Jacob's age of B5 years & 1 month listed on his tombstone is definitely wrong. Calculating his birthdate using his death date of 8 August 1846 and this age makes his birthdate 8 July 1761. This does not agree with the records of Orphans Court of Lancaster Co., PA, which indicated he became of age (21 years)about 1793, thus he was born c1772, making him about 74 when he died.
