Hello,
I am defended through Rachel Secrest and Goodwin Harris. I am curious about her father, Jacob. The DAR patriot index lists Barbara as his first wife, and a Nancy as a second. I don't have any first hand proof of Barbara's last name, although the message boards list her as a Simms. I am also looking for a document stating where Jacob was from. Was he from Switzerland or was he born in North Carolina? I do have a copy of his will, and I know that he went to Monroe County, Tennessee with the Harris family. Any further info that would fill holes would be much appreciated!
Were any of his sons also Rev. War or 1812 soldiers?

Thanks!
Gail Itschner
