    • (1) Mather, Otis M., Six Generations of Larues and Allied Families, Hodgenville, KY: 1921, p. 58:

      JACOB LARUE.

      Son of Jacob LaRue (I.) and Mary Frost LaRue. Married, first, in 1796, Phebe Hodgen . . . (1777-1825). Second marriage, March 26, 1826. to Deborah Welsh, a widow, whose maiden name was Dorsey, first husband, Hugh McElroy . . . , second husband John Welsh. Lived on farm near Nolynn Church, more recently known as the A. D. Hunt Place, now owned by George Allen. . . . In 1823 sold to Samuel Weller . . . a tract of nearly 400 acres on Nolynn, now known as the W. T. Patterson place. Jacob LaRue . . . moved to Illinois in the year 1828, and located in Coles County. Died in 1851. aged "at least 82 years." Is believed to have been buried in Owings graveyard, Cumberland County, Ill.

      (2) According to the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, General Land Office Records <http://www.glorecords.blm.gov>, Jacob LaRUE acquired patents for four parcels of real estate in Township 11 North, Range 8 East, Coles County, IL between 10 August 1838 and 1 November 1839. The Bureau of Land Management has assigned the following accession numbers to those land patents: IL2530__.423, IL2530__.424, IL2530__.425 and IL2540__.474.

      (3) A household headed by Jacob LAREW is listed in the 1840 census of Coles County, IL.

      Listed in Jacob's household are 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 60 and 70 years of age; 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age; and 1 free white female between 30 and 40 years of age.

      Assuming that Jacob is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age, he would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1840 census.

      The other members of Jacob's household are not identified in the 1840 census.

      (4) A household headed by Jacob LaRUE's son, John LaRUE, is listed in the 1850 census of Muddy Precinct, Coles County, IL. [John's surname is listed as LAINE in the index to the 1850 census.] [Note by compiler: The census enumerator's handwriting is difficult to read, and the compiler is not certain that he has read it correctly.]

      Next to John LaRUE's household in the 1850 census is a household headed by William JEFFRIS. Listed in William JEFFRIS' household is "Jacob Larry JEFFRIS," a man who was then 76 years of age and was born in VA. "Jacob Larry JEFFRIS," who was born in about 1774, according to the 1850 census, might really have been Jacob LaRUE but for the fact that Jacob LaRUE was born in 1783.

      (5) The compiler has not confirmed whether Jacob LaRUE died in 1851 and is buried in Owings graveyard, Cumberland County, IL, as suggested in Mather, Otis M., Six Generations of Larues and Allied Families, Hodgenville, KY: 1921, p. 58. [According to the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) of the U.S. Geological Survey, the only cemetery in present-day IL named Owings is located in St. Clair County.]
