Jacob's Revolutionary War pension file lists the following children with his wife Margaret Gearhart:
Frederick b. 10 September 1786, John b. 28 September 1788, Elizabeth b. 12 March 1791, Anna Martha b. 22 April 1793, Mary b. 10 September 1797, Margaret b. 16 July 1800. The only one of their children that I have information on is Mary who married John Van de Venter who was the son of Revolutionary War patriot, Peter Van de Venter. The family appeared to be living in Newstead, Erie Co., N.Y. in 1839 when Margaret applied for a widow's pension. Hope this is of some help. Audrey Florentine
