Jenny, message #10 and Sara, message #267 are cousins of mine. Our patriarch was Albert Henri Rudolph Nicholas Augustus Jacobi (Jacoby), born Feb 10, 1813 in Prussia. His citizenship certificate, dated 1842, states he was of Jewish faith. Henri married Sarah Ann Jewell in 1845 and went to Little Rock, AR shortly after 1850. They had seven children. Henri,Jr. lived only three years. Their second son, Albert Cohn, was our common grandfather. There are Cohns in the Jewish community in Little Rock. Could Henry's mother's maiden name have been Cohn and family ties have brought them to Little Rock? Henri was a Mason and transferred his membership to Magnolia Lodge #60 from Galesburg, IL lodge #372. I am curious know why he was in Illinois. I have been told there are Jacobys in the Dallas area who are related. Henri was supposed to have come from Prussia with a brother and this family is from that line. A few members of the Dallas family live in Little Rock. A firm connection has not been established. Can anyone help?
