Sorry, Rita. The date 1875 should have been 1775; the war was our Revolution, not the Civil War. As a son of Johannes and Anna Barbara, Jacob would have been born 1750, but I was told (no documentation) some time ago that he arrived in the States in 1775 at the age of 17 - which would make his birth year 1758. And your English is a whole lot better than my German.
