From "History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky", ed. by William Henry Perrin, O. L. Baskin & County, Chicago, 1882, p. 563:

JAS. S. JACOBY, farmer, P. 0. Hutchinson; was born Aug. 25, 1815, in the house where he now resides, and is the son of Jacob and Mary (Stark) Jacoby. The grandfather of our subject, Francis Jacoby, was born in Germany, and started for America in 1764, and upon the same vessel was a maiden named Frederina Lotspirg, also of German birth. The young emigrants falling in love, were married in England, where their vessel touched, and they then proceeded on their journey to the colonies, settling in Virginia, remaining there till [sic] 1785, when they moved to Kentucky, with their family, including a son, Jacob, the father of our subject, who was born in 1779. They lived for a while in a cabin in the then wilderness of Kentucky, and in 1791 built the house in which James S. now lives. The grandfather left a family of twelve children, Jacob being the youngest save two, and only eight years old at the time of his fathers death, which occurred in 1789. Jacob died Jan. 28, 1843, his wife having passed away March 24, 1829. Mr. Jacoby, our subject, has resided where he now does, with the exception of short periods at Georgetown and Maysville, his entire life. He was married Jan. 7, 1836, to Miss Mary Headington, of Lexington, who died without leaving issue, when he married Oct. 11, 1849, Miss Agnes M. Kenney, by whom he has had the following children: W.B. born Aug. 27,1850, died July 11, 1876; Jacob W., born March 16,1853; James L., born Nov. 11, 1854; John born Jan. 15, 1857; Ann Mary, born Feb. 6, 1859; M. R., born Feb. 18, 1861. Mr. Jacoby owns 358 acres of land five and one-half miles from Pads, and has served for many years as a Justice of the Peace; also, as School Trustee for about twelve years. Is a member of the M. E. Church South, of Lexington, and has served as Stewart of the same for many years.
