According to the 1880 Michigan Federal Census, Jacob was 51 years old, single, a farmer and born in Canada in 1829. He lived in Lakefield Township.
The June 1, 1880 Agricultural Census shows that Jacob owned 5 acres of tilled property and 35 acres of woodland and forest in Lakefield Township.
So happy to finally have my site live. Looking forward to sharing my passions of the Early Pioneers of Lakefield Township
