    • ** Looking for names of Jacob's parents and additional siblings. Jacob was part of a "large family," per his obit, and was survived by a brother Daniel. Daniel Books and children of David Books attended his wife's funeral, so assume they are siblings. Obituary states Jacob was from Halifax, but 1810 and 1820 census records don't include likely Books parents in Halifax; more likely they lived in Lower Swatara area.
