"Jacob was first listed as a tax payer in Rhinebeck Precinct in June '48 and his name continued through June 1768 (SupRecDC). It is not yet known exactly where he lived thereafter, though the family was undoubtedly in Rensselaer County since four sons had children baptized there between 1778 and 1790 (CBL). Possibly he lived in Pittstown where his son Jacob returned for a short time from Montgomery Co. (MCD). Robert's 'N.Y. in the Revolution' lists a Jacob Neher as one of those whose property was confiscated after the Rev. War due to Loyalist sympathies, but no location was give. However a study of Canadian land petitions and lists of United Empire Loyalists reveals that Jacob, Charles, John and Frederick were soldiers in the King's Royal Regt.--Jacob and Charles serving in the unit, Jessup's Rangers, under Christian Wehr, Sr. (Histories of Eastern Townships show Christian Wehr as one of earliest settlers). No land petition has yet been found for Jacob or Charles, but John received a grant in Fredericksburg, Canada West, while Frederick went in East District Cornwall. This was a divided family as were so many during the Rev.---George, Jacob and David were probably patriots, since they remained in N.Y.S."
