North Carolina, USA
|Death: ||Apr. 2, 1865, USA|
Jacob Waller enlisted in 46th Infantry Division, Company in March 1862. He was wounded multiple times. There are discrepancies in the manner of his death in official records. Some records indicate he was injured, and died in battle. His widow Margaret Casper Waller's s pension application details Jacob's cause of death as typhoid fever, which was common among Civil War soldiers. It further states that he was sent home in the weeks prior to his death, which is listed in all official correspondence as 2 April 1865. I have been unable to find his burial site. Jacob left behind a wife, Margaret Casper and six children, as well as a flourishing farm.
Parentage: No written confirmation for Jacob's parentage has surfaced.Some family trees list his parents as George Waller and Elizabeth Trexler, of Rowan County, North Carolina. A strong case can be argued that his parents were Michael Waller and Elizabeth "Betsie" Meismer, of Rowan County, North Carolina. Their confirmed son, Frederick, was an administrator of Jacob's will and obtained his farm. Eve A. Waller Earnhart was likely his sister. Along with Jacob's bride, Margaret Casper, Eve is listed in his home in the 1850 census record.
Children of Jacob Waller&Margret Casper include Adom P. (who often went by "Peter Waller", George Henry, Lundy J., Moses, John A., and William.
