RETURN TO OUR FLEMING FAMILY TREE
Captain Jacob Fleming (1750-1818) from FindaGrave.com
Jacob Fleming was born November 1750 in Shrewsbury, New Jersey (Monmouth County)(Manasquan Borough), son of Joseph Fleming and Christian (maiden name not yet known).
In about 1773, Jacob married Sarah ‘Sythe’ West, who was born May 25, 1750 in Shrewsbury, New Jersey (Monmouth County)(Manasquan Borough), daughter of James West and Ann Wing.
Jacob and Sarah had six children: James Fleming, Stephen West Fleman, Jacob Fleming, Sarah Fleman, John West Fleman, and Joseph Fleman.
Jacob fought in the Revolutionary War and is listed in the records of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) under Patriot number A040619.
Jacob died November 29, 1818 in Dover, Monmouth Co., NJ, and is buried in Christ Churchyard, Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co. Sarah was provided for in Jacob’s will.
A very old family Flemons Bible now in my possession suggests that Jacob and Sythe were both buried in Christ Churchyard in Shrewsbury. I am relying on this information until and unless I find information to the contrary.
