Jacob, his parents and two brothers arrived in Philadelphia on October 20, 1752 on the ship "Duke of Wirtenburg" that sailed from Rotterdam and Cowes under Captain Daniel Montpelier.
By an Act of Assembly in 1768 the inhabitants of Baltimore, including Michael Rub and Jacob Rub, signed a petition to transfer the county seat from Joppa to "Baltimore Town". On pg. 558 (see source citation below) Michael and Jacob Rub both left their mark. Another man signed and his signature was transcribed as Jacob Rul(?). It is possible that this is Jacob Sr. and both of his sons, Jacob Jr. and Michael, signed by leaving their mark.
