Birth: Jun. 11, 1833
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: Feb. 24, 1910
Leavenworth County
Kansas, USA

Jacob was born in Gniebel, Tuebingen, Wurttemberg, Germany, the son of Jakob and Anna Maria (Kern) Gaiser. His father died March 5, 1839. He and his mother came to America in 1848. They settled in the eastern states. Jacob married Christiana Dolde in St. Louis, Missouri on February 24, 1855. Anna Maria, Jacob and Christiana moved to Kansas, and were living in a log cabin west of the area where Leavenworth was platted in 1854.

Jacob built the St. Louis Exchange Hotel, the thirtieth building in Leavenworth. It burned in July 1856 when a fire broke out in the Polish Republican House on Cherokee Street. He rebuilt the St. Louis Exchange, but in 1858 the family moved to Steuben Township (now known as Kickapoo Township) near Pleasant Ridge, northwest of Leavenworth. In 1880, Jacob and Christiana celebrated their silver wedding anniversary in that home.

The Gaiser family returned to Leavenworth in 1890 and lived at 746 Osage in a three-room house until 1893 when he built a two-story red brick house on the same lot. This one, with the Queen Ann porch, has three chimneys. This house is still standing at 406 North Broadway.
