     Johann Jacob Holben was born on 23 February 1748 at Pennsylvania, USA. He Jacob was 32 when the War for American Independence began. In 1778 his name along with Theobald, Wendel, and Lorentz appear as privates on the general muster roll of the 3rd Company, 3rd Battalion of Northampton County Militia under Captain Christian Marburger. Jacob's name appears again, along with Lorentz's in 1780 and again in 1782 on the rolls of the 3rd Company, 6th Battalion under command of Lt. Colonel Henry Geiger. Local militia units by law included all able-bodied men between the ages of 16 and 50. The term of active duty for a militia unit, as opposed to the regular Army, was for two months at a time and usually occurred on an annual or less frequent basis. in between the two month militia tours, the citizen soldiers returned home to maintain their farms and businesses. In 1804 , the Lynn Twp., Northampton County, Holbens moved to Northumberland County, Upper Mahanoy Twp., 50 miles to the West. Among them were Jacob II, his wife, Catherine, and their children, John, Peter, Daniel, and at least one daughter, Susanna, and the newlywed, Jacob III.

On February 6, 1804 Jacob Holben prepared a document deeding the Lynn Twp. farm to his sons Jacob II, the oldest, and Christian, the youngest. The deed was finally recorded at Northumberland County 16 years later (August 12, 1820) and reads inpart: ...I, Jacob Holben, Senior in Lynn Twp., Northampton County, for and in consideration of the sum of nine hundred pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania and for the hereafter mentioned yearly dower for me and for my wife, my plantation of about 160 acres, with one wagon and belongings to have sold to my two sons named Christian and Jacob.....I expect for me and my wife the right in the lower storeroom and in the loft and in the cellar and in the kitchen.... my voice in the place. But if they could not agree with one another around the place, Christian was required to furnish Jacob with one dwelling house. There were further conditions:...... they give, each of my two sons, ten bushels of rye, two bushels of wheat, five of buckwheat, one of corn, one hog of one hundred pounds......, one bushel salt, one quarter pound pepper...., Jacob, every month, one dozen eggs, Each, five pound coffee, quart size molasses, and Jacob one half hundred cabbages and Christian one third part in the garden. Christian must give four gallons of whiskey, two barrels of good syder, and apples asmuch as we can use in the house...., two cows in the pasture....., fire wood as much as we want to use to fetch home and chop small and the grain to the mill and to fetch home..... Further shall said two sons maintain us when we are in need.....

In 1804 Christian remained on the homestead and Jacob II (Christian's Dad), his wife,Jacob III, 22 year old John, and Peter went west to Northumberland County. For the first year the entire family lived under the oldest son's roof, where old Jacob II would spend his last days. Within three years John married a Northumberland girl named Susan. They purchased a section of land in Upper Mahanoy Twp. from Mathias and Elizabeth Harter on November 24, 1807. They moved out from under Jacob's roof and had thirteen children.1 He was a farmer circa 1770.1 He died in 1820.
