Biography

William Wesley Jobe - Civil War
Narrated by Stan Jobe

My great grand father W. W. Jobe was captured at Jumpersville along with others. He was not in uniform and was placed on a Union boat to be taken to Ohio and placed in prison. The officer who arrested him held a pistol to his head and told him that if he had any idea that he was W. W. Jobe, he would blow his head off instead of being placed in prison. That night W. W. jumped over board and swam the river ( I believe that it was the Tennessee River) and returned to Jobetown. W. W. Jobe was not uniformed - I guess that he was very similar to an undercover agent. He was also kinda of like Robin Hood - he would rob from the rich(Union soldiers) and give the weapons to the Confederates and distribute the food and other stuff to civilians who were in need. The Union forces would steal the live stock and pantry foods from civilians leaving them with nothing. My Dad said that there was a special clump of woods on the old John F. Jobe place where W. W. Jobe would hide cattle, hogs and chicken so that the Union soldiers would not steal them.
