Jacob Allemong, m. Elizabeth Barbara Hunsicker
Jacob Allemong, son of the immigrant Jacob Allemong and Anna Maria Balliet, who married Elizabeth Barbara, last name is unknown but presumed to be Hunsicker, took the Oath of Allegiance in Northampton County, Oct 6, 1765. He was a wagonmaker.
He migrated to the “Bullskin” of Frederick County, Virginia with his family, where he became a land owner and prominent citizen, for he appears on Frederick County land records first in 1768. This was after the birth of his son Christian, 1766, Reformed Church Germantown, Pennsylvania.
Christian Allemong told Samuel Kercheval that the Allemong and Riley families established the first settlement at the head of Bullskin.
He purchased in 1769, 100 acres of land for which he paid in Penn. currency. The same year purchased the adjoining 300 acres for which he paid in Virginia currency. These lands adjoined the lands of the late Thomas Lord Fairfax. These were later bought by Major Casper Rinker, sold and given in dower for the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth to Jacob Allemong, Sr. (1754-1808).
He received land in Frederick County, Virginia, now Berkeley County, West Virginia. He later gave land to his grandsons, Jacob and Christian, through his son Jacob, 1754-1808, and his wife Elizabeth Rinker, daughter of Casper Rinker and Mary Marie Schultz.
In 1769, he purchased 100 acres of land for which he paid in Pennsylvania currency, and the same year purchased the adjoining 300 acres for which he paid in Virginia currency. These lands adjoined the lands of the late Lord Thomas Fairfax. Casper Rinker later bought this land from Lord Fairfax, which he then sold and gave in dower for the marriage of his daughter, Elizabeth to Jacob Allemong Sr. (1754-1808).
Jacob Allemong in 1790 gave portions of his land to sons, Jacob Sr. and Christian. Thereby we can see the building of the large plantations of one family.
