thanks to everyone for their help. i'm particularly interested in the statement about jacob being a nickname as he was a jacobite. i have thought all along that there was a scottish connection because west virginia and the surrounding areas are very similar to scotland - lots of hills, woodland, mining, farming; especially after i saw a picture of the family crest. this is known here in scotland as 'the lion rampant' and it appears to be holding a banner similar to the st andrews flag, also known as the saltire. my immediate family names are hunter (my maiden/paternal), adkins, frazier, mckenzie, kincaid, findlay, and napier (that i can remember offhand). so you can see the interest. i wonder if there was any influx to the colonies from the highland clearances here in scotland?
anyway, food for thought. i look forward to hearing more... (sorry i mentioned the wrong war in my first message, meant war of independence)
