"Enoch Jobe signs petition to "repeal" an act that exempts Quakers"
His brothers, Thomas and Zachariah and many Odells also signed this petition.
Text of Petition:
"THE PETITION of the inhabitants, citizens of the County of Shenandoah to the speakers and attenders of both houses of of the General Assembly of Virginia Respectfully sheweth That duly sensible of the great and manifold blessings which flow from a well regulated State of Society and strongly attached to the equal priviledges claimed by the People of this Commonwealth which priviledges are distinctly laid down and solemnly recognized by the Bill of Rights and whereas we conceive that these, our Rights, have been infringed by a law act of the General assembly granting to Quakers and Menonites an exemption from militia duty, a sense of which is painful to out feelings and evidently tends to destroy the harmony which should subsist in society and prevent what the law contemplates of there having a well regulated Militia, We, your petitioners, in respectful confidence do therefore most earnestly request that your body will take into consideration the allegations and inconveniencies?? touching?? the said Act and repeal so much thereof as may tend to lay unequal burthens on the people of this Commonwealth by their above recited exemption of Quakers and Menonites."
