Thayer's Note:

a His full name is given in a letter from the USMA Library reproduced on a page of the Mobley Family site at RootsWeb. On the same page is also to be found a copy of Lt. Moberly's death certificate, where we learn that his death on that train was not, as might be surmised, due to a rail accident, but to a heart attack. NB: If that site disappears, I kept a download of those documents.
