Jacob "Jacobus Egg" Egg
Birth: 1698, Switzerland
Death: 1748, USA

Husband of Anna Maria Margaret (Kilcher) Egg

Jacob Egg/Eck, arrived in Philadelphia about 1746, with three Sons and two Daughters. He is buried in the public graveyard at Ridge Vally, Bucks County, PA., not far from what had been the family Farm. Recorded here at St. Paul's Goshenhoppen; Bally, PA.

Translated from Latin: February 13, 1748 -

Because of an extended illness, I, Jacob Egg have to distribute my belongings in the presence of witnesses. If it can be executed, I will to Hannes Egg and Jacob Egg and Johannes Egg, each one 33 pounds, to Durus Egg and Joseph Egg each one 25 pounds. And Hannes Egg and Jacob Egg and Johannes Egg are to draw for six years the interest from the sale once it is carried out. If one or the other of two brothers should come, he must receive his appropriate share. Anna Maria Eggin and Anna Eggin shall each receive 25 pounds and each one the bed she is sleeping in and each one her dishes.
Everything is to be sold, horses and cattle, hogs and household goods and everything there is. If at all possible, each one should receive an equal share. If, however, the final proceeds are smaller, each one should proportionately take a lesser amount. And once the six years have passed and neither of the two sons has appeared, then the other five shall receive everything in equal parts.

Submitter's notes: There is a Valentinus Waibel listed in Gundershoffen, Germany which may be Valentine Weibel which may be the possible one who married Anna Maria Egg (Joseph)

Submitter's notes: Egg/Eck family is of Swiss/Confederate Helvectica origin

Submitter's notes: I believe this to be a Gun maker family of Switzerland.
