Research Note

Streets cited above discusses that the reason he was called Jacob Jr was to distinguish him from his grandfather, called Jacob Sr. In fact, his birth record names his father as Immanuel not as Jacob Immanuel as used in the Wikipedia article. Streets cited above spells his father's given name as Emanuel.
