Background Information

Eli B. Jobe made his will in 1854 and it was signed on 7 March 1854 and witnessed by (J.) R. Woodside and S. H. McCulloh. It was filed and recorded in Oregon Co., Missouri in November 1865. Of his 9 children, 7 were mentioned in his will. The two that weren't were Jesse and Elijah Jobe. However, Jesse was deceased at time of probate in 1865 and Jesse's son, Caleb Jobe (my great grandfather) was mentioned in his will. I also have guardianship papers that show where Elijah Jobe was made guardian of Caleb Jobe, son of Jesse Jobe. Also my Caleb Jobe, migrated to Texas with Elijah Jobe and his wife, Mary (Parrack). My grandmother, Minnie Leamer (Mears) Jobe had letters from Sarah and Elisha Jobe (children of Elijah Jobe) in her possession in the late 1960's.

Elijah and Jesse Jobe are residing together in l850. Jesse had just married and Elijah was unmarried. They are on the 65th district of Oregon Co.,Missouri. #150--next door to Eli B. Jobe who is #151.

Heritage Book of Oregon Co

"Jobe Township named for William Samuel Jobe who, before 1840, joined his brother, Eli Jobe, who had come before 1830 with his wife, Prudence, and five year old son, Jacob."

The History of Ripley Co.,, Missouri
by Jerry Ponder page 19

Lemuel Kittrell is generally considered the first settler in Ripley Co.,, coming here in 1818. Doctor John Hume, in a paper dated March 15,1927 states that Ceise Reily or Reilly was here in 1802 and that by 1804, a Mr. Cunningham had established a trading post at Buck Skull, present day Current view. In addition Doctor Hume's writing, Isaac E. Kelly had settled on Current River at the mouth of Kelly Hollow just a mile into what is present day Carter Co., as early as 1808. Also, Samuel Russell, Joseph Atkinson, Elisha Dow, William Furueson, William Fowler, Jacob Garrett, Joseph Hardin, William Drope, and Polly Wilson were at Kelly Hollow, probably only temporarily, by 1811.

Wayne Co.,, Missouri by Rose Cramer page 84

The Daltons were in Randolph Co.,, Arkansas, and Oregon Co., Missouri, and possibly, into Ripley Country very early.

Eli Jobe was in Oregon Co., probably before Lemuel Kittrell was in Ripley Co. As has already been mentioned, Arkansas just below Ripley Co., had considerable population by 1825. Land offices were far away and it is possible that some early settlers did not file until later."
