According to Sunshine Foulke Chambers' book ("Allied Families: This sketch contains the names of some of the descendants of Andreas Volck-Foulke and Mathias Lupfer"), Jacob Foulk, Sr. (born 1736 in Berks Co., PA) had a son Daniel who died on Aug. 18, 1852 at the age of 57 years.Daniel was married to an Elizabeth who died in 1864 at the age of 72 years.They had at least one son named William who was born on Aug. 23, 1821 and died Nov. 3, 1857.
Jacob Foulke, Sr. had a son Jacob Foulke, Jr. who ran a pottery in Morgantown, WV in the early 1800s.On Nov. 10, 1803 he married Gertrude Horton Ridgeway (daughter of Elihue Horton) who was the widow of Joel Ridgeway.On April 8, 1806 Jacob Foulk, Jr. was to keep the peace toward his wife Gertrude.They apparently got a divorce since his wife is listed as Elizabeth in a Monongalia record as early as 1808.And Gertrude later married Osborn Jenkins
There is a Monongalia County record that says Jacob Foulk, Jr. was in Brooke Co., VA/WV in 1818.I found an estate settlement record for a Jacob Foulk in Brooke Co., VA/WV dated Dec. 31, 1821.His wife is listed as Elizabeth Foulk.
If you believe that your Daniel is descended from a Jacob Foulk, you may want to research the possibility that Daniel was the son of Jacob Foulk, Jr.Marshall and Brooke Counties are very close together in West Virginia.A book "Ceramics in America 2004" has some information about Jacob Foulk, Jr. and his Morgantown pottery.
You will find some of the descendants of Jacob Foulk, Sr. in Trumbull Co., OH and also Mercer Co., PA.I have never been able to document where Margaret and Jacob Foulk, Sr. died and are buried.
You may want to check "Portrait Biographical Album of De Witt and Piatt Counties, IL" (Chapman Bros., Chicago, 1891) p. 363.There is an article about John M. Foulks (born June 14, 1824 in Trumbull Co., OH), the son of David Foulks.According to this source, David was the son of Jacob Foulks.The person who wrote this information says that Jacob Foulks was married twice (once to a Margaret Snodgrass) and that David was the youngest of 22 children from Jacob's two marriages. It goes on to say that Jacob and his wife died in Trumbull Co., OH.
Sunshine Foulke Chambers wrote her book sometime before 1952 and she did not indicate that Jacob Foulke, Sr. was married twice or that he had 22 children.Sunshine indicates that Jacob Foulke, Sr. was the father of at least 10 children:Charles, Barbara, Sarah, George, Jacob, Jr., David, Peter, Henry, Daniel, and John.At Chautauqua Lake I stayed in a house next door to the Foulke House.I stopped by and learned that Sunshine wrote much of her book at Chautauqua.Sunshine (born 1875) was the daughter of Louise Lupfer and Rev. Charles Wesley Foulke.Charles was a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Erie Conference of Pennsylvania and had been active at Chautauqua Institute.
