Bio Photo I took my first baby steps in a graveyard, the Smith Cemetery on White Oak Mountain, W.Va. That explains a lot.

That would be wonderful if you could send his obituary and info on his inventions. I'm not on facebook, so an E-mail would be great. Thanks! (If you are a relative, I can transfer.)

Yep, it could be worth something if you ever want to part with any of it. Hard to find storage space for things, but it may be worth it down the road. The other side of the "coin" is that sentimental items can be more meaningful than the money. It's a tough balance and one hopes those that come after us will also appreciate some of those "old-fashioned" goodies. So nice you have a "J" in your family - I bet he'll enjoy and honor the watch fob.
Take care and thanks again,
JMo

So neat to have the watch fob passed through the generations. We'll never make it onto Antiques Roadshow - we only inherited the love of potatoes and bread from our Irish ancestors. Ha! I will make the transfer due to your relationship and I think you should leave that photo attached. It's fantastic. :o)

Best of luck with your work and research,
JMo

Sure thing, E.M.! I came across his death certificate w/burial place and added a memorial for him - 160199339. The certificate indicates his name was Jacob John (the informant reads "Family Record," so it's possible the certificate was "recreated" at a later date). All censuses I found except the 1850 show his first name as Jacob and so does his Civil War Draft Registration record. Is there any confirmation one way or the other if his name was John Jacob or Jacob John?

Also, you must be more closely related than us if you have his watch fob. For us it's distant and by marriage. Would you like me to transfer his memorial to you?

Thanks for all the work you do on Find A Grave!
