    On the 1920 census, his son, Alonzo, said his father was born at sea.

    In 1840 there was Jacob Momen (age 20-30) living alone in Beaver twp., Columbiana Co, Ohio (probably was him).

    In 1849 or 1850 he purchased 40 acres in Jo Daviess Co. IL

    His first child, Almira was born in Illinois in Jan. 1849, so they must have moved there by then.

    In 1860 his brother-in-law, Francis John Lindesmith, wrote a letter from IL to John Downs, another brother-in-law in Carroll Co, Ohio, in which he said they hadn't heard from Jacob. "I can't get any news from Jacob Momenteller any more. I do not know what is the reason, I have wrote the last to him and had no answer yet." [Surely they knew he had moved to Jo Daviess Co, IL.]
