166. Jacob8 GARN (George7 CARN, Frederick6 GARN, Johannes5 GERN, Johann Adam4 GERN, Johannes3 GERN, David2 GERN, Johannes1 GERN) was born on 20 Apr 1822 in Union Twp., Bedford Co., Pennsylvania, USA. He died on 21 Aug 1879 in Scott Twp., Sandusky Co., Ohio, USA.
He was married to Catharine
KLOTZ on 6 Oct 1846 in Sandusky Co., Ohio, USA. Catharine
KLOTZ was born on 27 Aug 1823. She died on 11 Sep 1891 in Scott Twp., Sandusky
Co., Ohio, USA, most likely. McBride and Capener place Jacob's wife as the daughter
of David Klotz and Elizabeth Garn and report that Catharine was born in 1831.
We question this report. Catharine, the daughter of David Klotz and Elizabeth
Garn would have been only 13 years old when married if actually born in 1831.
But Catharine, the wife of Jacob Garn, was born in 1823, a date consistent with
censuses on which she appeared and with her grave marker. And if the Catharine
who married Jacob was the daughter of David Klotz and Elizabeth Garn, then she
should have appeared as their second child, born 16 months after the child currently
listed as their first and 14 months before the child currently listed as their
second child. We have not resolved these questions and therefore are reluctant
to place Jacob' s wife as the daughter of David Klotz and Elizabeth Garn.
