John Jacob Fahs
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 2, 1809
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 13, 1871
York County
Pennsylvania, USA

John Jacob Fahs was the third of eight known children of Philippus (did he go by Philip?) Fahs (1777-1845) and Anna Maria (went by Mary) Rothrock Fahs (1780-p1850) on 04 Dec 1803 at York, York County, Pennsylvania. In 1850 the widow Mary was living with her son Philip Henry Fahs at Dover Township, York County, Pennsylvania. It is assumed that Mary died between 1850 and 1860 in presumably Pennsylvania.

John married Mary Jane Huff (1809-1884) in c1830 at presumably York County, Pennsylvania. John and Mary were the parents of eight known children, all daughters, namely:

1. Louisa Ann Fahs Rockey (1832-1874)
2. Mary Jane fahs Tawser (1837-1871)
3. Annie Elizabeth Fahs Neater (1839-1904)
4. Rebecca Fahs Harting (1840-p1900)
5. Susan Fahs Adams (1843-1922)
6. Emma E. Fahs Miller (1845-1922)
7. Amanda Fahs Wilhelm (1847-1922)
8. Martha E. Fahs Taylor (c1850-1905)

Did the three daughters, Susan, Emma and Amanda really all die in 1922? It seems like an unlikely coincidence.

Links to John's parents, wife and one of his eight known children are included below.
