Info on JACOBS from Wreschen, TRENCHER from Sawin #usa


I cannot find information about father’s family before they arrived in the US — from Wreschen, my ggf, Abraham I. JACOBS (b 1837; arr. 1855?), ggm Rachel SEIFFER (b. 1838); from Sawin, ggf Pinchus TRENCHER (b. 1851; arr. 1885?), ggm Leah Taube MARGULIES/GREENSPAN. Any help on how to proceed would be much appreciated.
