2. Jacob Linderman OSMUN (John) born, contrary to history in Genoa, Cayuga Co.*, NY (c) 

7 December 1793 and bapt. Hopewell Pres. Ch. Thompson Ridge, Orange Co. NY 15 June 1794 and 

married ca 1814, Sally, pro. d/o Benoni INGLEY.  She was born in Otsego Co.*, NY (c) 

13 April 1792 (ed note: Benoni alias for Benjamin * 1850 FC Census LDS 186,428/9 Orange Co. NY)



A prominent man in Lansing, he was a farmer, veterinary surgeon, county politician, a democrat, 

spoke fluent german and in later years he turned his hand to lumbering along with his son Ira.  

(all the family were active in politics up to our children's generation and were taught from 

the beginning that voting was the inherit right of all the people in America and to vote was 

a privilege you had to vote for the man or woman of your own choice.)



On the 12th of October 1835 he received a patent for 160 acres of land in Oakland County, 

Michigan Town 3 North Range 9 East Section 2 of Waterford Township, but it is thought that he 

never came here since he neither appears as an absent taxpayer nor paid taxes or appeared in 

the 1845 census. The land was probably bought in his name and farmed by his brothers.  The 

land records for this property has not been researched by this author.  His worth in 1850 

shows personal property at $4800 (FC Lansing pg 192r 28 Sept 1850).



Jacob died in Lansing 13 June 1857 age 63yrs 6mo 6da and Sally died there 13 February 1862 

age 69yrs 10mo.  They are both buried in the North Lansing Cemetery. (ts)
