings. I have names of spouses for most of the rest as well as their children and some dates.
