Birth: Nov. 27, 1756
Lebanon County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1826
Botetourt County
Virginia, USA

Jacob was born November 27, 1756, and was baptized December 4, 1765 at the Bethel Moravian Church in Lickdale, Pa. He met and married Susanna (Buckwalter) Lane who had 4 children by her first marriage. Shortly after marrying they settled in Berkeley Co., Va (now West Virginia) on a 68 acre farm. In 1792 they moved to Rockingham Co., VA and sold the first farm. On April 22, 1792 they purchased 164 acres on Looney Creek, a branch of the James River 5 miles from Fincastle, Virgina, in Botatourt County. They died at the farm and were laid to rest there; the stones have weathered and are unreadable. Upon Jacob's death, the farm was sold for $12,000 to his oldest son, Joseph, on May 30, 1828, which he then held until 1836 when he moved to Montgomery Co., Ohio.

Jacob and Susanna had seven children:
Joseph, Jacob, Elizabeth, John, Magdalena, Samuel and Anna
