We are still researching all possibilities for Jacob's parents, sibblings and life events. Let us know about any information you may have.
Links on the left: Rachel Zook Sheets who is a volunteer at the Palatines to America Library in Columbus, Ohio. http://www.palam.org/ They research German ancestors and she is finding more leads to Jacob and his ancestors.
The second link in left column is for Alice Sheets Marriot of the Marriot Hotels who is linked to us through the DNA project. Her family's researchers have not been able to connect to our Jacob but she may be descended from a brother of Jacob. Perhaps Mathias or Yost, it is still being researched by her family.
