Little is known about Jacob.  It is hard to believe that Jacob and his Wife could have had 13 children and her identity could remain a mystery, however, as of this writing, we have no idea who she may have been.
There is a Jacob on the 1850 census of Vand. Co. and he is listed as being 61 years and born in (PA.)  Living with him is Lucinda -19, and Martha - 16.  This is the one living one dwelling away from (son) Isaac and William.  On the 1860 census the Jacob is listed at 77 years and born in (KY.) and is living with Isaac.  I believe this is the same individual and if it is, which I hope, your guess is as good as mine as to where and when he was born.  I also believe this is the same Jacob mentioned in the estate settlement of Peter VanBibber who died there in Vand Co. in 1838.  He is listed as the only living heir of the above Peter.
