This would only be our subject if he is the younger man in the household.  But certainly the elder woman is too old to be the mother of the children, so we do have a mature couple living with a younger one.  Unless Jacob's father is also named Jacob, it's unlikely the elder male is Jacob's father because, if so, he would be listed as head of household.  Listed seven lines from George STROUPE/STROUP, who is nine lines from Daniel STROUP I
