He was married on 9 Nov. 1836 in Sankt Martins Kirche, Zeutern, Amt Bruchsal, Baden to Theresia Zorn.
Jacob Schlichter and family arrived in Clark County from Zeutern in 1839 and purchased a farm.
The adjoining farm was owned by someone from Zeutern as well and was purchased in 1839 at the same time Jacob made his purchase. The owner of that farm was Lorenz Schlichter, who later resided in Coffey, Kansas. Lorenz had his sister Catherine Barbara Schlichter, and their parents Lorenz Schlichter and Katherine (Mergel) Schlichter residing with him as well.
The records that would allow establishment of a relationship between Jacob and the Lorenz family group have not survived, but the closest that Jacob would be to Lorenz jr, and his sister would be second cousins: I believe them to be that but with no positive proof possible.
Jacob was one of twelve children, having one brother and ten sisters. He was the only one of his siblings who came to the US. One of his sisters died in the birth of her seventh child and her husband later married his late wife's sister and had ten more children. Eight of those seventeen children came to the US starting with Sebastian Hubbuch.
The Daily Evening News, Jeffersonville, Indiana, 24 May 1887, p. 4, col. 1 (sub City News In General): "J. W. Ross, administrator of the estate of the late Jacob Schlichter, filed an inventory yesterday, which shows an aggregate value of $17,000, most of which is located in Bethlehem Township."
