expand icon Historical Note

Annie L. Jobs was probably the wife of Thomas A. Jobs, secretary of the Flint, Idaho Mining Company in Flint, Idaho.  Thomas passed the Colorado Bar exam in 1880.  He and Annie lived in Flint between 1884 and 1887, but around 1890 they appear to have moved south to Arizona where Thomas worked as a lawyer and judge in Maricopa County. The Jobs’ daughter, Margaret C. Jobs was confirmed in Phoenix in April 1906.

Flint was a small mining town approximately nine miles south of Silver City in Owyhee County, and had a population of around fifteen hundred at its peak.  The Flint, Idaho Mining Company was formally registered in 1886.  Jobs served as secretary, and Robert Brewster Stanton worked as the engineer and general manager of the company.  Native Americans threatened the town and its inhabitants on several occasions, leading to the involvement of the United States Calvary, which quelled the disturbances.  Flint is now a ghost town, with only a few of its original buildings still standing.
