Other Information: Jacob Troxell was born 2 October 1797 in Lancaster Pennsylvania. By 1810, he, along with his family, had relocated to Bear Creek, near Miamisburg, Montgomery, Ohio. It was there, on 28 December 1819 that he married Mary Catherine Rauk. There is conflict in where the couple resided. Some sources note that the first three children were born in Montgomery, Ohio, however, there is a family genealogy that stated they relocated to Indiana in 1822. It is more likely that the couple relocated in 1829 to the west fork of the White River near Waterloo, Fayette, Indiana where they were building a mill race. In 1830, the family is found in Fayette, Indiana. Jacob’s first wife died in 1841; he remarried and continued to live in Waterloo, Fayette, Indiana through his death on 6 April 1885.
