Thomas Moberly Reaches the
Ripe Old Age of Eighty-Six
          In honor of his eighty-sixth birthday anniversary, a number of relatives and friends gathered at the home of  Thomas Moberly, 23 south Miller street, yesterday.  Among those who took part in eating the turkey and other good things were John W. Yarling, wife and son, Thomas;  Ed R. Moberly, wife and son, Wilbur;  Sim Farthing,  wife and daughter, Bertha;  Claude Cherry,  Elmer Webster,  Miss Mae Wright and the members of the family.
          Mr. Moberly was born in Madison county, Kentucky, January 20, 1821.  He was left an orphan at a very early age and came to Shelby county in the fall of 1828.  He has lived here continuously in Shelby county for seventy-nine years.  Mr. Moberly was married at the age of twenty-one years and settled in south Union township, where he lived for forty-six years, after which he moved to Shelbyville and has lived in his present home for nineteen years.  Mrs. Sadie Bone, who has been his housekeeper for a number of years, looked after the culinary affairs and the dinner was a splendid one.  The afternoon was spent in a social way and in talking of old times.  Mr. Moberly is the father of  John Moberly, the county commissioner;  James H. Moberly, the justice of peace;  Mrs. Simeon Farthing,  Ed R. Moberly and Mrs. Pherson, of Ohio.
