Birth: 1785
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: unknown
Kentucky, USA

Jacob was the son of Henry Sprenkle. He was born between 1780-1790, probably in York Co., PA but possibly in VA. He disappears from records after 1841.

Jacob married at least three times: (1) Mary ("Polly") Sheltman, 25 Jan 1804, Rockingham Co., VA; (2) Susan Mullins (or Sallers); & (3) Elizabeth Dehart, 22 May 1841, Carter Co., KY.

Jacob & Polly had at least 9 children: Lucinda (Green); Napoleon Bonaparte; Elijah; Malinda (Fugate); Augustus; Ira Goff; Franklin A.; John M.; & Hurley Smith.

Jacob & Susan appear to have had about 11 children: a daughter and son are unknown; John French Marquis de LaFayette; Catherine (Enis); Samuel Jefferson; Henry Clay; Commodore Elisha; Martha Ann (Hull); Julia (Kitchen); Mary Ann (Clark); & Alexander Campbell.

Jacob was tried for manufacturing counterfeit silver coins in 1841. He was acquitted. The story is told that after he heard the verdict, he turned to his attorney and paid him with some of the silver coins. Sprinkle researchers affectionately refer to Jacob as the "Silver Dollar Man."
