Jacob Denlinger, an old and prominent farmer of Leacock township, Lancaster county, where he is highly respected and esteemed for his many manly and honorable qualities, was born in Paradise township, Oct. 30, 1849, a son of John and Mary (Brubaker) Denlinger, both of whom were natives of Lancaster County.

Jacob Denlinger remained with his parents until his marriage, when he settled on a farm in East Hempfield township, which he was engaged in cultivation some six years. At the end of that period he removed to his present home place, which comprises some ninety acres, in a fine state of tillage. He also owns another farm, and is well off. Both he and his wife belong to the Mennonite Church, of which he is a trustee at the present time. In politics he is a Republican, and holds an enviable place in the estimation of his neighbors, who know him well, and speak highly of his honest character, industrious habits, and genial disposition."
