I am interested in the origins of a town called Mobley in Randolph County. Can anyone help me out? Was it named for a person, and if so who?

Our William Moberly married Lucinda Chism in 1826. He was killed and she was said to move to Mo. Her sister Sarah married Rufus K. Combs and moved to Mo. and died in Randolph County. Seems like a lot of coincidence to me. William and Lucinda were married in Clark County which is the adjoining county to Madison. Sounds to me like we have some people in common. Also, they spelled their name Mobley as well as Moberly. Guess that depended on the spelling ability of whoever the clerk was. William and Lucinda had a son named Sidney as well as some more children. Thanks for any help.

Hi,
I can't find my notes right now, but I believe Moberly is named after a state senator from Missouri, possibly a William Moberly in the mid 1800's. There is a Squire Moberly and a William Moberly in the 1840 Randolph and Jackson Co census. Squire is also in the 1830 Howard Co Mo census along with my husband's line Ichabod Moberley. This family seems to come from the Madison Co KY area.

My grandfather, Lemuel Henry Mobley, born in 1876 in Radical, Missouri, (Stone County) often told me that Moberly, Missouri was named for his uncle.

My g grandfather's name was John Mobley. I have very little information about him, except for information entered in a family bible by my grandfather's older brother, William Adolphus Mobley. John's wife was Mary Eliza Philibert (Horn). Her first husband was Livus (Linus) Horn.

My g greatgrandfather John was born in Moberly, along with a brother named James according to the bible legend. They were the sons of Isaac Mobley who is buried in a cemetary in Moberly according to the bible legend. The legend also states that Isaac was from Scotland.

I have very little on William himself but his wife Lucinda was the daughter of James Chism. I understand William died young and Lucinda took her children, six I think and moved to Missouri. I have heard she was associated with the Mormon Church but could find nothing in their records.

Since I don't see a correct answer to the original question, here goes. Moberly, the largest town in Randolph Co, MO at about 13,000, is named for (Colonel) William Moberly who was president of the Railroad that was built where Moberly now stands in 1866. He never lived here and never had any children, although he and wife raised several. The closest he came to Moberly to live was Brunswick in Chariton Co, MO, some 25 miles away. Cecy Rice

Jim - my husband came from Kansas. His ancestors went directly from KY to KS. He has no relatives here.
One of my best friends when I was a kid (she was adult) was Wannie (Neawana) Rice Perkins. She had a brother, Jim Rice. They are both dead. I have done quite a bit of research on Rice families in Randolph Co, MO in the 1800s. If you need help there, I'd be glad to try. Cecy
