JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: Isaac JACOBS (Richmond, VA - 1870) #general

Sunny Solomon <memorie2@...>

I am attempting to locate descendants of Isaac and Mary JACOBS. Their
children, as they appeared in the 1870 U.S. Census of Jefferson Ward,
Henrico Co., Richmond, VA:
Nathan 17, born in NY; Benjamin 14, born in NY; Hester 11, born in So.
Carolina; Joseph 8, born in VA; Frank 4, born in VA; Janet 1mo., born in

Isaac JACOBS does not appear in 1880 VA Census, but an Isaac JACOBS with
a 13 yr old son named Frank does show up in the 1880 CA Census, Alameda
Count, City of Oakland. The CA Census indicates Frank was born in VA.
I am trying to determine if the Isaac JACOBS who married my ggmother,
Rosa, was the same Isaac JACOBS of the 1870 VA Census.

Both Isaacs list their birth place as Poland. The CA Isaac died in
January 1884. If any of the above sounds familiar, please respond to me
personally. Thanks for any possible help. I am trying to tie up some
loose ends and solve a family mystery in time for my Dad's 87th
