Donna, I think you're right. This is too much of a coincidence. I have a definite link to CT (New Haven, New britain, & Bridgeport). SSDI shows both families in those areas, but, until now,no connection. It is possible the Greenville, Ohio JACOBY are related. I have written to them. They did not repond. I am less optimistic about Ohio. I've beaten Darke County into ruble looking for Fred. If he was there, he must have been in seclusion.Thanks for the assist, JJ P.S. Weren't you looking for some of the JACOBYS in Iowa? And maybe someother place? A gentleman contacted me concerning extensive information he has on that area. I'm trying to put you two in contact. Can I give him your email? I also refered him here and gave your name. Hope you don't mind.
