Thomas K. Jacobs, M. D.

Thomas K. Jacobs, M. D., a native of Lima, and one of
the extensive owners of real estate in Allen County, is a son of the
late Hon. Thomas K. Jacobs, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this
volume.
          He received his literary training in the common and high
schools of Lima and in the Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware.   In
1880 he graduated in medicine at the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati.
He practiced for a short time at Akron, Ohio, and then went to Chicago
and was engaged in practice there for 11 years. In 1891 it became
necessary for him to return to Lima in order to look after his large
property interests and he has not resumed practice on account of the
great demands upon his attention made by his numerous investments.  For
the past 15 years he has been engaged in laying out and platting
additions in the southeastern section of Lima. 
            In 1887 Dr. Jacobs was married to Helen Fisher, who is a
daughter of Joseph Fisher, of Akron, Ohio.  They have two children Paul
and Margaret, students in the Lima High School.  The family belongs to
the Presbyterian Church.
