22 June 1749 he married Marit Arnesdatter. In the Tax census of 1762 Jacob was listed as farmer for the Nyplassen (Nyplasshaugen) farm. The Røros Bydgebok states that there is reason to believe Jacob and Marit moved to the Nyplassen farm immediately after being married. The bygdebok does not state the grounds for that statement but everything I have found supports it.
