There are four other children who are possibly the offspring of Nancy Jane and Jacob, but could also be children from Jacob’s first marriage to Catherine Schantz in New York.I have three family sources, which disagree on the parentage of the following children:
12.Mary Kleinbeck, born abt. 1864.She married Dinham.
13.John Kleinbeck, born September 28, 1863; died April 03, 1939.He married Flora “Esther” Moore.
14.Sarah Kleinbeck, born abt 1866.She married Hayden
15.Louise (Lou) Kleinbeck, born July 11, 1865; died June 13, 1943 in IA.She married Frederick J. AudlehelmJune 26, 1884 n Murray, Clarke Co., IA.
According to one source John and Louise are the offspring of Catherine Schantz and Jacob Kleinbeck, while Mary and Sarah are the offspring of Nancy Jane Fivecoat and Jacob Kleinbeck.A second source lists John and Mary as twins and Louise and Sarah as twins – possibly all offspring of Catherine.The third source states that both Jacob and Nancy Jane were married previously and each had two children with their spouses.
What we do know is that in the 1880 census the following children are living with Jacob Kleinbeck and (Nancy) Jane Fivecoat:
John 17 Iowa
Mary 17 Iowa
Louisa 15 Iowa
Sahra 15 Iowa
Lina 11 Iowa
Della 9 Iowa
