Since my last post, I have dug further back into the Jobes tree and this is what I have found to date:
Samuel Jobes' father was Thomas Jobes who worked as a Cooper and died in Flemington, NJ on September 14, 1796 according to:
[Massachusetts Magazine, No. X October, 1796, Vol. VIII p.575 (Monthly Chronologer section)]
PHILADELPHIA, SEPT. 23.
On the 14th inst. [instant - this month] there was a violent storm, with thunder, lightning and hail, near Flemington, New-Jersey.Many of the hail stones measured from 6 to 7 inches round, which indented the shingles and boards of the houses and fences, and destroyed a quantity of grain, etc. in the ground.
About a half mile away from the town on the hill, at the cooper's shop, Thomas Jobs and his wife were killed on the spot.The child which she had in her arms was a little burnt, but is expected to recover.A woman lying in bed, had her hair singed, and was otherwise hurt; and a little boy was much hurt in the same house, and it is feared he will not recover the use of his limbs.The chimnies at both ends of the house are bursted, and the building was left a mere wreck.
The above Thomas Jobs, and his wife having company, gave up their bed to their guests and lay upon the floor, with their heads towards the chimney stack, when the accident happened -- Those who were not injured, lay on a bedstead.This terrifying tempest lasted from the early part of the afternoon, with little intermission, until 11 or 12 o'clock at night.
The child that was a "little burnt" was Samuel who was then taken in by his grandparents (Yawgers) and moved to the Western NY area.

We are a bit stuck at this point and would love to have any help available.We are guessing that Thomas Jobes was born in the 1770s and may have named his son Samuel after his father or uncle who may have been a revolutionary war patriot.
Any help would be appreciated.
