From "The Valentines in America, The Maryland Valentines," information from Milton C. Valentine, son of Jacob Valentine and Rebecca Picking, written March 18, 1874:

"It may not be out of place, however, to state briefly a few things in reference to that branch in which I myself stand. My father, JACOB VALENTINE, the fifth child of Jacob and Mary (Freese) Valentine, had a family of nine childre, six sons and three daughters, all of whom lived to adult age, and all but two of whom still live. The six sons, in the order of their ages, are Levi, Josiah, Ezra, William, Milton, Thomas. Thomas was married, and died in Baltimore, in 1853. He left no children. Levi Valentine resides in Baltimore, and is connected with the Government Office of Steamboat Inspection. Ezra Valentine also resides in Baltimore, carrying on the business of millwrighting. Josiah Valentine is a farmer in Frederick County, Maryland. William Valentine also resides in Frederick County. Of the three daughters of my father, in the order of their ages, Ann Rebecca, Mary Ellen, and Lydia Valentine, the last died in 1863. The other two, married, as was also Lydia, are living, the one in Frederick County, and the other in Carroll County, Maryland."
