Jacob Hager obituary

The Plough Boy (Albany)
August 28, 1819

     Died at Blenheim, Schoharie county, on Saturday the 21st inst. of a lingering disease, Capt.. Jacob Hager, in the 85th year of his age. It may be truly said, that he was a true friend to his country, a patron and a soldier. He served in the French war, and as a captain through the revolution of 1776, on the frontiers, where he distinguished himself, and risked his life in many instances, to gain our independence. He was a faithful friend, an affectionate husband, and a kind father. He descended to the grave, like a ripe shock of corn, and died in the full faith of his Redeemer.
