Jacob was a descendant of the 1614 Martyr, Hans Landis of Canton, Zurich, Hirzel, Switzerland. At the time of his birth this part of Steinsfurt, Germany was actually part of Switzerland.

The Mennonite Jacob Landis married Anna Witmer about 1688 in Zurich, Switzerland. Jacob knew her family growing up as he lived on a farm in the neighborhood.

Jacob's family immigrated during 1717 and then in 1722 they bought farm land in Lancaster Co., PA and relocated one last time.

The rest of Anna & Jacob's lives were spent on their farm of 200 acres on both sides of what is now know as "The Old Road".

Their son Benjamin was the first Mennonite preacher in the area and where they lived became the center of the Mellinger church activities.

I recently purchased the book, A Combined Landis/Landes Genealogy Report of the Descendants of Hans Landis and Katharina Schinz. I agree that Hans Jacob Landis was a descendant of the 1614 Martyr, Hans Landis. However, his parents are not the ones who are linked to this memorial page.
