  The AIS Mortality Index indicates that Jacob was born in 1804.  AIS Mortality Index states that he died in Feb 1879.  3   Notes left by the late Elizabeth Potter Pazel says that he was born in 1805 in New York.  Notes from Elizabeth Potter Pazel, Jacob's great granddaughter, say that Jacob died 3 July 1879.1  1850 Census says that he is 47, which would indicate  birth year of 1802.  1850 Census shows him with children by 1st & 2d wives, but without a wife.  Also living in the household in 1850 census is Caroline Willson, aged 30, born in PA.2  He has not been located in the 1860 Census.7  1870 Census says that he is 65, which would indicate a birth year of 1804.4  He purchased 30 acres in 1833 that was described as part of the Manor of Damascus, from Isaac Brown, Berlin Township, Wayne County, PA.  No deed recorded, but mortgage recorded in the sum of $500.00 in Book #2, Page 59 and was satisfied on 25 May 1835.  The mortgage stated that he was from Lumberland, Sullivan County, NY.  The purchase of another 66 acres from John Keesler for $450.00 was recorded in Deed Book #11, Page 197, Wayne County Courthouse, Honesdale, PA,  in July 1839.  Another 86 acres were purchased in May 1851 from Nicholas Conklin for $232.67 and recorded in Deed Book #20, Page 557.  The original grant of this land was to Mr. Shields and his wife, Hannah.  Most of Jacob's property was lost in a sheriff's sale, but he left an estate probated in the Wayne County Court in 1879, and inventoried at $135.00.  David Sutliff was named executor.  Jacob's third wife, Ruth Jane Little Polick preceded him in death.    Notes from the late Elizabeth Potter Pazel say that he is buried in Conklin Hill Cemetery, but in August 2001, great great granddaughter, Carol Marie Potter Meadows, observed no stone with his name.1
