Bill Refer to my posting on Samuel Beer. His will indicates Jacob Beer as his son. The Jacob Beer married to Elizabeth McAfoose was Red Jake. I have confirmation on this from Ann Beer Mayer's grandfather told her about REd Jake told her stories about Red Jake.Also Velda Smail used the same reference in 1990 when I visited her outside of Kittaning. You asked about when Jacob moved to Eldred Township, Jefferson County.I have found him in the 1830 census there.
