Andrew Job Jr's sons, Elisha and Abraham married daughters of Elisha Gatchell Sr. and Rachel Wilcox who were married August 1706 in Pennsylvania. The Gatchell family was from England and were Quakers. Elisha Job married Abigail Gatchell May 3, 1731. Since Elisha Job died shortly after the marriage, there was no children of this union. Abraham Job married Sarah Gatchell Nov 24, 1736. There was 4 children by this union - Elisha, Mary, Rebecca and Hannah. Other than their daughter, Mary, this is a family that we know very little about. We know that Elisha Job did have several children and went to Virginia. Elisha Gatchell also had a daughter Ann Gatchell who married Timothy Kirk. The Kirk and Jobe families were closely-connected for years.
