Jacob Stinebaugh, the Younger, was born in Pennsylvania (or Tennessee) on November 8, 1796. He married Nancy Cannon in Christian County, Kentucky on November 14, 1816. Their Marriage license is on record in book 1A, page 158 in County records at Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky. Jacob, Nancy Cannon, her parents, the James Cannons, and possibly Jacob's brother, John moved to Lincoln County, Missouri in 1817.
He was a man of means, and a financial factor in his community. He owned and operated a grist mill, driven alternately by water and horse power, a smithy, and a turner's shop besides a large and prosperous farm. His place was one of the busy commercial centers of the neighborhood. He manufactured all the spinning wheels and looms, and much of the furniture used in that section of Missouri. In some families his chairs, tables and quaint old-fashioned dressers are still treasured as family relic
He purchased his land from Henry Chouteau to whom it had been granted by United States Patent and a French Grant. When he left Lincoln County, Missouri, he sold the farm to Cyrus Thompson, who later deeded the land to Rachel Trail and relatives in 1860. (Book P, Page 525, Deed Records of Lincoln County Missouri].
About 1850 the Jacob Stinebaughs moved to Dallas County in central Missouri, but were scattered by the Civil War. Their homes were burned and the country devastated by historic Order No. 11. They and two of their children, Susan and John, returned to Lincoln County about 1860 and in 1866 or 1867 followed Granville to Nevada, Collin County, Texas. Jacob and Nancy are buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery (also known as the Abston Belew Cemetery) in Lavon, Collin County, Texas. (Submitted by Melva Cook) About 1880 Jacob and his sons moved from Nevada, Texas to Farmersville, Texas.
