This appears to be about one of Jacob's sons:

JOHN GESAMAN, farmer; P.O. North Lawrence; is a son of Jacob and Barbara (Reichard) Gesaman, natives of Franklin Co., Penn.; they settled in Lawrence Township in 1829, and were residents of the township until their death; his mother died in 1847, and his father subsequently married Anna M. Bruch, a widow. By the first marriage there were ten children, seven of whom are now living -- Lavina Shilling, living in Indiana; John; Kate Calbeck, of Noble Co., Ind.; Joseph, also a resident there; Sabina Walter, living in Wayne Co., Ohio; Alvira Lawrence and Melinda Linn, residents of Lawrence Township. By the second wife there were three children, two now living -- Daniel, living in Michigan, and Sarah Linn, also a resident of Michigan. His father died in 1861. John Gesaman was born in Westmoreland Co., Penn.; he owns 175 acres of improved land, in Lawrence Township, where he has lived since 1 year old; his occupation has been that of a farmer, but he has devoted a large amount of time in traveling through adjoining counties as a lecturer to children in schools, principally; his lecture was "Morals, Manners and Temperance," and his desire to instill in the minds of the young elevated thought and the use of good education; he was married, in 1849, to Miss Mary M. Reinoehl, daughter of William Reinoehl, an early settler of Lawrence Township; she is a native of the township. Mr. and Mrs. Gesaman have had five children, only two of whom now survive -- George Q. and Ezra. They are members of the United Brethren Church, and esteemed members of society.
