Andrew Paul "Andy" Jacobs
Birth: Jan. 3, 1919
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 2007
Gaston County
North Carolina, USA

* Was born in Tarentum, PA and grew up in Natrona Heights, PA.

* Son of Irene & Thomas Jakubec.

* Throughout the years I have heard that my grandfather had two brothers but I can't find any facts/census pages/death certificates to prove that. I've heard he had an older brother and a younger brother.

* graduated from Har-Brack [Union] High School in Class of 1938, Natrona Heights, PA.

* Fought in the 100th Division in the 7th Army. Landed in Marsailles, France with the 7th. He was in the Artillery, 105M Howitzers. (written by my father for the Washington D.C. WWII memorial registry website)

* Married Eva Magalene (Dye) on August 4, 1948 in St. Michaels Catholic Church in Gastonia, North Carolina after he got back from WWII.
>> Interesting fact: He got married under "Jakubec" instead of Jacobs. I don't when he changed his name but it had to be sometime between August 1948 and Sept. 1949 (because their daughter was born Sept. 7, 1949).
Witnesses at their wedding: his sister-in-law, Cora and her husband, Irvin McCorkle.

You will be missed grandfather.
You are not in pain anymore.
Can't wait to see you again.
