Jacob Fetterman
August 15, 1784 - April 26, 1865

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Congregation Cemetery, Old Zionsville, Lehigh County, PA

Jacob Fetterman

Jacob was the son of Sarah Danehower and Johan Philip Fetterman. He owned and worked a farm in Upper Milford Township, Lehigh County, PA. He was married twice. Around 1807 or 1808, he was married to Kate Klein with whom he had Jonathan and Sallie. I have found no information as regards his wife Kate, and she is not buried in this cemetery.

His second marriage was to Sybilla Frantz. They had the following children: Elizabeth who married Jacob Moll of Siesholtzville; Levi; Lovina who married Jonathan Andrews; and Noah.

Had I not had the Burial Records of the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Congregation listing his dates of birth and death, I would not have been able to identify this headstone, because the stone is written in German and it was difficult to read.
