"My brick wall is Jacob
from Bedford County PA. born about 1720.
I am wanting information
about Jacob his wife and children. We know very
little about Jacob in fact everything we know I just mentioned.
Jacob had one
son John Hain(e)s who was born in 1758 and died in 1813 in Bedford
John Hain(e)s married Lanah
and they had 7 children:
Daniel, John Jr., Henry,
George, Leonard, Hannah and Lenor.
John is listed on the 1800,
1810 Census and on the tax lists for Bedford County
in 1785. John's will is
in the Will Abstracts in Bedford Co. 1812 -13.
Stories are that John died
from complications (from the War of 1812).
There is also an article
or letter entitled "French & Indian War Document"
written by John Hains
to his father Jacob, "near Lancaster"Bedford, PA 1758.
If anyone has any information
to add or to document the above I would
certainly appreciate hearing
from you. This is the one area, I cannot break down.
My lineage is from Henry
Sr. who married Hannah Lybarger.
Their son Henry Jr., married
Margaret Maston and they had 7 children,
one of which is my grandfather
John M. and Caroline Milligan
Thank you for the courtesy
of a reply". - Carol Hains
