About Jacob Sandusky

Jacob Sandusky, proprietor of one of the most popular and well known restaurants in Erie, located at I521 Holland street, was born in Erie, Pa., February 11 1841. He is a son of John Sandusky, a native of Poland, who settled in Erie, in 1838. John Sandusky was compelled to leave his native country to avoid arrest, on account of having taken part in a rebellion against the government. He went to Germany and served awhile in the German army and from there emigrated to America. In the family there were four children, of whom Jacob is the second. He was reared in the city of Erie and educated in the public schools and in 1851 began life for himself as a hotel clerk. This occupation he followed about six years, then he clerked in a grocery store for several years and in 1861 entered the employ of Charles Koehler, remaining until 1864, when he engaged in the restaurant business for himself, but retired at the end of two years to accept an appointment on the police force, where he served for seventeen years. During his period of service Mr. Sandusky was one of the most earless and efficient officers in the city. In 1883 he engaged in his resent business and now commands a first class trade. He was married March 30 1862, to Miss Sarah, daughter of Philip Dippo, of Erie. They have four children: Louis C. (deceased), John C., William H. and Maggie. He is a member of the I.O.O.F., the A.O.U.W. and the B.P.O.E. The family are members of the Lutheran Church. Mr. Sandusky is a Republican.
