About Jacob Welker

Birth: May 27, 1856, Willard, Box Elder County, Utah, USA

Death: May 1, 1860, Willard, Box Elder County, Utah, USA

Burial: Willard Pioneer Cemetery, Willard, Box Elder County, Utah, USA, Plot: unidentified-no stone

Son and first child of Harriet Angeline Lish and Jacob Stoker Welker.

His father was from Jackson County, Ohio and his mother from Steuben County, New York. Both families had migrated west for religious freedom. They had settled at Willard and in February of 1855, Jacob and Harriet were married.

About three years after the death of little Jacob, the family moved to Bloomington, Bear Lake, Idaho, where they settled and raised 12 more children, all living to maturity except for one little girl, Rachel Melvina. At this date, there is no gravestone to mark his burial.

Official Records for this cemetery have never surfaced. Because of pioneer circumstances, time elements and the flood of 1923, only 7 stones of some 150 burials remain.
