Is this the same Jacob Clarke

Death: 1864 in Concecon, Prince Edward Co
_UID: FA1BF7B3B029429DAD66E3E67DFCF7A66968

He received a land grant for fighting in the militia during the war of 1812.
Ontario Land Abstract Archives of Ontario has a
Jacob CLARKE - Prince Edward County - Date ( nd - no date) FG - =Free Grant Military RG 01 C13 090 Page 070

He appears on the 1861 census as living on Con #4 Lot101 in Hillier Twp Prince Edward Co./Hillier Twp/Dist #3/ page 3 /line 2

There is some uncertainity about his ethnic background it appears that some of his children called themselves Dutch , German and English ? And there are conflicting family stories that state the Clarkes were Irish possible because the second wife of James was an Irish catholic.

While John White's Grandmother recalled that Jacob's wife spoke German and very little English?? At this time it appears that they were of Palantine German origins.
The theory is that Elizabeth Young had an Uncle (UEL) that was named James ??
There is an entry in Archives of Ontario GS Reel #5162 for Hillier Twp. Abstracts memorial # (?) 420 Book 3 James Young grantor - Gidean B. White grantee ??
Could this be the White - Young connection ??

Also during a visit to Patsy Clark - summer 1996 she stated that an old map of the Concecon / Ameliasburgh area did not show Jacob and the he was not the original of owner of his land. I believe that it may have been escheated or lost due to lack of work by the original grantee. He apparently does show up on 1856 map of the area.

2nd Regiment Prince Edward county , Ontario Militia 1822
The Regiment was under the command of Lt. Col Owen Richards, which was dated at Hallowell, Ontario May 15,1822. It is preserved in the Public Archives of Canada at Ottawa The numbers beside each name is their age at time of service. There are 409 men in this muster roll. Question marks mean "may be spelling error".
Many of these men were United Empire Loyalists who fought in the American Revolutionary War. They served in this Regiment along side their sons, brothers and cousins. Note: Harmonius Wanamaker Sr. is my first ancestor to Upper Canada. Many of these surnames are in my family tree. Further Note: This Muster is kind of like a census as well, recording all elligable men of fighting age in that area.

there are three entries for" lot # 101 Township Of Hillier Fifth Concession Bay Side" for Jacob Clark . #of instrument 504, The Grantor being Dr. James Latham the Grantee being Jacob Clark , dated 24 November 1814 . Quantity of land 100 acres and it appears to be west half. Also there is no amount listed for consideration or amount of mortgage, which would make sense if it were a military grant. In the column listed as instrument is the word " Bond " , I am not sure what this means. The second entry is for #of instrument 546, 100 a, 1/2 Grantor James Latham Grantee Jacob Clark dated 12 June 1818,also no amount listed. in the instrument column is " B&S ". The last entry is instrument #1494 instrument "WILL" registered 14 March 1865.Grantor Jacob Clark,. Grantee "HE IS OURS IN CHRIST".
