2.  1810 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  the Ohio census was lost (except for Washington County).  Tax lists are substituted on the CD where available, and while there are some Fairfield County records, there's no Jacob ECKERT (or variation), but the number of records is obviously well below what there should have been for the county (i.e., the tax lists are not complete).

The record is ambiguous with regard to Catherine's surname.  There's no horizontal line indicating "ditto" for Jacob's surname being the same as James's, as there is for Jacob, nor is Catherine's given name lined up with James's and Jacob's.  Surely this is Catherine ECKERT.

PG 29
Case #266 estate of Jacob L ECKERT of Berne Twp. Filed in 1817
Jacob L. ECKERT owned land in Berne Twp, Fairfield Co (Sec 21) and in Good Hope Twp of Hocking Co (Sec.s 14 & 23).  By 1837, Rebecca, widow of Jacob L ECKERT, was married to Jacob HINE.  The children were:  Henry L ECKERT; minors, Catherine, Jacob and Sarah ECKERT, whose guardian was John GRAYBILL; minor George ECKERT, whose guardian was George CANODE; minor, Lemunday ECKERT, who guardian was Isaac COONS; minors, Lewis and Sally ECKERT, whose guardian was Samuel SHELLENBARGER.  George ECKERT, Sr. of Lancaster Co, PA, had willed Jacob ECKERT the land in Green Hope Twp of Hocking Co.
How could Jacob's will have been filed in 1817 if he died in 1818?  Has his tombstone been mis-read?  Rebecca married Jacob HINE more like 1857.  Rebecca was still surnamed REAM in the 1850 census, and Jacob HINE was still married to Margaret in 1850.  It's possible Rebecca Elizabeth married a different Jacob HINE in the 1830s, then was either widowed or divorced from him by 1850 and went back to using her prior husband's surname, though that explanation is harder to swallow than that someone simply misread a 5 for a 3 or made a typo.  It's also hard to figure why Henry was not a minor with a guardian; he was a mere babe in 1817.  Jacob died just under 11 years after he married, so none of his children could have been of age when he died.  This will should be re-examined.  I suspect Henry will turn out to be one of the minors whose guardian was Jacob GRAYBILL.
