Mobley 07

 

Historical article re; Set Pratt & Maggie Mobley. In this article and numerous newspaper clippings and they say Seth was the rank of Colonel and led troops in Nebraska and Kansas. Seths Civil War records I have in my possession show that he was never promoted above the rank of Private. He did get as far as being Orderly to the Provost Marshall at Ft. Kearny, Nebraska 1864/65
