Thomas Jacob (about 1684 to 1753) - Quaker - Ireland, PA, DE, MD
On the off chance that any of you are following the line of Thomas Jacob (b. circa 1684 in Ireland - d. 1753 in Cecil County, Maryland), I thought I'd post this information.I am a direct descendant of Thomas and his wife, Mary Robinson.I am posting this here, because I am disgusted by the erroneous information on the LDS website.Unfortunately, that drivel keeps proliferating everywhere.It pays to check the sources of all the facts that we quote.
