Harvey S. Jaques was born Sept. 5, 1834, near Millville, Butler County, Ohio, here he spent his early childhood. He was the oldest of 12 children of Richard and Mary Jaques. Four brothers, John Louis, Daniel, and James and one sister Mrs. Ella Long survive him. His ancestors came from New Jersey.

At the age of 13 his family settled near Sharptown, Franklin County. Here he grew to man- hood and became one of the sturdy citizens of his community. He had the pleasure of sitting at the feet of Prof. Chase at Mt. Carmel and Brookville College. The inspirations and ideals of this man became a part of his life. He learned to believe in the curse of ignorance, in the efficacy of schools in the joy of serving others, in the beauty in home, in daily life and out of doors, in laughter, in love in faith, in all ideals and distant hopes that lure us on; that every hour of every day he received a just reward for all he was and all he did, in the present and its opportunities, in the future and its promises, and in the divine, joy of living.

For several years he taught school in Franklin County. Many of his students have become staunch citizens of the county. These will attest to the seriousness earnestness, uprightness, and his demand for orderly conduct. He chose for his life companion Martha Stout, the daughter of Ira and Eliza Stout. To them were born eight children. the two oldest John and Jenny died in infancy. His wife and the remaining children, Lyde, Bert, Rose, Edna, Lenore, Fred and ten grandchildren mourn his loss. In his home life he was a devoted, conscientious and ideal husband and father. His family’s welfare was his.

For forty-five years he conducted the store at Whitcomb. As a business man he was the symbol of honesty and fair dealings with all men. He lived the principle embodied in the Golden Rule. His life practically ended in the store for there the beginning of his final illness took place.

About forty years ago he united with the M E Church of Whitcomb. As a member of this church his services are well known.

As a citizen and neighbor he was respected and honored. A type of citizen that the community needs but cannot hope to retain. On May 17, 1912, after a short illness, his life ended at the age of 77 years, 8 months and 12 days. He could truly have said with Paul:- “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the father; henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

CARD OF THANKS.

We desire to thank our neighbors and friends for their many acts of kindness rendered and expressions of sympathy uttered in our recent bereavement

Mrs. H. S. Jaques and family.

In a previous post, Relationship Chart of Mark Blythe to Barack Obama, I posted the Stehle ancestry chart showing the connection between Barack Obama and my husband, through their common ancestor, Ulrich Stehle.
Stehle Ancestry: First Page of Gabriel Steely's Court Document
Stehle Ancestry: First Page of Gabriel Steely’s Court Document

Ulrich Stehle Sr. was my children’s eighth great-grandfather. He was born in Europe (presumably in Holland or Germany) in about 1699, married Anna (parents unknown) on September 21, 1732 at about the age of 33. He, Anna, and their three children emigrated from Rotterdam on the ship Pink Plaisance to Philadelphia, USA.

His children were all born prior to the family’s emigration to the USA and were Hans Peter Stehle (Steely), born about 1716; Anna Barbra Stehle (Steely), also born about 1716; and Ulrich Stehle (Steely) Jr., born about 1720 and dying in 1773.

Stehle Ancestry: Second Page of Gabriel Steely's Court Document
Stehle Ancestry: Second Page of Gabriel Steely’s Court Document

Ulrich Steely (Stehle) Jr., seventh great-grandfather to Erin and Stuart, also married an Anna, who was born about 1705 and died about 1793. Ulrich Jr. was born in Europe (some sources say in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, but according to the documented timeline, this is highly doubtful). He died in abt 1773 in Derry Township, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, USA.

Ulrich Jr.’s children were Sarah Steely (1755-1829), Jacob Steely (1756-1829), Christiana Steely (born 1759), Gabriel Steely (1763-1830), Lazarus Steely (1764-1808), Henry Steely (born 1765), and Mary Steely (1766-1835).

Sarah Steely, daughter of Ulrich Steely, Jr. died and was buried in 1829. Her headstone reads, “Sarah, wife of William Frampton, died July 6, 1829, aged seventy-four years.”

Gabriel Steely son of Ulrich Steely Jr., was sixth great-grandfather to my children and was born August 19, 1763 in Pennsylvania, USA. He is said to have died May 2, 1830 at about 66 years of age in Kingston, Ohio and was buried May 4, 1830 in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Kingston, Ross County, Ohio, USA.

One point of interest about Gabriel Steely is the fact that there are records regarding court proceedings in a suit he brought against Joshua Gay and Joshua Gay, Jr. over an unpaid debt (click on thumbnails below to see full documents).

Gabriel married Mary Meek (1767-1850), daughter of Capt. George Meek and Rachel Herron, before 1785. They had ten children: John (1785-1842), Sarah (1793-1860), Meek (1797-1865), George Ray (born about 1800), Reuben (Ruban) (born about 1802), Elizabeth (1811-1880), as well as David, William Wallace, Isabell and Sally, the latter four’s birth dates being unknown. Some records indicate that Mary’s surname at the time of her marriage was Stuart.  Could she have been previously married, or was there a second wife at sometime named Mary Stuart?

According to “Brief History of Pickaway County, Ohio”, Gabriel was among the earliest settlers, settling in Pickaway Township in 1807.
