William MoberlyAge: 33 years17891822

Name
William Moberly
Given names
William
Surname
Moberly
Birth 1789
Note:
There is a strong possibility that this William Moberly is NOT the son of Samuel and Anna Tudor Moberly. When Samuel's will was probated in 1863, supposedly the son, William, was still living. If so, then our William could not be Samuel's son as both his and his wife's (Martha Robertson) death are well documented. It is far more likely he was the son of Edward and Nancy Roebuck Moberly, who started in South Carolina, went through Virginia and on into Madison Co, Kentucky.

Note: An 1880 biography of Thomas Moberly contains what we believe is a typo, noting William's DOD as 1832. However, all information clearly indicates the boys were orphaned young. It is possible that William was incapacitated, but most believe he died of a cholera epidemic in 1822.
