There is a disagreement over the number of children. The census of 1900 said Bettie Jobe had 7 children, 6 of whom were living. There is little proof of a child named Ellen.
The death certificate of Hugh Jobe stated he was born July 4, 1839. May Jobe's bible said he was born 1840. However, the census reports and marriage certificate point to 1848. His daughter, Ophelia, gave the date on the death certificate. His gravestone says H. L. Jobe 1840-1925, and wife 1840-1906. The marriage certificate says Hue B. Jobe, under 21, signed by his father. His parents were married August 31, 1847, thus he was born 1848.

After an illness of only about 10 days the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Jobe, wife of H. L. Jobe, occurred Monday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock, caused by obstruction of the bowels. She took sick Sunday, the 19th, and almost from the first there seemed no hope of her recovery. Mrs. Jobe was born at Corinth, Mississippi, July 5, 1846. She was married to Mr. Jobe about 35 years ago and seven children, six of whom are living, were the result of the union, and all six of them were with her at death. She joined the Methodist church when 14 years of age and ever remained a consistent member. Mrs. Jobe was a good woman, a devoted mother and faithful companion and her many friends as well as relatives are deeply grieved at her death. The remains were laid to rest in Green Hill Cemetery Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends."
