After the war, Jacob moved his family to Paola, Kansas in 1868. His wife, Jane Darlington died there of typhoid fever on September 16, 1869.
He returned to New Bloomfield, where he re-married on March 5, 1872 to Jane Mary Darlington, the eldest child of David Darlington and Margaret Barnett. She was a 1st-cousin of his first wife.
