Sorry, I was mistaken. Your Jacob was the son of Henry Dishong and his first wife, Elizabeth Frankfodder who was born in 1840 in Ohio. She must have died young because Henry apparently was married to Sarah Stout by 1868. The wife in the 1860 census is named Elizabeth. My bad.
In the 1860 census is a Mary Frankfather aged 24 living with Henry, Elizabeth and baby Jacob. Probably the sister of Elizabeth and I can't help but wonder if Elizabeth was sickly and Mary was living with the family to help out.
In the 1870 census we find Henry with second wife Sarah and children James and Rosa. Jacob would only be 10 years old in 1870 but isn't with the family.
There is an 1870 census for a John R. Brenizer and wife Mary in Clear Creek, Huntington County OH and they have Jacob J. Dishong aged 10 with them. The Mary is probably Mary Frankfather. She married John Brenizer and apparently had her sister's child with her for a while.
In the 1880 census, Jacob J. Dishong aged 20 is back with father Henry, stepmother Sarah, siblings James, Rosa, Laura and Wesley.
Henry was apparently a Private in the 7th Regiment, Indiana Cavalry during the Civil War. He died on September 28, 1912 at the age of 78. He applied for a Invalid's pension in December 1869 and his wife Sarah applied for wife's pension in October of 1912 after his death. I assume he must have incurred some kind of injury during the war.
Sorry for the confusion.
Enjoy the search.
