Jacob/JacobsFN: Frank Jacobs reports that Prof. Pleve had said elsewhere that the Pfeifer FSL says they were fromUC Neuburg, Mainz. Frank is now going to look into church records kept for Neuburg Hof, Kurmainz for these Jacobs.  Frank also has found through DNA tests that this family which is of the I1a haplogroup is distantly related to the Reeb/Reb family of Alsace Lorraine, France, that settled in Kamenka, and which is of the I1c haplogroup.   He thinks it highly likely that his Jacob family is descended from a Swedish soldier involved in the Swedish invasion and occupation  of the Alsace during the 30-years War.  He also notes that one Jacob descendent, who died on his way to America, was buried in a Jewish cemetery in Kaunas, Poland.

Scheuerman, Pilgrims on the Earth, 1976, pp.131-37.  An abbreviated, and comewhat changed, version was also printed in Stumpp, The Emigration, pp.78-81, with the entries and additional information interspersed alphabetically pp.117-165.  A translation of the original FSL is published in Pleve, Einwanderung …, vol.II, pp.173-194.  According to Kromm and Pleve versions, the first settlers were from the following places with the family names shown here in parens.  Information and spelling sometimes differ between Kromm and Pleve – information from Kromm is presented here in standard bold, if it appears the same way in Pleve, it is underlined, if it appears only in Pleve, it is bold italicized; the number following the family name is the household number in the FSL; information within square brackets are my additions, usually based on contemporary maps -- rak:
