Luke Jaco
Luke Jaco died in March of 1868 in Missouri. I have copies of letters from Luke's son (Benjamin F Jaco) to his sister (Emeretta Tucker Reddehase) telling her when their father died. Supposedly, Luke's body was sent back to West Virginia to be buried beside his mother, Sarah Spence Mott Jaco.

Benjamin and Emeretta were the illegitimate children of Luke Jaco and Susan Tucker. Luke was married to Elizabeth Prunty at the time of their births.

In 1846 the Overseer of the Poor in Doddridge County, WV sued Luke Jaco on behalf of Susan Tucker. Court documents prove the Luke Jaco was the father of both Benjamin and Emeretta. Luke never had any children with his wife, Elizabeth Prunty. Maybe this is why he chose to have his son live with them.

Benjamin was in a Soldier's Home in Kansas when he wrote these letters to his sister. Emeretta was living in Bluemont, Marion County, WV. Susan Tucker was their mother. From what I can tell, Luke raised Benjamin and Susan raised Emeretta.

I have a copy of tax records that list Luke Jaco as owning several tracts of land in Doddridge County from 1845 to 1867. On the 1868 tax list, the entry says 'Luke Jaco Estate'. I think this proves that he really did die in 1868.

I also know that Luke Jaco still had ties to Doddridge County at the time of his death. I have a letter from a seamstress living in Doddridge County stating that she was 'working on janes for Jaco' in 1867. Luke was the only Jaco that ever lived in this area.

Mattie Jaco
I found a marriage record for a Maude M Jaco & John Vanaman in 1889. It says she was 17y and he was 22y.
I did notice that on the death record she was single. Do you have any info about her? Did they divorce or is this a total different person? I had added her as his wife on So I am not sure...,

Grace M. Naylor 9618345
I found a listing on Google that you posted regarding Grace. By chance, do you have a death record for her????. Tombstone doesn't show a death date.

Will appreciate any info you might have regarding Grace.

Once again many thanks for transfering the memorial for my 4th great-grandfather Alexander Johnston to me. I am getting to work now on adding in all the links I can and updating his bio with information I have.

You are very kind.
