Jacob Beecher 1

  • Born: 21 Dec 1789, Germany Twp., Adams, PA 2 3 4
  • Christened: 28 Mar 1790, Littlestown: St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Adams, PA 2 3 4

   Another name for Jacob was Jacob Bücher.3

  Christening Notes:

Sponsors were Abraham Rek and Margaret. The birth date is in dispute, apparently because the handwriting is difficult to interpret in the church book. Edward Wright in his "Adams Co. Church Records of the Eighteenth Century" listed both dates as: Oct. 21, 1789 [Dec 21 1789?] bapt. Mar 28, 1790. The transcription of the church record book to the IGI was entered as Dec 21 1789. The latter is more likely; often children in the 1700's were baptized either 30 or 90 days after birth.

  Noted events in his life were:

1. He has conflicting birth information of 21 Oct 1789 and Straban Twp., Adams, PA. 5

3. Newspaper: The Adams Sentinel, 18 Sep 1811, Gettysburg, Adams, PA. 7 CAUTION. Whereas I gave a note unto Jacob Beecher conditioned for the payment of 65 dollars, for a Mare, and as I conceive of myself defrauded in the purchase -- this is, therefore, to forewarn all persons from taking an assignment of of said note, as I am determined not to pay the same, unless compelled by law.
