Husband of Sarah H. 'Sallie' Graves, they were married April 27, 1828 in Floyd County, Indiana.

Jacob at one time owned several farms in and around New Albany, but the family made their home on their land near Mt. Tabor Church.

Jacob Hand, aged ninety-one years, a pioneer of this county, died Sunday at his home near Mt. Tabor church, after a long illness. He was born in Virginia, and came to this county with his parents eighty years ago. --Public Press (New Albany, Indiana); Wednesday, 28 Jul 1897, pg. 4, col.

NOTE: The above obituary incorrectly lists his place of birth as Virginia. On all census records he reports his place of birth as New Jersey, which is where his parents resided before coming to Indiana and settling in Floyd County prior to 1820.
