There is a little bit about them in the history, under their son's bio.

Pages 313 & 314:

Henry Melvin Jacobs, son of W.M. and Elizabeth Jacobs, was born on the place wehre he now lives, four and one-half miles south of Downing, September 4, 1875. He was married to Miss Effie McClosky September 27, 1903. They have one child, Lulu Imogene, four years old.

W.M.Jacobs was a native of Lexington County, Kentucky. He was born October 15, 1831. His wife, Elizabeth Johnston was born May 15, 1836. They were married in 1854.Moving here in 1856, he bought the eighty acres referred to before for a price of three hundred dollars. W.M. Jacobs was well known over the country where he bought thousands of hogs. He died June 19, 1903. Mrs. Jacobs, now 74 years old lives with her son. Effie McClosky was the daughter of Paul T. McCloskey. She is twenty-seven years old.
