was born in 1810. He was the son of Jacob "Buffalo Creek" Dellinger Sr.
and Fronica Mary Frances "Fanny" Wills
. He married Sarah Dellinger
at Lincoln Co., North Carolina
, on 4 October 1831. Jacob was separated from his wife, Sarah Dellinger
. In 1838, Jacob's brother Henry wrote to Jacob from Illinois asking Jacob to bring some things to Henry. So in 1838, Jacob was either living in or visiting in Lincoln Co., North Carolina and was moving to or returning to Illinois. He may have been in North Carolina only to settle his father's estate. The letter from Henry Dellinger is in the estate papers of his father Jacob Dellinger of Buffalo Creek, 1837 N.C. Archives. Jacob died in 1880 at Ottawa Co., Kansas
