  • Notes 
    • The 1925 Iowa State Census shows the Jacobs family, consisting of John J., 35; his wife Gertrude, 33; and children: Mary Louise, 6; John Joseph, 3; and Margaret M, 1. 1925 Iowa State Census, Iowa State Historical Society; via Iowa State Census Collection, 1836-1925, www.Ancestry.com (accessed Mar 2009). The Ancestry.com extract asserts that Gertrude's father was Francis N. Seabrook and that her mother was Mary L. "Duffeck," born about 1865 in Iowa. The extract further indicates that her spouse was John J. Jacobs. The extract also says that a "marriage place" was Minnesota, but it is not clear whether that applies to Gertrude and John, or to Gertrude's parents.
