Virginia, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 1915

From reading his letters to his brother written from 1894 until 1915, we know he had an entrepreneurial spirit. He left Virginia in 1894 and moved to Missouri. He worked in the led mines and as a carpenter until he moved to Hobart, Oklahoma in August 1901 in the first days after the land lottery and would have been a major part of the building of that town. Eva Keithley joined him there in January 1902 and their first two children were born in Hobart. In 1905, they moved to the Capitol Hill area of Oklahoma City where they had five more children. Jacob died way too early from typhoid fever. His headstone is no longer visible but family members who remembered stated his burial site is on the west side of the cemetery close to the fence. His sons, Willie and George are also buried at Fairlawn.
