The Ohio Marriages, 1800-1958 record for Jacob’s marriage to Manta Wright lists his birthdate as 1859. This is most likely an error and not a different Jacob Cary. The marriage record for Maude Cary in the same database lists Maude’s parents as Jacob Cary and Manta Wright. In addition, the 1900 US Census notes that Jacob and Samantha Cary have been married for 20 years.
