Richard T. Jacobus is the son of Tunis (Anthony) Jacobus (1779-1848) and Lydia Vreeland (b. ca. 1778) of Caldwell Twp., Essex Co., NJ. Tunis and Lydia were married at Caldwell Presbyterian Church on 29 June 1799; Tunis died on 16 Dec. 1848 and is buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery. Richard, who was born around 1815, is named as Richard T. Jacobus in his father's 1844 will. Richard and his brother Tunis Jr. were left the southern half of the homestead farm in Caldwell, Richard "to have the southerly part on which he has erected a house." Hope this is helpful.
