|Jan 27,1768, Jacob Hubler, 100 acres adjoining his other land|
Johann Jakob Hubler died on May 7, 1789 at Jacobsburg, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, at the age of 77. He was buried in an unmarked grave on the Jacobsburg farm. His estate was probated on May 9 of that year. He left all the legacies he was to receive from the estate of his father, Hans Jacob Hoobler in Switzerland to his son, Jacob. Son Frederick received 100 pounds. His son-in-law, Michael Glass, who was married to daughter Christina, received 50 pounds. To granddaughter Magdelena Hollman, he bequeathed 25 pounds and to his son-in-law, Christian Hollman, 100 pounds. His sons, Abraham and Isaac, were given the land in Plainfield township known as Jacobsburg.
So, where do we fit into this family tree? Christina Hubler married Michael Glass and they had a daughter Elizabeth who married Michael Diehl. Their daughter Catherine married Frederick Immick and had a son named Aaron who married Catherine Morey. Their daughter Sarah E. Immick married Samuel Frey. Sam and Sarah had a son named Isaac Lantz Frey who married Mary Alice Fangboner. And that brings us right to Edna Frey, our dear Gram Good.
