Your Jacob was an older brother to my 3rd Great Grandfather Conrad !
Johann Michael, later just Michael and his wife Philippina had 10 children in all.
I had part of your line/ I had 6 children for Catherine and Jacob including Abby as she was called. More than likely a nickname for Abigail.
Anyway back to Jacob's brothers and sisters
Elisabeth-no date of birth
then your Jacob
then TWIN's Conrad and Phillip born Feb 9, 1777
Abraham was next born Feb 2, 1781
Catharina A born Dec 13, 1783
Johannes born Oct 1, 1785
Barbara born May 22, 1788
Daniel born Feb 25, 1790
Peter born Feb 3, 1805

The twins must have been stinkers , plus Michael was in the Rev War. Don't have a copy of his papers, but do have pictures we took in Oct 1991 at his grave in New Tripoli, Lynn Twn, Lehigh Co., Pa. Their graves are next to the stone church the family helped to build 3 times and attended faithfully
Ebinezer Reformed Church. It was wood twice, the first time it burned and they rebuilt and then now the beautiful stone church they have now.
There are 2 cemeteries, the old part on the right hand side of the church
And then the larger part across the street.
If you go there you will learn to at least read our name in the Germanic writting, it is great,
Allentown has a lot of the church's history and a tiny little local historical group are wonderful people.
I would love more on your branch and I have pictures and wills to share as well if you care to email me at mbinkley@ I can then send attachments to you.
Wonderful to meet you.
