NOTE: I have recently received an update of the above 1920 Coke County Census record from a descendant of John T. Sims.
*Edward J. Sims is actually Jesse Edward Sims.
*John T. Sims is Jesse's father.
*John Sims divorced his wife in 1918.
*John and Edward moved from Marcelena, Wilson County, Texas, after the death of Isom Mobley, to help John's sister, Pricilla, with farming.
*Gladys J. Sims is Jesse's wife.
*Gladys' maiden name was Hageman.
*Edward and Gladys had two children.
*Edward and Gladys divorced in 1933.
*Jesse Edward Sims remarried in Coke County, Texas, in 1933.

According to all of the above census records, Thomas Isham Mobley was born in South Carolina and Priscilla was born in Mississippi. All of the children were born in Texas. Maranda's mother was Priscilla, while all of the others were by Thomas' first wife who is listed as being born in South Carolina.

I have had some luck finding others who have information on the Mobleys. It appears that Thomas Issom Mobley was born 2 April 1853 and died 13 April 1913. He was the 4th child of Charles and Liza Ann (McClain) Mobley of Fairfield County, South Carolina. Thomas' first wife was Sarah Jane Mays, and his second wife was Percilla Sims, daughter of Jesse Simms. Percilla died 30 August 1939.

I obtained the following information from the death records at the Coke County, Texas Courthouse in Robert Lee, Texas.
