The History of Nodaway Co., (1882) p. 936-937

I. S. Jobe, farmer, section 36, was born in White Co. Tennessee September 19, 1813, and in 1815, with his father, he came to Saline Co. Missouri, where his parents died two years after, leaving a large family of children in the wilderness, six miles from any settlement. The many struggles of these children for even a subsistence can never be told, yet they lived and have become valuable citizens and honored members of society. The family consisted of fifteen children: William, Mornan, Edy, Mary, Nancy, Elisha, Samuel, Ireby S., Pamelia and Malissa. Four died in infancy. After the death of their parents, the younger children found places in families until able to take care of themselves. Ireby walked to McDonaough Co. Illinois where he had an older brother living, and remained with him until April, 1832, when he enlisted in the Blackhawk War under Captain J.W. Stevenson. He remained through the war and was wounded twice in his hip and carries the balls to this day in his body. He also received a bad wound in his arm. He obtains a pension of six dollars per month from the government. After returning from the war he went to New Orleans where he remained with his uncle, Mathew Jobe and, in the spring of 1833 he went to Galena, Illinois, and engaged in mining, there continuing until 1835, when he went to Springfield, Illinois, where he married Miss Mary Chilton, February 18, 1835. They have six children living: William, Elizabeth, Caroline, Augusta, Thomas and Melinda.. They lost six: Caleb, Lucy, Martha Ann, Ireby, Nelson and Duke. Caleb was killed during the rebellion by a horse while in service. Mr. I.S. Jobe went to Stephenson Co. Illinois, in 1836, and pre-empted 160 acres of land, which he improved and where he remained twenty years. He then moved to Andrew County and bought a farm of 300 acres, paying therefore $4,550. By some fraudulent transaction he was sold out of his home and lost his farm and everything he possessed. In 1862 he came to Nodaway Co. and located eighty acres of land, making additions from time to time as he prospered, until he had one of the best and largest farms in the County, including 640 acres. After his family grew up he helped them, giving to each a farm and home, till now he owns but 110 acres. His children are located within a short distance of him, the sons being among the prosperous and influential farmers of the County. His daughters married farmers who are also settlers near, and are men of prominence and wealth. Thus Mr. Jobe, at the age of nearly three score years and ten, finds himself pleasantly situated, surrounded by a loving family. He is a Universalist, and in his political faith is a Jackson Democrat.
