Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 24, 1834
Death: Feb. 17, 1897

Jacob was the son of Ludwig Heinrich Obenland and Anna Maria Kronmueller. He was born on August 24, 1834 in Ohnholz, Wurttemburg, Germany. He was christened in the Lutheran church in Ohnholz on August 27, 1834. Jacob's father was born in Ilsfeld and his mother born in Buechelberg.

Jacob was one of seven children born to Ludwig and Anna Maria. He had four brothers, David Friederich Jacob, Johann Jacob Friederich, Karl and Johann Jacob, who passed away when he was 2 weeks old. Johann's two sisters were Catharina Friederike Dorothea and Catharina Dorothea Friederike Jacobina.

On October 6, 1861, Jacob married Christine Rosine Foernsler. They were married in the Lutheran church in Oehringen, Jagstkreis, Wurttemburg. Christine was born in 1841 in Baumerlenbach, Wurttemburg, Germany.

The couple had one child that we know of, Christian Carl Jacob Ferdinand (Carl), born in December of 1861.

In the fall of 1887, Jacob, Christine, their son Carl and Carl's 5 year old adopted son, Adolph, left Bremen, Germany on the Rhein. They arrived in New York in October, 1887.

The family first settled in Howard County, Maryland. On October 26, 1890, their son Carl remarried. He and his new wife gave Jacob 5 more grandchildren. Unfortunately, two died as babies.

Jacob died in Howard County on December 17, 1897. He was buried in Saint Paul's Lutheran Church near his two grandchildren.
