FIFTH GENERATION 107

1783 Cornelius Jacobs, born North Castle, May 19, 1754; died Dur-
ham, Green Co., N. Y., April 18, 1811; son of Cornelius Jacobs.
Cornelius Jacobs, Jr. enlisted at the begining of the Revolutionary
war and served until its close. He was one of General Washington's
body guard, and, being a light man and a bold rider, was much
employed in carrying despatches. At the close of the war he was
paid off in worthless Continental money. In April 1811 he left
Dutchess County, where he had been residing, to join his brother in
law, David Lyon, in Oxford. The journey on horseback over the newly
opened Catskill Turnpike consumed four days. He found a place for
his family in a log cabin near South Oxford, but on his way back was
taken sick at Durham, Green Co., and died there before his wife could
reach him. She was thus left a widow with a large family to begin
pioneer life in the wilderness. She however heroically carried out to
a successful issue the difficult task of rearing and providing for her
numerous offspring, presumably with the aid of the three older boys.

Children of Cornelius and Elizabeth (Lyon) Jacobs:
