Jacob Rupert

Dies Saturday Afternoon at His Home Near New Waterford

Jacob Rupert, a lifelong resident of Unity township, passed from this life last Saturday afternoon in the 75th year of his age. For some time Mr. Rupert had been ailing but his death came very unexpectedly to his friends.

He, in early manhood, had married Miss Maria Yarian, who with nine children survive him, besides two brothers and one sister. The funeral services occurred Tuesday morning at the Brick church and were conducted by Rev. Eich, of Petersburg.

Obituary sent from D Felger 7/5/2014

Stone reads Jacob Rupert Born Nov 7 1834 Died Aug 26 1905 Maria (Yarian) His wife born April 3 1838 Died May 10 1922

If our records are correct, Jacob was born Nov 1834, almost 4 months after the death of his father in July 1834. Mother, Rebecca Snook Rupert never remarried and had her maiden sister Magdalena Snook in house in the 1850 census records.

Jacob is listed as a farmer with 9 children in the 1880 census of Unity Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. He is likely living in the log cabin his grandfather Adam built, or in the house directly next to the log cabin. The Victorian style house with double chimney is likely circa 1870-1880. Further study to be done on dating property. Property to the south lives Isaac Emerson Heck 104 acres. (Macklin Road)

In 1900 he is living same location Unity Twp with neighbors:
being Elmer Rupert b 1866 to one side and John Rupert b 1832 the other side. Property near Emanuel Kibler and Peter Glosser, Thomas Metz and Johnathan Yarian. (Emanuel Kibler is son in law to Jacob Rupert)
