Jacob Leiter the elder is generally supposed to have been born in Holland about 1706. Jacob Leiter the younger was married to Julianna Fogle (born about 1752, died after 1820), daughter of John (Johan) Frederick Fogler (died about 1793) and Ann. The elder Abraham (born 9 Feb 1779)was also married to Julia Bowles

I am descended from Jacob the younger's daughter Judith (1791-1874) who married Benjamin Hartman (1788-1852)

Your Great-Grandmother Gertrude would be my 4 Cousin Twice Removed.

I have my family tree posted at (Mentzer File) and it includes biographies of the two Jacobs taken from the "History of Leitersburg District" by Herbert C. Bell published in 1898. There is also a biography in the book of the elder Abraham that I could scan or transcribe for you.
