Genealogy of Jacob Stoneburner

On 23 September 1752 Jacob and Martin Stoneburner, possibly brothers, came to America on board the ship St. Andrew from Rotterdam to Philadelphia. Both of them were over the age of 16. Jacob early moved to Berks County, Pennsylvania where in 1767 he owned thirty acres, had one horse, one cow, two sheep. It was probably there that he married Anna Eva sometime before August 1758. Johann Adam Eva had come from Rotterdam to Philadelphia, 20 October 1754 on the ship Halifax. This Eva was possibly related to the Anna who married Jacob Stoneburner. There in Berks County, Jacob and Anna became members of the St. Joseph’s Union Church at Oley Hill which is east of present day Reading, Pennsylvania. By 1782 Jacob and his two older sons were residents of Loudoun County, Virginia, according to an early tax list. In Virginia Jacob and Anna became members of the New Jerusalem Lutheran Church at Lovettsville. However, the Shelburne Parish in Loudoun County, Virginia showed Jacob Stoneburner on the tax table list of 1771. Both Jacob and Anna are buried in the New Jerusalem Lutheran Church Cemetery. 101 Jacob Stoneburner, born 8 March 1729 Germany married before 1758 Anna Eva, Berks County, Pa. born circa 1731 died 10 Jan. 1796 Loudoun Co., Va. died 24 May 1796 Loudoun Co., Va.
