Samuel S. "Red Devil" Jobe
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 22, 1841
Missouri, USA
Death: Dec. 30, 1933
California, USA

Pony Express rider. His route was from Julesburg, Colorado, north and west past Chimney Rock and Scott's Bluff in Nebraska and on past Fort Laramie to Horseshoe Station in eastern Wyoming. On one of his rides he got the nickname "Red Devil" after he encountered an Indian battle among Cheyenne and Sioux warriors. (During that encounter, he secured a Sioux Indian war bonnet, which he later gave to his friend, William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, for exhibition in his Wild West Show.) Samuel married Eliza E. Blackburn in Walla Walla, Washington, in August, 1883, and they lived in southwest San Luis Obispo County, California. Among their children was Nora, the first white child born in the Carrizo Plain area.
