Jacob HAAS
Catharina KOPP
Husband:  Jacob HAAS
Birth:  10 Aug 1780 or 1784-94, Northampton [now Lehigh] Co., PA
Death:  26 Jul 1852, Lehigh Co., PA
Disposition:  buried Zeigel's Union Church Cemetery, Breinigsville, Lehigh Co., PA
Occupation:  farmer

Secondary sources disagree as to Jacob's parents.  I don't know who is correct.  And what is probably going on here is that these are not two different couples, but that the data on one couple is garbled.  In other words, John is Johann Peter and Catharine is Maria Christina Catharina.
Father:  John HAAS  (1745-1812)
Mother:  Catharine TREXLER
or
Father:  Johann Peter HAAS III (1748-1834)
Mother:  Maria Christina TREXLER (1753-1829)

His age at death is almost certainly inflated.

Marriage:  13 Dec 1808, Macungie Twp., Northampton [now Lehigh] Co., PA
Wife:  Catharina KOPP
Birth:  30 Mar 1780-82 or 1784-94, PA
Death:  2 Mar 1859, presumably in Lehigh Co., PA
Disposition:  buried Zeigel's Union Church Cemetery, Breinigsville, Lehigh Co., PA
Occupation:  homemaker

A Pedigree Resouce File at the LDS says these are her parents:

Father:  Andrew KOPP, b. 11 Oct 1761, Aichalden, Württemberg; d. Upper Macungie, Lehigh, PA
Mother:  Elizabethe __?__, b. 1760, Aichalden, Württemberg; d. Upper Macungie, Lehigh, PA

My problem with this assertion is that, if Catharina really was born in 1780, then her father was only 18 years old when he married, which would have been unusual for a German male in the 18th Century (i.e., to have married so young).  Not impossible, just unusual.  However, I see no evidence of any other KOP/KOPP/etc. in Northampton County in the 1790 and 1800 censuses, except Conrad I.  Still, it remains a possibility that this file is correct, and I am wrong.

Father may beConrad KOPP/KOP, Sr.
Mother may beEva Elisabetha KNOEDLER

Her age at death was almost certainly inflated.

The birth/death dates for Jacob & Catharine presumably came from tombstones.  The death dates may be affected by some age-inflation because the 1810 census shows them born later (i.e., younger).
