Information on Jacob Stalnaker

From "The Stalnaker Family", written by Knight Wees, published in the Randolph Enterprise, Thursday, August 25th, 1932:

Jacob Stalnaker’s birth is unknown, as is that of his wife Elizabeth. He had sons Jacob, Valentine, Adam, Samuel, John, Boston, Levi, and Andrew. Andrew was the only son mentioned in his will, the others having been provided for and we have no way of knowing the order of birth.
Jacob Stalnaker, Sr. , built his home on the hill in Beverly, later owned by his great grandson, Daniel Baker, and still known as the Baker home. The house was built of logs taken from the old Westfall fort on the river-bank, but the building has been destroyed and not even a picture remains.
The will of Jacob Stalnaker, Sr., dated April 25, 1791, proven August; 1792, names wife, Elizabeth and son, Andrew and Executor, Mathew, Whitman. Test: John Wilson, John Elliott, Edward Jackson, Abraham Claypool. [Will Book 1, Page 8, Randolph County Court].
