    Originally Brothers lived At Brock's Gap, a mountain pass, about 20 miles west of Lithia Springs from about 1750 to1763. In 1764 his Father-in-law Adam Miller offered him 280 acres and 200 pounds on the condition that he would be allowed to spend the rest of his life at "the new house now a building on said plantation", and that Jacob was to keep his in-laws supplied with two cows, a horse, meet, barley, wheat, and 33 gals. of whiskey. Jacob then moved to Lithia Springs. The springs are now know as Bear Lithia Springs, they are about 2 mi. north of Elkton, Va. Jacob was a Lt. in the Militia during Revolution, recorded Feb. 23, 1780. He and brother John married sisters Ann and Elizibath Miller. Spelled Bare and Baer was called "Whiskey" because he kept his father in law warm with whiskey.
