Jacob Beaver
Birth: Jun. 23, 1825
Perry County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 29, 1898
Miami County

Jacob was the eldest child of John Beaver and Elizabeth Bower.

He married Jane Darlington, the eldest child of Wilson Darlington and Mary Barbara Lupfer, on November 6, 1851 in New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania. He was the father of four children:
Adda, Elizabeth, Harvey McClure, and Meredith Darlington Beaver.

Jacob enlisted in the Army in Perry County on August 5, 1862, and mustered in to Federal service at Harrisburg on August 11. He served as a Private in Company G, 133rd Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, and fought at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was honorably discharged with his Company on May 26, 1863.

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.

The 1875 Kansas Census shows Jacob back in Paola, working as a blacksmith and living with second wife Jane M., Elizabeth and Meredith. Addie and Harvey had stayed behind in New Bloomfield with their grandparents, Wilson and Mary Darlington.

Jacob worked as a blacksmith and farmer. He was a Republican, and a member of the Methodist Church.
