52 Ancestors: Week 43: Jacob Dell - #missing - Is he on your tree?

The only reason I know about Jacob Dell is that he is shown as one of the beneficiaries in the will of Isaac Dell.

1) Jacob Dell, Brother, All his wearing apparel

Jacob Dell, it is assumed, must have been born about 1744 (give or take 20 years)!  This is a pure guess based on the potential birth year of his brother, Isaac.  I assume Jacob died after Isaac, in 1810, as I would have thought he would have been alive in order to be a beneficiary?

So if you have a Jacob Dell in your family tree that just happens to have a brother, Isaac, that you may have lost trace of, please get in touch.
