Research Notes

  1. Translation of "Jacques" to "Jacob" is conjectural, it could possibly be Johann or Johannes.
  2. Reference to "Rhineberg" in the 1870 US Federal Census record is possibly meant to be "Rheinbund". Rhineberg is in northwest Germany, Großsteinhausen is in the south - and was part of the Rheinbund between 1806-1813 during which time Frederick was born. (He lists Bavaria as his birthplace in 1860 and 1880.)
  3. Birth name from record Frederic Jacques is in French likely due to the area being part of the French Confédération du Rhin (Rheinbund) when Frederick was born and the records kept in French during that period.
