  • Notes 


    • I have come across a fascinating story about Jacob, and wonder if anyone else can coroborate (or refute) the story. According to the story, sometime after 1790, Jabob moved his family from New London County, Connecticut to Pennsylvania (possibly near Wilkesbarre?), and he invested his wife's money in a flat-boat. Jacob and a partner floated down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans to bring back molassas, sugar, rum, etc. However, somewhere on the return trip, they were attacked by Indians or river pirates, and Jacob was killed. His partner returned and told Jacob's widow, Rebecca, of the attack and the death of Jacob. - Lee James
