Today's tombstone is one that genealogist's always like to see when they are researching ancestors. Both birth and death dates are on the stone and these dates can be either confirmed or denied with further research. We also know that Jacob was a husband although we do not know his wife's name or if he had children. It is important to check the surrounding stones to see if these relatives are buried nearby. This is a very nicely crafted stone for being 99 years old. The short epitaph underneath the age is also a sweet touch.
