These children are identified from the deeds cited above for the sale of Jacob's land to Jeremiah Kyle after his death in Virginia. Because these children are scattered among Dauphin Co., PA, Lancaster Co., PA, and Rockingham Co., VA, histories often do not name all six. Two that do are (9,12).

All 13 of them, except Catharine, are named in the land deeds for the sale of Jacob's land after his death. At 17, Catharine is still a minor, and the deed (4) is signed by her guardian Henry Rhodes (13), husband of her sister Elizabeth.
