Jacob Lias    

JACOB LIAS. The man whose name heads this sketch was born in Huntingdon county, Pennsylvania, May 27, 1811, where he spent his youth. In the spring of 1831, his mother having died, he came with his father to Wayne township, Armstrong county. In the fall of the following year, October 4, 1832, he married Miss Susanah Schrecengost, a native of the township, born June 22, 1814, and daughter of Martin and Christiana Schrecengost, who were very early settlers. Eleven children were born of this union, eight of whom are living— James W., Eliza Ann, Asbey M., Elzada C., Leander E., Cyrus B., Mary C. and Laura C. Those deceased are Sarah Jane, McKindra C. and Curtis E. Soon after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Lias settled in the old home farm which belonged to Mr. Lias’ father, and there they lived for fifteen years. Then they removed to the farm in the northern part of Cowanshannock township, where they now reside. This farm purchased by Mr. Lias consists of 237 acres of land. His grandparents on both sides of the house and also his wife’s were of German birth or extraction and had followed farming. Mr. Elias’ name has been by common usage abbreviated to Lias, and an uncle of his, John Elias, was so called before him.
