Descendant of J.A.M. Johann Jacob Mühlschlägel
b. circa 24 February 1767, d. before 1850
Last Edited=13 Jun 2004

     Johann Jacob Mühlschlägel was born circa 24 February 1767 at Peters Church in Berks County, Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of Johann Andreas Mühlschlägel and Anna Maria Emmitt.1 He went by the name Jacob.2 Here is part of his father's diary translated from German: "24 February 1767 my son is born to the world, his godfather and godmother were both single, namely Jacob Emert and Balzerichman's daughter of the name Maria Ablonia, they gave the child the name Johann Jacob."1 The 1790 census records for Virginia have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found.
          Johann married Elizabeth Cooper circa 1795.3 Johann and Elizabeth had 11 children, five sons and six daughters. These children are Hannah, Andrew, Samuel, Elias, Julia Ann, Edith Ann, Eva Ann, Arianne, Jacob, Abraham and Mary Ann.4
          Jacob acquired 150 acres from the State of Virginia in 1800 in Timber Ridge, Hampshire County, Virginia. The land was originally granted to Lord Fairfax but it was confiscated at the end of the Revolution.3 The 1800 census records for Virginia have been lost. Other sources for residence information will need to be found. Read a description of Jacob and Elizabeth's house written by Grace Kelso Garner.3 Click to view text
          His parents deed him land for 470 pounds on 20 November 1809 in Hampshire County, Virginia.5,6 Andrew and Mary Millslagle's land purchase of 10 Oct 1809
          Jacob was enumerated on the 1810 census for Hampshire Co as Jacob Milslagle, aged between 26 and 44 years old. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household: Elizabeth, his wife, aged between 26 and 44; Andrew, Samuel and Elias, aged newborn to ten years old; Hannah, aged ten to fifteen years old. I have not been able to identify these people that were also enumerated with him: two females under 10; and one female between 16 and 26. Enumerated next to him is John Loy, aged 26 thru 44.7 Follow the link to see the census image. 1810 U.S. Census, Hampshire County, Virginia, page #761
          Jacob was enumerated on the 1820 census for Hampshire Co as Jacob Milsslagle, male aged over 45. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household: Elizabeth, his wife aged over 45; Jacob, Eva Ann, Arianne and Abraham, aged newborn to ten years old; Rebecca and Elias, aged ten to sixteen years old; Edith, Andrew, Samuel and Hannah, aged sixteen to twenty-six years old.8 Follow the link to see the census image.8 Jacob Milslagel, 1820 U.S. Census, Hampshire County, Virginia, page 279, line #1
          Johann Jacob purchased 225 acres adjoining the Millslagle farm from Henry and John Baker for 125 bushels of wheat. According to Grace Kelso Garner in Earliest Settlers of Western Frederick-Eastern Hampshire Counties "Jacob made other purchases as well, and in the period 1850 to 1855 when eight of the heirs of Jacob sold their interests to the remaining two sons and heirs the acreage involved was 834 acres 'be the same more or less.4'"
          Jacob was enumerated on the 1830 census for Sandy Ridge, Hampshire County, Virginia as Jacob Milslagle, aged between 60 and 70 years old. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household: Elizabeth, his wife, aged between 50 and 60 years old; Abraham and Jacob, aged ten to fifteen years old; Rebecca, aged fifteen to twenty years old; Andrew, Edith and Elias, aged twenty to thirty years old. I have not been able to identify these people that were also enumerated with him: one male aged 10-15 years old; one female aged 15-20 years old.9 Follow the link to see the census image. 1830 U.S. Census, Hampshire County, Virginia, page 41
          Jacob was enumerated on the 1840 census for Sandy Ridge as Jacob Milslagle, male between 70 and 80 years old. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household: Elizabeth, his wife, aged between 60 and 70 years old; Mary and Julia, aged ten to fifteen years old; Jacob, Abraham, Arianne and Eva Ann, aged twenty to thirty years old. I have not been able to identify these people that were also enumerated with him: one male aged between 20 and 30 years old; and one male aged between 15 and 20 years old. Only one of his daughters (Mary Ann or Julia) are still at home. I'm not sure which daughter is still there.10 Follow the link to see the census image.

          Jacob died before 1850.11 There appears to have been a problem dividing Jacob's (Senior) estate.12 Millslagle-Jacob, 1858 Estate He is the son of Johann Andreas Mühlschlägel, original immigrant.

At first I thought these dates were baptizism dates but in his last entry he writes "born to the world and then prepared for holy baptism" which made me think his entries were birth dates.
