Biography

John Jacob came to America on 8 Oct 1737 on the ship "Charming Nancy". He farmed in Pennsylvania. Other sources say he lived to be 104 years old, that 2 or 3 weeks before he died, he complained of feeling sleepy. He sat in his big arm chair sleeping most of the time. When asked if he were sick, he would reply, "No, but I am so sleepy!" One morning he went to sleep very early in his chair. The family, think him to be asleep, didn't try to disturb him for a long period. Finally when they tried to rouse him, they found him dead.
