"According to family documents,Jacob was the son of Fredrick Leffler who arrived
in the US in 1837 from the middle Rhine region of Germany - Jacob was 14 at the time. If this is the same Jacob - I can ask my parents if they have any further documents or if there is info in the family bible to confirm John as a son. My Great Grandmother was Sarah and I believe her father was Jacob. She was born in 1876."
Many who have listed this family have the father listed as Jacob (b. 1715 in Switzerland), not Fredrick Leffler. I have yet to find anyone who has sourced that information. Does anyone have a source for either Jacob, Fredrick, or can help me with this? I appreciate any help!
Thanks so much!
