	vi.	SIMEON ALEXANDER HILL, b. January 07, 1829.
	vii.	WILLIAM E.M. HILL, b. Abt. 1831.

5.  BIGGERS7 MOBLEY (CULLEN6, ALEXANDER5, HAMMOND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 MOBBERLYI) was born Abt. 1799 in Fairfield Co., S.C., and died Abt. 1861 in Fairfield Co., S.C..  He married FRANCES DAVIS Abt. 1833 in Fairfield Co., S.C., daughter of CALEB DAVIS and UNKNOWN.

Notes for FRANCES DAVIS:
In the book,"Fairfield Co., Marriages Implied in Probate Records", p 82,
 under:  Mobley, Biggers.........Frances Davis
                                              (daughter of Caleb Davis)
                                    Apt 2,   File 412,    Frames 232,233,240,  lived 1852

This is verification that Frances is indeed the daughter of Caleb Davis.

In the 1880 Census, Frances Mobley is listed as being 70 years old. (widow)
With her were living:  Tohmpson , W - F - age 32  dtr (spelling as per Census)
                                           Elizabeth,     W- F- age 30   dtr

I am not positive that this Frances Mobley is the widow of Biggers Mobley, but it seems probable.  The two daughters living with her could be Drucilla L.T.  and Elizabeth (Lizzie).  Drucilla signed her name L.T.D. Dye on some papers, and Elizabeth signed her name Lizzie.   The "T" could be "Tohmpson" or more likely Thomasina,
given the way census takers wrote things down.    Could it be:  Louisa Thomasina Drucilla Mobley?  Both Aunt Dru and Aunt Pet married late in life, perhaps after their mother died.  My mother Maude M. Dickerson Brannon knew Aunt Pet very well, and
said that she married "ole Tom Dye" very late in her life. 


	
Children of BIGGERS MOBLEY and FRANCES DAVIS are:
	i.	IRENEA HARRIET8 MOBLEY, b. Abt. 1835, Fairfield Co., S.C.; d. Fairfield Co., S.C.; m. JETHRO HILL, Fairfield Co., S.C..
	ii.	DULCENEA MOBLEY, b. May 06, 1839, Fairfield Co., SC; d. September 23, 1925, Fairfield Co., SC; m. WILLIAM KERR, August 31, 1858, Fairfield Co., S.C..

Notes for DULCENEA MOBLEY:
Dulcinea (Dulcina on tombstone).  Her burial place is in the historic Cool Branch Baptist Church Cemetery, which is located in the N.W. Corner of Fairfield Co., SC.   

Her two sisters, both of whom married Dyes,  are also buried there.
Drucy (Drucilla) and Lizzie (Louise Elizabeth) have a double headstone.  There is no date given for the death of Lizzie, so it is assumed that she died a few years after Drucy.

My mother, Maude Dickerson Brannon remembers Drucy being called "Aunt Dru".  Her sister Lizzie was called "Aunt Pet".  I believe mama said Aunt Pet married a Thomas Dye.  She was quite old even then, and outlived Tom Dye, who, mama said, married Aunt Pet to get her land when she died.   HaHa. 

Those Dickersons and Mobleys  (Moberly)  were a long-lived people.

Mama is now age 95, (1997) being born in 1902 in Fairfield Co.,  Shelton area.

	iv.	BETHENIA DORCAS MOBLEY, b. Abt. 1841; m. WOODWARD.
6.	v.	ISABEL ARMENIA MOBLEY, b. January 18, 1842, Fairfield Co., S.C.; d. March 09, 1924, Fairfield Co., S.C..
	vi.	DRUCILLA L.T. (AUNT DRU) MOBLEY, b. July 06, 1844, Fairfield Co., SC; d. October 11, 1916, Faifield Co., SC; m. EDWARD DYE??, Aft. 1880, Faifield Co., SC.

Notes for DRUCILLA L.T. (AUNT DRU) MOBLEY:
Drucilla Mobley married  ( I believe) Edward Dye who died  before 1889. Her sister, Elizabeth, (Lizzie)  married Thomas Dye when they were both quite old, and both husbands died before the women.  After the death of the husbands the sisters lived together.

My mother remembers "Aunt Dru" and "Aunt Pet", and said that ole  Tom Dye married Aunt  Pet,  hoping to get her land, but she outlived him.

I remember going,with my brother Forest, and cousin Dellie Boulware, down to see "Aunt Pet" when we were children.  She was real old then. (In the early 30's)

In the Cool Branch Baptist Church Cemetery in the N.W. corner of Fairfield Co., the sisters are buried side by side, beneath a single headstone, with the name "Dye" centered over their names.  There is a birth and death date for Drucilla, but only a birth date for Elizabeth (Lizzie).  (We figure she was "raptured".) 

Both sisters signed  a note dated November 9, 1889.  The signatures (actually "X"'s)
were  " L.T.D.Dye, and L.E. Mobley" .   Thomas E. Dye was a witness, and he later married  L.E. (Elizabeth, Lizzie, "Aunt Pet"). 

	vii.	ELIZABETH LOUISE (AUNT PET) MOBLEY, b. July 29, 1846, Fairfield Co., S.C.; d. Abt. 1932, Fairfield Co., S.C.; m. THOMAS E. DYE, 1890-1895, Faifield Co., SC.

Generation No. 3

6.  ISABEL ARMENIA8 MOBLEY (BIGGERS7, CULLEN6, ALEXANDER5, HAMMOND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 MOBBERLYI) was born January 18, 1842 in Fairfield Co., S.C.1, and died March 09, 1924 in Fairfield Co., S.C.2.  She married MARION ALEXANDER (MEL) DICKERSON Abt. 1866 in Shelton, Fairfield Co., S.C., son of BENJAMIN DICKERSON and MILLIE LYLES.

Notes for MARION ALEXANDER (MEL) DICKERSON:
Mel (Marion A.) Dickerson was born near Shelton in the northwest section of Fairfield Co., S.C., and at the age of 26 he joined the CSA forces on December 14, 1961, along with brothers John and Hiram. They served in the 17th Inf., Co. B under Capt. Burley.

Marion was wounded slightly at the 2nd Battle of Manassas, and captured at Five Forks on April 01, 1865. He was released June 26, 1865.  On his Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. Government he is dscribed as:  light complexion, brown hair, hazel eyes, 6' l 1/2".

Both Mel (as Marion was known to his family) and wife Isabel Mobley (Armenia Isabella) are buried at Cool Branch Baptist Church in the N.W. corner of Fairfield Co., S.C., on Route 215-S. His headstone has no dates, only the CSA Star. 

  My mother, Maude Malinda Dickerson Brannon tells me that Cool Branch is a Dickerson church, founded by that family. The one standing today is the second; the first was located a mile or so to the north, down a road to the left.  It is there that Benjamin and Millie are probably buried. We have not found the cemetery as yet. The land on which the first church stood was donated by James F.V. Legg who was the second husband of Malinda Dickerson McConnell.  The land evidently had been owned by Andrew McConnell, and after his death went to his widow Malinda, but was J.F.V. Legg's after his marriage to her.     Aunt Malinda outlived him, however, and mother remembers going up to her big old house, and in it was a "blue room".
