Job Sosebee, a Revolutionary War soldier, was a Scout in the Continental Army. He was at the capture of the famous Tory,'Bloody Bill Cunningham.' Married to Elizabeth Tankersley, he received land grants in Spartanburg, S.C. and raised seven sons and three daughters on his plantation in Spartanburg.

The Sosebee family was making preparations to relocate to Habersham County, Georgia, when Job died in 1821. He is said to have been buried on the plantation site. There is a lone grave near the Pacolet River, on his plantation site, that has long been thought was an Indian grave. One has to wonder if it is actually the resting place of Job. This is only speculation and cannot be proven.

The Sosebee family, minus son James, continued the move by wagon train, built their homes in north Georgia and now have spread across the United States.
