Elizabeth (Ruff) Jacobs (c.1763-1849)

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

Elizabeth Ruff was born between 1763 and 1766, perhaps in Somerstown (Somers), Westchester County, New York. She married Uriah Jacobs, a soldier of the American Revolution, on October 11, 1781. They were married in Somers, Westchester County, New York. Uriah died in 1841 and Elizabeth died at the age of 83 on July 1, 1849. She rests in Weltonville Cemetery in Newark Valley, Tioga County, New York.

Elizabeth's grave can be found on Findagrave:

Uriah and Elizabeth Jacobs were my 5th great-grandparents. My line of descent is through her son, Thomas Jacobs (1788-1884). Thomas' son, John W. Jacobs (c. 1823-1909) was the father of Olive Jane Jacobs. Olive married Arthur Dykeman and their daughter, Vena Dykeman, was my great-grandmother.
