John and Elizabeth (Ruggle) Job


In the first half of the year 1749 Benning Wentworth, the colonial governor of New Hampshire from 1741 to 1766, issues the first of the New Hampshire Grants, leading to the establishment of Vermont. Also, King George II of Great Britain grants the Ohio Company a charter of land around the forks of the Ohio River. The Ohio Company of Virginia, was a land speculation company organized for the settlement by Virginians of the Ohio Country (approximately the present state of Ohio) and to trade with the Native Americans. The Company had a land grant from Britain and a treaty with Indians, but France also claimed the area, and the conflict eventually helped provoke the outbreak of the French and Indian War.
John Job, Sr. was born about 1749 probably in Shenandoah County, Virginia. John married Elizabeth Ruggle (1745-1815) in 1770. John settled on Big Almance Creek in Eastern Rowan County, the part which later became Guilford County.2 Early on the eastern part of Guilford County was settled by Germans, both Reformed and Lutheran. But, there was no sharp delineation of this line and mixture and additional settlement erased this distinction.
The American Revolutionary War began in 1775. It was the rebellion of thirteen of the North American colonies of Great Britain who formed the United States of America and declared themselves independent in 1776. A vote in Parliament in 1782 to end hostilities was passed by a majority of just nineteen votes. Limited fighting continued throughout 1782, while peace negotiations were conducted. In 1783, the Treaty of Paris was signed ending the war and recognizing the independence of the United States of America.
In April of 1777 John Job was inducted into the Revolutionary Army, but being a Quaker, he refused to fight and was released the same month. The Battle of Alamance was fought near his farm. About one hundred on each side were wounded and killed. The prisoners were taken to Hillsboro where they were given a military trial and six were publically hanged. All the men subject to military duty were called to Hillsboro before the Judge and Court and were administered an oath to support the crown. John refused to sign an oath.
In the 1790 US Federal Census for Guilford, North Carolina, there is a record of the John Jobb family. The Census indicates that in this household there were five free white, male persons under the age of sixteen; there were four free white, male persons over the age of sixteen; there were four free white, females; for a total of thirteen people in this household. There were no slaves in the household.
The birthdates for John Job and Elizabeth Ruggle are generally given as 1749 and 1745 respectively. If these dates were accurate and Elizabeth had her first child at about the age of sixteen and each of the other eleven members of this household are the children of John and Elizabeth born at an interval about one per year, then this census record fits well. This could have been William Walter Job, Samuel Job, Moses Job, Aaron Job and another son under 16 years of age; John Job, James Job, John Job Jr, and Thomas Job over sixteen years of age; and Elizabeth Job and three daughters.
The 1800 United States Federal Census for Salisbury, Guilford, North Carolina, has a record of the John Jobe family. In the household is John, his wife, six other males over the age of ten years, two females over the age of ten, three slaves, for a total of thirteen members.
In 1790 there were ten free men in the family. In 1800 there were seven and John is fifty-one years of age. But, the farm is still doing well and there's more work than they could do so John appears to have bought three slaves. The members of this family could have been Aaron (1 males between 10-16); William Walter, Samuel, Moses (3 males between 16 and 26); Thomas and John Jr (2 males between 26-45); John (himself) (1 male over 45); an unknown female between 10-16; an female between 16-26; and Elizabeth (1 female over 45).
In 1802 John Jobe, Sr transferred land to his sons Aaron and Samuel Jobe.

Aaron Jobe

Aaron Jobe was born in 1785 in Guilford County, North Carolina, the only child of John and Elizabeth. He married Masdrey Bradley on June 29, 1812, in Williamson, Tennessee. They had one child during their marriage. Aaron Job married Masdrey Bradley on June 29, 1812, in Williamson County, Tennessee.(Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002) In 1850, Aaron Job was 65 years old and lived in Marshall County, Alabama. (1850 United States Federal Census) He died in 1850 in Marshall County, Alabama, at the age of 65.
In 1814 John Job died. There is a record on the Find A Grave website for John Job indicating there he was buried in the Alamance Presbyterian Church Cemetery. This Find A Grave record indicates he was born in 1749 in Virginia and died February 1814 in Guilford County, North Carolina, USA. He was buried in Alamance Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina, USA.
The marriage certificate for Julia Ann Baugh and Aaron Jobe was located in Collin county. They married in 1867.

1900 US Federal Census for Jack County, Texas

1900 US Federal Census for Texas > Jack > Justice Precinct 7 > District 41 > page 15. // Martha (born 1875 in Texas) is found here with her husband Joseph (Julia's son) (born 1870 in Texas) and living in the same household is listed Julia Bowers "M-in Law"; a white female; born April 1841; age 59; widowed; having had seven children with one surviving. Julia says she and her parents were born in Georgia. She lists her occupation as "landlord." // But, Martha's parents were born in Kansas and Missouri. Joseph's parents were born in Georgia. Therefore, even though the names don't match, Julia Bowers must be Martha's mother-in-law and Joseph's mother. Perhaps Julia was widowed and remarried after Joseph was born or reverted to her maiden name. Is her maiden name Baugh, Bower, or something else? Baugh and Bower sound almost the same when spoken with a Texas accent. She had three children living with her in 1870 whose last name was Baugh. Was she first married to a man named Baugh and then later to a man named Jobe?
