Notes

  • Info from Brian Chalmers.

    In 1887 he was a 'dry goods clerk' in Oakland, California, USA.

    Jacob seems to have had an "interesting" life. He was a merchant in California, and in 1892 was shot in Berkeley, California by his gardener, who the newspapers named 'Old Man' Young. However Jacob survived this incedent, and in 1895 his wife filed for divorce on the grounds of extreme cruelty, so maybe 'Old Man' Young had a point. When Jacob died in 1897 a stone was erected to him by his mother, sisters and brother.
