    PHEBE JOB/JOBE born in Virginia married THOMAS BARRON, SR October 31, 1794 in Washington Co., Tennessee. Phebe died August 17, 1858 and Thomas died January 24, 1863. Both are buried in the Bacon Family Cemetery on the Range Farm, Elmer Walker Rd., Washington Co., Tennessee. Every time I visit the cemetery I find something new and this time I noticed Phebe spelled as Phebe ; however, her daughter's name is spelled Phoebe. I am sure most personal names have at some time been spelled differently and will continue to plague the genealogist. Another example is it JOBE or JOB and I am sure all through the years family members have had this problem

    In the name of God Almighty I hereby make my last will and testament as life is uncertain and death is sure and yet being in sound mind I hereby want my Estate disposed of as follows: In the first place after my death I want my body neatly put away after the manner and customs of the Country. Secondly, my funeral expenses be paid out of my Estate. Thirdly, all my just debts be paid if there should be any. Fourthly, I want all of my heirs to have an equal share of my Estate after the expences is paid. Fifthly, I want my Property what is on hands sold at public sale to the highest bidder on time as the Court may deem proper, and the money equally divided among my heirs. I hereby give the names of them commencing at the oldest; and that is dead their children to have their parents portion--their names is as follows: Vizi LEAR Epperson and NANCY Epperson, DANIEL Barron, JACOB Barron,SARAH Bacon,DEBORAH Bacon, JOHN Barron, THOMAS Barron, LYDDIAN Bacon, and PHOEBE Cox, these is my heirs. I want them to have my Estate for the affection I have for them. I do hereby nominate and appoint Nathan Shipley my Executor to my last will and Testament to sell my property and wind up my Estate, and do further appoint the said Nathan Shipley my Lawful Attorney to tend to my business through life as I am old and inform and cannot see to it myself and to be valued in law as though I did it myself.
