The Will we have of Jacob Girardin states that he died in 1773. He was married to Maria Francesca Weidersham and to Maria Otilla Blasi, (not sure of her last name) have it at home but my system is down! He had a daughter Susannah or Maria Susannah who immigrated to the Lehigh/Northampton County area of PA with her husband Johann Henry Frantz and 2 children in 1748, we believe on the Ship Two Brothers, and landed in Philadelphia, PA.

The Will states that Jacob #1 had 2 wives. (It also spells his name as Girardin and as Shiradin.) He died in Vincent Township, Chester County, PA. According to the Will, Jacob and Susannah (and possibly 2 of his other children) were apparently the son and daugher (& others) of wife #1. We also have Jacob #1's father as Paul Girardin and his Mother as Johanetta Charpentier. The Father and Mother of Jacob #1, comes by way of other researchers from Gen Forum; however, up to Jacob #1 is our own research.

We have been to Bowers Cemetery, and indeed, as the other researcher indicated, Jacob Girardin in buried next to Jacob Scharadin and Susannah DeLong.

Does this follow with any of your information?
