Jacob Singer Jr

Home Up

This picture of Jacob Singer, Jr. is believed to have been taken c. 1870-1875.  Jacob was the son of Franz Jacob and Magdelena (Zwick) Singer.  Jacob has nearly 200 known descendants.   Portions of Jacob's jacket have been retouched in the photo below.  


A handwritten note on the back of the tintype photo says "Jacob Singer III."  (Although Jacob's grandfather was named Franz George Singer, some sources suggest that he went by the name Jacob.)  Photo provided by Jacob's great-great granddaughter, Tracie Singer Dunn, of Paris, KY.
