Biography of Frank Jacobi
Iowa County, IA Biographies





Frank Jacobi, who is farming in Washington township, was born in Iowa county on the 19th of May, 1884, a son of Joseph and Tracy (Frady) Jacobi, both of whom were born in Germany. They were married in their native land and after emigrating to the United States first settled in Benton county, Iowa, but in 1895 removed to Washington township, this county, where the father is still living, although the mother passed away in 1914. They became the parents of thirteen children, Tracy, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Anna, Francis, Helen, John, Katherine, Frank and Rose, all living; Henry and William deceased.

Frank Jacobi received a good common school education and also learned much that has since been of great value to him through assisting his father with the work of the homestead. When he was twenty one years of age he began farming for himself and now operates two hundred acres of land on section 18, Washington township, which is one of the valuable farms of his locality, belonging to his father. He is prompt and energetic in the performance of his work and as his methods are practical it is but natural that he derives a gratifying income from his labors.

On the 18th of January, 1905, occurred the marriage of Mr. Jacobi and Miss Margaret Jacobs, who is a daughter of Lawrence and Catherine (Krantz) Jacobs. Her father, who was an agriculturist, passed away in 1888, but her mother is still living in Marengo. They were the parents of four children, Christine, John, Margaret and Mayme. Mr. and Mrs. Jacobi have three children: Franklyn, born March 4, 1906; Carroll, born August 28, 1908; and Loreine, whose birth occurred on the 12th of March, 1914.

Mr. Jacobi is an adherent of the republican party and takes a praiseworthy interest in all matters of public concern. Both he and his wile are communicants of the Roman Catholic church and do all in their power to further the moral advancement of their community. They are highly thought of and have many loyal friends, their personal characteristics being such as always win respect and esteem.
