My Gggrandfather Benjamin Holland Jacobs and wife Mary Crayne came to Crittenden Co. from VA about 1838. The eighth of their 11 children, Mack Green Jacobs, marr. Nancy Malvina Freeman who died following the birth of their only child and my grandfather Hayes Jacobs, February 19, 1877.
Hayes was raised by his Uncle, Henry Thomas (Uncle Tom)Jacobs and wife Mary Ann(Molly) Crayne. Yes, Molly was possibly Tom's first cousin. Tom and Molly had two daughters who lived to adulthood, Myrtle born in 1881 and Arnella in 1885. Mack remarried to Mary E. Lloyd in 1886, they had three sons Everet Preston 1888, William Homer 1890 and Glee L. 1894.
All of these folks lived around Crayneville until the great migration of the early 1900's. By 1910 most of the Jacobs', along with many others, were gone from Crittenden Co. My grandfather at age 26 and in company with his half brother Everet, came to Toppenish, Washington arriving in 1903.
In 1904 Hayes returned to KY for a time and married, in Paducah, on March 4, 1907 Maude Joanna Tucker. Returned to Toppenish, July of 1907. Their first child, Ruby Wynema, born on Oct. 28, 1908. Two more girls, born in Toppenish, Mary Juanita 12/11/1909 and Edna May (my mother) 5/1/1911.
In 1913, the whole family returned to KY, and Pop is running a little store near their home in Tyler, a little village, near Paducah. Living nearby are "Uncle Press and Aunt Bertie", and their two daughters, Jeanette and Doris. In reality Uncle Press was Pop's cousin, Presley Hughey Jacobs, youngest son of William Albon Jacobs, Benjamin Holland's first born son. Aunt Bertie was Bertie Sears.
The family stayed in Tyler for three yrs. adding another daughter, Dortha Phene 12/07/1913. According to my mother, the kids had some terrifying times, hiding their oldest sister Ruby from the Gypsies down the road, who of course would steal a long haired girl, everyone knew that.
They returned to Toppenish for good in 1916, and another child, Hayes Benjamin Jacobs, was added on 12/08/1919.
