I believe that Jacob is listed as Misner in the 1870 Vernon County census. All of the names match up. His wife is Elizabeth and her paents (Nicolai) are living with them. If my speculation is right, then her sister is my ggm who was Rosa (Nekola) Toeller. Her Obituary(below)has them coming to America in 1862.
