Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Jacob VAN GUNDY

Residences & events:

6/14/1870 Washington Twp, Wood Co, OH. That year at census time Jacob was 50, occupation of farmer, with property valued at $3500/7500 (Wonder why he had so much more personal property than real estate?) Isabelle was 49 and they had a large family: David, 26, Anna Belle, 23, Sarah N, 20, Martha J, 15, Laura I, 10, and Annie, 7. Charles Bowers, 6, also lived there. Charles was probably a relative through Jacob's mother that they were raising.

6/16/1880 Dist 103, Washington Twp, Wood Co, OH. The census recorded Jacob at age 59, a farmer, wife Isabelle at 58 and daughter Anna at 17. Charles Bowers, 17, was still with them as a hired hand and farm worker. Several other Gundys lived in the same township.
