Jacob Ephraim’s first wife was Hannah Middleton. He was reported to be a “fine specimen of the old Kentucky gentlemen was very popular in Shelby County

They had 3 children:

In a June 1888 newspaper an article was published regarding the largest family reunion to celebrate Jacob's 80th Birthday, I have a copy of the article and a copy of Jacob's family history he wrote for the article at age 80. If anyone is interested please email me

I'd love to see the old newspaper article for Jacob Sandusky's birthday--and especially the family history he wrote for it.
