  • Notes:
    Jacob came from Richland Co., Ohio to Illinois; supposedly around 1850 or 1860.
     
    Jacob Garver's tombstone was found in the King Cemetery off Route 4 near Ava, Jackson County, Illinois just a few miles before you get to the Gale Garver homestead.
    This was told to me that this was the plot where Jacob Garver was buried
    according to the caretaker of the cemetery years ago before the family
    purchased a tombstone for him; ( I believe between 1950 or later. )
    To find out more about this tombstone, you can contact the Garvers of Ava, Ill.
