I am looking for information regarding Jacob Applegate, my great-great grandfather.His son (my great grandfather) was Elmer Applegate (b. 1855). I found him in the 1900 Census in Toledo.His son (my grandfather) was Thomas Earl Applegate Sr. (b. 1885 d. 1964).
I am trying to find the parents of Jacob.I have heard the story of Thomas Applegate, who came to Massachusetts in 1834 from my father, who heard it from his father, who heard it from his father, etc.I am attempting to establish a link back to the first Thomas, but I run into a road block with Jacob's parents.
