    "Notice." Western Pilot, Rogersville, Tennessee 19 Aug 1815: Vol. 1, # 41. Published by John B. Hood. Tennessee Newspapers on microfilm at ETSU Sherrod Library, Johnson City, Tennessee.

    Notice,
    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.

    Take notice,
    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.

    Samuel Jobe
    July 12, 1815.

    IMPORTANCE

    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.
