Jacob Stille b. 1687 grandson of Olaf Persson Stille?

I am just getting in to the geneology game and doing the best to clean up the records I have inherited from my parents.

My records show a Jacob STILLE (b. 1687 in New Castle, Delaware; m. Rebeckah SPRINGER b. 1692) as the grandson of Olaf Persson STILLE through his son John/Johan b. 1646. Sounds OK but all the records of John/Johan I have been able to find say he and his wife Gertrude had 12 children, none of which were named Jacob.

Did someone make an inappropriate link or am I just not finding good information? Also is John just the anglicized version of the swedish Johan?

Thank you.
