Jacob Clos
Birth: Apr. 14, 1849
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Death: Jun. 11, 1929
Bracken County
Kentucky, USA

In 1884, he lived at the south end of Fairview Precient #6 (about halfway between Salem Ridge Road and Pepper Mills Road) of Bracken County, KY. He came to the United States in 1868 to dodge the draft of the German Army. He was a farmer and a wheelwright. He was a man of strong Christian beliefs, however, it appears that while he would not pick a fight, he would never back down when challenged. It was said of him, "In a fight, he was the meanest man there every was."

His will is recoreded in the County Courthouse in Brooksville, Bracken County, KY in Book P-244 (#9270). Also, he is listed in his father's will.
