Nice work! We had seen the name of Samuel Jobe listed as a Pony Express
rider when we visited the museum two years ago and wondered where he placed
in the Jobe Family. At that time the Pony Express Museum had no information
about the riders. It's nice to find that there indeed are books that do
have that information. I know that I will order one.
Thanks for the info..
