JACOB ERTEL, farmer, P.O. Maineville. the subject of this sketch was born in this township in the year 1810, and is a son of Daniel Ertel, who settled in the southwestern part of the township in 1792. He came from Pennsylvania with his family, wife (Catherine) and three children. He purchased 600 acres of land but lost all but 100 acre by putting up a forfeit he could not redeem. On this land he lived and prospered, built a "still" house, and afterwards purchased other lands at from $2.50 to $3.00 per acre, owning in the aggregate about 1,000 acres. He died in 1831 at the age of 54 years. He had by his wife eleven children, two of whom are living, viz: Sophia and our subject. His wife survived him and died at the age of 94 years. Valentine, their son, served in the War of 1812. Our subject was reared on the farm and has seen as much of the hardship of this country as any other man, and has made rails at 25 cents per hundred. He was married in 1834 to Malinda Borum. For twenty years he was engaged in the plant business in Loveland and at home, and in 1837 settled where he now lives. At present he owns 64 2/3 acres of land. Twelve children have been born to them, five living, viz: James, Lewis M., Benjamin F., Sabina and Elizabeth. The deceased are, Andrew J., Nancy J., Solomon, Kemper, Adalaide, and two who died in infancy. The living are, with a single exception, living in the county, and are well-to-do citizens.

FOOTNOTES: [a place to add additional information that you might want to submit]

July 09, 2004 Linda Boorom In regards to Jacob & Malinda Ertel, I have their marriage record (Ertel mispelled likely due to transcriptions following 2 courthouse fires after their marriage) & also mention of the 2 of them in an 1847 summons (Daniel Artles vs. Elizabeth Booram) which has been handed down my husbands family. Both I have posted to my personal website (

Of note, Daniel Artles AKA Ertel was Jacob's brother who had married Lydia Booram d/o Aaron. I've concluded by process of elimination that Malinda, Jacob's wife was half sister to Lydia, begot of the marriage of Aaron Booram to the widow Elizabeth Remley 1815 in Warren Co.
