Research Notes

There is some confusion in the records distinguishing Johann Jacob from his younger brother Georg Jacob born 4 years later. The Points of Origin listing[4] references the 1816 neudorf census listing (family #29) and the 1858 Neudorf census listing (family #144) as associated with Johann Jacob, but the ages in those census records are a better match to Georg Jacob. No marriage record to someone named Barbara can be found for either person.
