I'm looking for Jacob Roofs parents.
The Jacob Roof that I'm searching was born sometime in early to middle 1700's not sure if in PA or VA.He died in 1814 in Shenandoah Co., VA.
He was married twice.His second wife was Anne KAGEY.One of their sons was MARTIN ROOF and he married MARGRET ZIRKLE daughter of JOHN ZIRKLE and ELINOR JONES.
Martin and his family left Va settling in IL and then moved to Cass County MO in the early 1860's.
My line is from Martin, His son JAMES HAWKINS ROOF,his duaghter ADA ROOF my grandmother.
I hope this makes sense.Unlike you I have only been doing this for a few years and still feel uncomfortable about posting messages.
