Jacob Overstreet was a free man of color in Jessamine County, Kentucky. His wife is Celia whose last name on most all documentation is Fitch. Philanzo Fitch was a slave owner in Jessamine County and we know for sure that he was the slave owner of Edmund Overstreet.
According to the 1840 Census records, Jacob is a free man of color and the head of his home in Jessamine County, Kentucky. Living with him is 1 female slave age 36-55 and 1 female slave under the age of 10.
According to the 1870 Census records, Jacob is living in Jessaimine County, Kentucky, District 1. He is a farmer by trade. The value of his real estate is $700 and the value of his personal property is $300. He is 65 years of age, cannot read or write and listed as Mulatto. Living in the home with Jacob is his wife Celia (spelled Sellie) age 60. She is listed as keeping house. Also living in the home is Jeff, age 18, mulatto male and farm hand; Ellin, age 20, mulatto female and at home; and Jacob, age 12, mulatto male and farm hand.
