Jacob H./K. Hacker was born 26 Aug 1838 in Pennsylvania, most likely Lancaster County, and died 16 Feb 1906. He was buried in Bowman’s Cemetery in Ephrata, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania[1] Jacob was a farmer.

About 1870, Jacob married Sarah M./A. (___). She was born 6 Feb 1849 and died 26 Jul 1921. She too was buried in Bowman’s Cemetery.[2]

The couple had seven children, six of whom were still living in 1900:

  7. Lottie Hacker was born 27 Aug 1892 and died 11 Nov 1895. She was buried in Bowman’s Cemetery with her parents.

I am looking for information on this family so that I can determine whether or not they fit into my Hacker/Hocker family .
