Rev. Jacob Price

M, b. January 1765, d. 1839
     Rev. Jacob Price was born in January 1765 at Washington Twp., Franklin Co., PA, Wanger lists Jacob Price before his brother John Price, gives "1765" as birth year for Jacob Price, and "Jan. 1765" for his brother John. It is possible they both were born within the same year, eleven or so months apart, it is also possible they were twins (and of course it is possible that one or both were born in a different year). Will list as twins born in January until better information is found. DLB 2008.1

He was the son of John Preisz and Mary Ann Steiner. Rev. Jacob Price married Susanna Baker, daughter of Peter Baker and Christina Miller, in 1788, The will of Peter Baker, probated 1804, states that he leaves 600 pounds to his daughters Susannah, Elizabeth, Catherine, and Molly (Mary). He nominates his son John and Jacob Price as executors. Susannah is listed in an August census in 1776 for Elizabeth Hundred (in MD) as a 7 yr old with Peter Baker and wife Christina.

This will and other information are in the "Genealogy of the Families ETNIER, ETNIRE, ETNYRE, ITNEYER, ITNYER, ITNYRE - DESCENDANTS OF JOHANNES EYDNE (?)ER" - also a reference to a few allied families, Baker, Rohrer, Smawley; Vol IX 1976 -1977, Mrs. Daniel Whitehead, Pennsylvania, Chairman Genealogical Records Committee. This book is at the DAR library in Washington, DC.

Rev. Jacob Price died in 1839 at Chambersburg, Franklin Co., PA, Jacob Price inherited from his father the land lying southwest of the church (Price's) near the "Nunnery." He seems to have conveyed his property by the following deeds and wills:

DEED. Jacob Price et Susanna ux to Jacob Price Jr., dated June 4, 1830, for the consideration of $10.00, 192 acres and 127 perches. vidi D.B. 15 page 124.

DEED. Jacob Price et Susanna ux to Jacob Price Jr., dated April 24, 1832. Consideration $6750 for 225 acres and 43 perches. D.B. 15 page 610.

Will of Jacob Price, dated May 28, 1832, probated Sept. 7, 1839, at Chambersburg, Pa. Son Jacob, Executor. Mentions that he has given deeds to his sons for his land. Gives his personal property to his sons in law and bequeaths to his wife Susanna the residue of his estate.

In a letter written to Jacob Price, son of Rev. Jacob and Susanna (Baker) Price, Abram H. Cassel said -- Elder John Price "had a son Jacob who was an exhorter among the Brethren. He was here (Indian Creek) on a visit about 1780. He preached a number of sermons among the Brethren and attended the wedding of his cousin William Price. He seems to have been a very dearly beloved brother, as he was kept in affectionate remembrance by all who knew him."2

He was buried in 1839 at a country cemetery, near Welty's Mill, Franklin Co., PA, or possibly Green Hill Cemetery, Waynesboro, per Memorial #129467619.
