Some history behind all this :
Yes , Walter Scofield( or Schofield) in theShip Derby is the same one that married Mary Mathilda Mobley. Mary Mathilda was Samuel and Eleonor´s daughter
Walter was a Confederate soldier and among 5.000 people from the South he came to Brazil.
The Scofields and the Mobley settled at Bahia. And some of Walter´s childern moved later on to Minas Gerais ( another state) .
Walter and Mary have a lot of children and after 140 years the Mobleys/Scofield in Brazil , must be over 1.000 people.
