James E. Jacobs was born in April 1876 in Illinois.
He married Sarah Della Yates on July 9, 1893 in Pope County, Illinois. They added 9 children to their family.
According to the 1910 Census the family lived in Alexander, Pope County, Illinois. By 1920 the family had moved to Eddyville.
In 1920 James and Sarah were divorced.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rough Draft ~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have reason to believe that he re-married his sister-in-law by marriage Cora Yates. I need to find documents that prove that this Cora was married first to Samuel Yates.
He might have lived in Carrier Mills, Saline County, Illinois in the 1930's.
