Biography of J. C. Jacobi
Iowa County, IA Biographies





J. C. Jacobi operates three hundred and eighty acres of fine land and is one of the well to do farmers of Washington township. He was born in that township on the 6th of February, 1880, of the marriage of Joseph and Tracy (Frady) Jacobi, both natives of Germany. On emigrating to America they made their way immediately to Iowa, and later the father purchased land in this county. He has continued to follow agricultural pursuits ever since and has now reached the age of sixty seven years. His wife died in 1914 when sixty six years old. They were the parents of thirteen children, two of whom have passed away.

J. C. Jacobi gave his father the benefit of his labor until he was twenty four years of age and then began his independent career as an agriculturist. He operates three hundred and eighty acres of land and owns one hundred and fifteen acres in Iowa county. He feeds stock extensively, shipping to the Chicago markets, and as he is businesslike, progressive and industrious, his farm returns him a good income each year.

On the 21st of February, 1906, occurred the marriage of Mr. Jacobi and Miss Ethel Haines, a native of Benton county, and a daughter of Charles and Alice (Burch) Haines, the former of whom is living, but the latter passed away in 1900. Mrs. Jacobi has one sister, Mrs. Sadie Mayhew. Our subject and his wife have two children: Garold, who was born on the 4th of January, 1907; and Audrie, who was born February 5, 1912.

Mr. Jacobi is a republican and is stanch in his advocacy of the principles of that party. Both he and his wife are devout communicants of the Catholic church and their religious faith is a vital force in their lives. He ranks among the successful and alert young farmers of Washington township and has many friends who value highly his good opinion.
