Records in JRI-Poland track the movement of the family; these records give the dates of birth of the children, identify Jacob's father and give his wife's maiden name.
In January 1835 Jacob, widower, son of Mayer, arrived in Kieferstaedtel from Drathammer (Lublinitz), and was registered along with children Babette, Joachim (in Klein-Anniesc (Gross Strehlitz) with his brother Jonas), Simon (in school at Gleiwitz), Moses and Eva.
In July 1836 son of Mayer and now married to his second wife Rosel Berger, left Kieferstaedtel bound for Tychau with children Babette, Joachim, Simon, Moses, Eva, Mayer. A note before Mayer's entry names the mother of the first five children as Jacob's first wife, Eva geb. Levy. It is likely that Eva's death was associated with the birth of her last child, named Eva in her memory. The family's arrival in Tychau from Tost in 1836 is recorded in the Pless family register, with a note recording their departure for Kieferstaedtel in February 1840.
In February 1840 Jacob, son of Mayer and his wife Rosel Berger, arrived in Kieferstaedtel from Tychau and registered with children Babette (in service), Joachim, Simon, Moses, Eva, Mayer and Kiwe.
In October 1840 Jacob, son of Mayer and his wife Rosel Berger, left Kieferstaedtel bound for Ratibor with children Eva, Mayer, Kiwe and Samuel. Of their previously registered children, Babette had moved to Zaledzie (Beuthen), Joachim was learning the art of weaving and remained in Kieferstaedtel, Simon had moved to Schwientochlowitz (Beuthen) and Moses was in school and remained in Kieferstaedtel.
Jacob was alive when son Joachim married in 1855: the record names both of Joachim's parents and notes only that his mother was dead. Howeverm when Joachim re-married in 1859 both of his parents were dead. Therefore Jacob died in 1857 +/-2 years.
