    • BIOGRAPHY:
      Jacob Fretz was born in Bucks Co., Pa., about 1732, and was buried in the Old Mennonite graveyard, at Deep Run. About 1755, he was married to Catharine Nash. They at first lived on a farm in Tinicum Twp., near Erwinna, later known as the Ervine place, he having sold it to a man by the name of Ervine. It afterwards came into the hands of the Stovers. After he sold his farm near Erwinna, he purchased a farm in Bedminster Twp., where he lived and died, and where his son Joseph (known as Big Joe) also lived and died; after which it was sold to Isaac Detweiler, and is now owned and occupied by Aaron Yerger. The farm originally extended back to the Tohickon. Jacob and his wife were in all probability members of the Mennonite Church at Deep Run.
