300. John JACOBS. The Jacobs Family as decended from "John Jacobs of Perkiomen". It is unfortunate that our ancestor's name as given above is all that is known of the founder of this family in America; where he came from and his family are not known with any certainty. Undefined legend gives Wales as the home of the immigrant and states that there were two brothers, John and Richard, who came to the banks of the Schuylkill; whether this was the first or second John it seems impossible to determine. - Richard Wistar Davids, 308 Walnut Street, Philadelphia.
