When the Union scout troop of the 115th Ohio Calvary captured Jobe, they tried to make him tell the contents of the papers he was carrying, but he refused. As a result of his refusal to tell, the Union Army tied his hands and his neck with a leather strap to choke him. Refusing to give in, Jobe was beaten over the head, knocking out his front teeth, and dragged by the leather straps around his neck until he was strangled to death. Dewitt Jobe was buried in his family cemetery.

I know that you rest in the arms of Jesus, that justice will be done although not on this earth. My heart breaks knowing how you died, but I take comfort in knowing you are with God. Your sacrifice will be remembered, you are the bravest of the brave.
