-Samuel Jobe to Jacob Jobe
-Oct 25, 1786
-Witnesses: Uel Lamkin, Jonthan Mulkey, Nathan Jobe
Jacob Job(e) was a brother to my Samuel Job(e) and also to Nathan Job(e). He had married Deborah MacKay, a sister to Samuel's wife, Dorcas MacKay - both being daughters of Zachariah MacKay. It is now known for certain when Jacob moved to Tennessee but he did sign the petion in Decmeber 1787 to form the state of Tennessee.
- 1787, December - Petition to create the state of Tennessee. Among the signers:
- Jacob Job
- Nathan Job
- 1789, July 24 - Robert Lock Stubblefield deed 100 acres to Sarah Chase on German's Branch. Witnesses were Nicholas Hail and Jacob Job. It was proved by Jacob Job in 1791.
Now this Robert Loxley Stubblefield is quite interesting. He married Sarah Easley July 15, 1772 Halifax Co., Virginia. I know that he was the s/o George Stubblefield and Kezia Reed and grandson of Robert and Ann Stubblefield. Now Robert and Ann Stubblefield also had a son, William Stubblefield who married Elizabeth McDaniel.
North Carolina Land Grants in Tennessee, 1788-1791. pg.54 Sullivan Co. Tennessee. 1789. 1488. William STUBBLEFIELD 160 acres On the southside Holston River.
Anyway William never lived on this land and this could explain how Robert got the land. But what is more important to me is that William Stubblefield moved to Hawkins Co., TN and by 1809 had moved to Lawrence Co., AR and lived in the part that later became Randolph Co., AR and Oregon Co., MO. This is the same area that MY Jobe family ended up. Also William's descendants intermarried with my Jobe descendants and to think that at one time MY Samuel Job(e) and this William Stubblefield both had land grants in Sullivan Co., TN very near each other.
- 1796 - State of Tennessee was created

- William HULSE
William Pert Hulse was born 1750's Frederick Co., VA and had married Nellie Howard about 1778 Berkley Co., Virginia. He died 1840's in TN. May of his grandchildren and later descendants have intermarried with the descendants of Jacob and Nathan Job(e) many times over.
- Joseph BARRON
Joseph Barron Jr. was born Augsut 30, 1752 in Talbot, Maryland and he was the s/o Joseph Elias Barron Sr. and Ann Walker. Joseph Jr married Sarah Murray, the d/o Thomas Murray, abt 1773. Their son, Thomas Barron married Phebe Job(e), the d/o Jacob Job(e) and Deborah MacKay.
- George JACKSON
George Jackson was born about 1769 Virginia and died July 6, 1851 Washingotn Co., TN. His parents are uncertain. George married Elizabeth 'Betsey' Job(e)about 1793, the d/o Jacob Job(e) and Deborah MacKay.
- Loyd FORD
As you can see from the map, Loyd Ford's land was an original land grant from the state of North Carolina. He was from Baltimore Co. MD and was married to Mary Grant. Many of his descendants intermarried with both the descendants of Jacob and Nathan Job(e).
- Nicholas HALE
I haven't done a lot of research on Nicholas Hale but he was married to Mary Cox, the d/o James Cox and Mary Eva Mabry. Many of the descendants of Jacob and Nathan Job(e) intermarried with both the Hale and Cox families, many times over.
1800 - 1810
As you can see by 1810, the land that Samuel Job(e) had sold to his brother, Jacob Job(e) had now been divided into 3 portions.
- 75 acres now owned by William Jackson (purple)
William Jackson had married Hannah Jobe, d/o Jacob Job(e) and Deborah Mackay, about 1790-1791 probably in Sullivan Co., TN.
- 116 acres now owned by Samuel Jobe (blue)
Samuel Jobe, s/o Jacob Job(e) and Deborah MacKay, was born March 1, 1775 Shenandoah Co., Virginia. He had married Barbary Adwell, d/o John C. Adwell, about 1793-1794 probably in Sullivan Co.,TN.
- 230 acres now owned by the heirs of Jacob Job(e) (turquoise)
Jacob Job(e), brother to MY Samuel Job(e) had died sometime around 1801-1808. The land had continued to be in the possession of his widow, Deborah (MacKay) sho died about 1814.
1800, August 14 - Jacob Job deeded land in Sullivan Co, Tn to son, Samuel. The land was a tract of 290 acres on Kendrick's Creek and was given for love to Samuel

To the heirs of Jacob Jobe, James Jobe and George Jobe, late of the county of Sullivan, in the state of Tennessee and other persons concerned in the premises.
That I shall petition the county court of Sullivan, at a court to be held the third Monday in February next, at the court house in Blountville, to have partition made of the land that said Jacob Jobe, James Jobe and George Jobe, died seized of, in the county of Sullivan, lying on Hendrick’s [sic] creek, supposed to contain 230 acres, so that I can hold my share of said estate in severalty. All persons concerned, are hereby notified to attend said court, and oppose said petition if they think proper.
July 12, 1815.
We now know that Jacob, James and George Jobe were all three deceased by July 12, 1815. This now means that George's death date can now be narrowed down to between May 1, 1813 when he signed a petition and the date of this newspaper article. And we know that James was listed as a heir in 1808 but is deceased by the time of this article.

A Thomas Bragg had married Elizabeth MacKay (d/o Robert MacKay Sr. and Ann Brown) before 1753 in Augusta Co. Virginia. This Elizabeth MacKay was a sister to Zachariah MacKay, the father of Dorcas and Deobrah (MacKay) Job. This Elizabeth (MacKay) Bragg was also a sister to Margaret (MacKay) who had married Enoch Job Sr. and to Robert Makay Jr. who had married Patience Job(e). Therefore, all of these Braggs were also cousins to us Job(e) descendants who also have the MacKay/McKay lineage. Now in case anyone has forgotten, this Elizabeth MacKay had been previously marrried to none other than Abraham Job(e) - that's right the one who died 1750 in Augusta Co., Virginia, the brother to Caleb and Joshua Job(e). That's correct - Elizabeth (MacKay) Job(e), now Bragg, had several more children and they also lived at one time in the Sullivan - Washington Co., TN area.
