Jacob Lemons was a solider in the Black Hawk War, and was an express messenger. In a Mackinaw boat he rowed on the Mississippi River from Prairie du Chien to St. Peters at the time of the Bad Ax fight. He was one of the first soldiers in Prairie du Chien, and took a squad of men into the woods on what is now known as the Minnesota River, where they cut timber with which to build Old Fort Caranford, at Prairie du Chien. It is said that when he went to that place a white man would not dare show his face from behind the bluffs. He was the father of a large family, as follows: Rebecca, wife of Oscar Ward; Jacob; Susan, wife of John B. Coyel; Joseph E.; Theodore; Caroline; Walter; Moses, and David. The latter was a soldier in the late Civil War and died of chronic diarrhoea. -- Portrait and Biographical Album of Marshall County, Kansas, Chapman Brothers (1889)
