I am researching the history of my century home, built around 1850 - and am looking for more info about Jacob, who sold my house to David Garrow on March 5, 1873. I don't know if Jacob is the original owner of the house, but the records don't go back any further.
The house is located on Centre Street (might have been called Simcoe street back then) in Oshawa, Ontario.
If I have the right man, he was born about 1827, married Eliza Anne VANSICKLER on November 15, 1849.
She died on July 4, 1855. He was Irish, Baptist, and worked as a clerk/provision dealer.
