((*)) Note Jacob and Jacobus could be two different men. We find Jacob Wanamaker in the musters of the New Jersey Volunteers and we find Jacobus Wannamaker in the musters of the King's Orange Rangers. Did Johannis Wanamaker die during the American Revolutionary War or was he alive and well in Upper Canada name of John Wanamaker? Stay tuned for these and other mysteries to be solved!
