RE: 77500923 George Jacob
I looked at that 1880 census for the Jacobs family and see that the George is listed as a grandson, not a son, and is only 2 yrs old. The Gideon W. is also listed as a grandson. The George born in 1871 would have been 9 years old so I am not sure if he did make it to Canada. I will have to do further research to figure out who the grandson's parents are and see if I can learn anything else about the George born January 4,1871. I wonder if he is in the church records in Canada. Always another trail to follow.

thank you for all the Canada info you have put online for these families.

RE: 77500923 George Jacob
Thanks, I guess I will have to look harder for a death date.
Thanks again.

77500923 George Jacob
Hi Lorna,
I am puzzled. Jacob and Barbara Jacobs had a son named George Jacob (1845-1863) and then you show this second son, named George born and died in 1864 that I wasn't aware of. I understand that was a common action to name a new child after one that had died earlier.
What is interesting is that in the 1871 census is that they had another son named George in January of 1871 (he was 3/12's old). He also died young, at least before 1886 when his father died in Kansas. Is there any record of this third George Jacob's birth in 1871? I didn't find his death record in Kansas so wonder if he died in 1871 to 1872 before they immigrated to the US.

thank you,

RE: Barbara Studer Jacobs - 79386372
Thank you. We are hoping to make a trip to the area sometime in the next year so I am looking forward to that research. I see you are a quilter, too.

Barbara Studer Jacobs - 79386372
Hi Lorna,
I appreciate all the great information that you have contributed to findagrave. Barbara Studer Jacobs is my second great grandmother. Her daughter, Carolina, is my great grandmother. I think you were the contributor for her birthplace, parents, and sibling information. If so, can you tell me what the sources are for that information? I have visited Kansas where she lived but have not yet been able to take a trip to Ontario where she spent much of her life.
thank you,

Barbara Studer Jacobs / 79386372
DTelfer (#47283126) asked me about the source of the birth date and location for Barbara Studer Jacobs, and I replied that you were probably the source of that. I recommended that she contact you for more information. If I am incorrect, please accept my apologies.

Johann Rohfreitsch stone iat Locust Lane
My sister and I visited this stone a couple years ago after visiting Perth County Canada (Sebringville).
We believe we are direct descendants of John.
Page 145 of the book "Water Under the Bridges (Fullerton Township 1824-1997)" lists John and Eva's children as Catherine, 1849; Anna, 1851; Margaret, 1853; and Eva, 1856. It lists Eva ( his wife) as dieing in 1858. John and Anna's children are listed as Michael, 1860; George 1863; and Theobald, 1865. the book goes on to say that "In 1868 they sold the farm and moved from the township."

Margaret married Henry Fischer of Locust Lane and moved to Kensett Township in Worth County. They had 5 daughters, one named Emma. Emma married Oscar Schaub. They had one daughter, Wilma.
Wilma married Harvey Braun. Their daughter Clarice married Orland Bartz. My name is Merlin Bartz and my sister is Susan Grovert.
There seems to be some discrepancies in regard to the children of Johann Rohfrietsch listed and just wanted to bring that to your attention. My sister is big time into this stuff these days. I worked on it 40 years ago when it wasn't so "cool". By chance are you also a direct descendent?
My contact info is 2081 410th Street, Grafton, Iowa, 50440. My cell number is 641 903-9548.

I'm sorry I gave you the wrong information for Adam Henderson's spouse. It should read Mae Ethel Wright died March 2, 1970. I was thinking of my grandmother and not my great grandmother.

My apologies.
