Jacob Gaiser Next

1831 Aug 14: Born in Wannweil in the Kingdom of Württemberg to Jacob & Judith Gaiser. (13,5)

?? When was Jacob born? Family sources (1 p247) and (2 p101) give his birth date as August 14, 1839. However, church records from Wannweil and US Census records for 1870, 1880, and 1900 imply a birth year of 1831. Written by hand, "1" and "9" easily can be confused. -- dg 2012 Aug 25
