Birth Certificate – Angel Jacobs [Z015] s/o Henry Jacobs and Elizabeth (nee Myers)
*Up to now I have only had an entry for an A H Jacobs based on entries in Berger at the time of his mother’s death in 1877.
*I believe that Angel Jacobs could be the AH referred to. If you know/think different, please tell me.
Birth Certificate – Jane Jacobs [Z111] d/o Ezra Jacobs and Nancy (Ann) (nee Cohen)
*Now our current entry for Jane is based on the 1851 census which appears to gives her age as 16
*The entry is poor but the age is based on her being above her 12 year old sister in the list.
*I now believe that the age reads 10 and is simply out of order in the list
Birth Certificate – Elizabeth Jacobs [Z581] d/o Ezra Jacobs and Nancy (Ann) (nee Cohen)
*This is a new entry
Birth Certificte – Rachel Jacobs [Z583] d/o Ezra Jacobs and Nancy (Ann) (nee Cohen)
*This is a new entry
Birth Certificate – Moses (Myer/Morris) [Z117] d/o Ezra Jacobs and Nancy (Ann) (nee Cohen)
*Until now we have only known him as Myer (1851 census) or Morris (1861 census)
From synagogue transcript provided by Debbie Bozkurt
Birth date (6 Oct 1862) of David Jacobs [Z265] s/o Henry Jacobs & Ellen (nee Silverstone)
1 Dec 1853 there is a birth of Jacob Jacobs s/o Ezra Jacobs and Nancy (Ann) (nee Cohen)
*I believe that this could be John Jacobs [Z123]. The dates fit and we have other instances of Jacob being changed to John
