A LIST OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JACOB C. WIREBACH (4)



BORN 1808 DIED 1877



The first ancestor of Jacob C. Wlrebach (4) of which we can

find any record was

JOHN NICHOLAS WIREBACH (1)

who was born in County Hesse, Germany about the year 1710. About the year 1752, when he was 42 years of age_, he left Rotterdam, Holland, with his wife Chrisanne and his 21 year old son, Isaac, and arrived at the Port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The family settled in the County of Bucks where they operated a farm.

ISAAC WIREBACH (2)

the son of John Nicholas Wlrebach (1) was born in Germany, April

10, 1730 and died in Springfield Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, March 11, 1805. Isaac married Anna Frey and the couple purchased a farm from Cornelius Raisley, who received a grant from William Penn. David H. Miller (7) an Easton Attorney, has in his possession a copy of the will of Isaac Wirebach (2) which was probated April 3, 1805, and recorded in Will Book No.7, page 110, Register of Wills Office of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This will refers to Isaac as a yeoman owning a plantation and bequeathing monetary legacies in pounds and shillings, and that his wife’s name was Anna. Some of the descendants now living remember an old family story that Isaac was not too popular with his neighbors because he kept a number of slaves. The will gives the names of the following children: Henry Wirebach (3) - Peter Wirebach (3) - Jacob Wirebach (3) - Isaac Wirebach (3) Elizabeth Wirebach (3) - (later intermarried with Michael Smell) and Margaret Wirebach (3) (later intermarried with Henry Herpst).

JACOB C. WIREBACH (4)



Jacob C. Wirebach (4) was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on June 8,1808 and died in Easton, Pennsylvania, May 3, 1877. He married Catherine Short a daughter of George and Salome Romfield Short. (The name was Choate or Shoatt, and later became Short). The story is told of Salome Romfield being an attractive and active girl who eloped with George Short to Easton, using her father's horse "Star". They were married in the First Reformed Church on North Third Street. Her father, who was in the Court House, which was then located in Center Square, looking out of the window said "If I did not know that my horse, "Star" was at home in the barn I'd swear that he was drawing that carriage up Third Street". He was right, it was his daughter Salome, and George Short. George Short was a native of Virginia, and later moved to Montgomery County, where their daughter Catherine Short was born May 3, 1807, and died in Easton, Pennsylvania October 8, 1879. Jacob C. Wirebach was a member of the German Reformed Church that used the church that is now in Hayes Cemetery. When the St. Peters Reformed Church was chartered November 15, 1862 he was appointed on the first Board of Deacons. It was in the year 1835 that he and his family of three children settled on a farm on Morgan's Hill South of Easton. In 1837 he purchased about 100 acres of land from the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company at a cost of 10,000 dollars. This included that part of South Side, Easton

that lies West of Coal Street, East of McKeen Street and North of Line Street. This he cut up into building lots and sold then on easy terms. Many of the men working in the shops of the Lehigh Valley Railroad were able to purchase these lots and build their own homes. Many of the descendants of these men are still living

in some of these homes. He was a man of honor and integrity and his motto was taken from Prov. 30; 8, Give me neither poverty or riches. At his death he left each of his children a home on a good sized plot of ground and a number of smaller homes. There were nine children born to Catherine and Jacob C. Wirebach.
