|Birth: ||1769, Germany|
|Death: ||Oct. 13, 1848|
Jacobina (Beck) Fell was born about 1769 in Germany. She married Jacob Foell about 1794 in Zurich, Switzerland. He was born about 1768 in Zurich, Switzerland and died before 1840 probably in Oley, Berks County, Pennsylvania. They emigrated from Wurttemberg, Germany, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, about 1807 and soon moved to Oley, Berks County, PA. Jacob's occupation was tanner. Two of their children were Christian Jacob Fell born in 1796 in Wurttemberg, Germany, who married Christianna "Annie" Kinsler, and David C. Fell born about 1813 in Pennsylvania.
It is likely that Jacob Fell is buried in Monument Cemetery near Jacobina, but no records have been found.
The Swiss surname FOELL was probably changed to FELL at immigration. German pronunciation of FOELL would be FELL and PA was predominately populated with German-speaking people at that time.
