Editor's Note: The text in this section of the Money Family Tree has been adapted from an informal research paper entitled "The Money Family of Yadkin County North Carolina and Tazewell County Virginia as Descended From Jacob Money of the French House of Monnett." This research paper was concluded in June 2000, and was written by Michael Money, Nyoka Money and Kenneth Money. My thanks to the authors.


Jacob Money was born in Person County, North Carolina about 1748. We believe he was married about 1770. His wife's name is listed as Susannah in the source from Ancestry.com while another source (Latter Day Saints) only lists Mrs. Jacob Money. Both sites list the children as:

NameApproximate Date of Birth
Isaac1773
William1770 or 1774 (see note below)
John1775
Morgan1777
James1784
Daughter Money1787
Daughter Money1790
Mary Money1790 (Were Daughter Money and Mary twins?)
David Money1792
Jacob Money Jr1795

In the 1790 census for Rutherford County North Carolina there is a listing for a Jacob Money and a David Money. The Hyde County, NC census lists a Charles Money. In these census reports, the name is spelled "Money." We do not have any documentation to substantiate a link between these men and our family genealogy but the possibility is very real.

Jacob Money is listed as the head of household in the 1800 census index of Person County, North Carolina (page 202). Land deeds indicate that he purchased land in Surry County as documented in Deed Book N, page 280: George Hudspeth to Jacob Money 14 April 1801 15 acres for $15. Landmarks: south fork of Deep Creek Henry ??ur's corner Nicholas Gentry's line Jacob Money's corner. Recorded 1816.)

The 1810 census of Surry County indicates Jacob Money was head of household with the following:

Males
To age 1010 to 16 yrs16 to 26 yrs26 to 45 yrs45+ yrs
 1
(Jacob Jr)
1
(David)
 1
(Jacob Sr.)

Females
To age 1010 to 16 yrs16 to 26 yrs26 to 45 yrs45+ yrs
  1
(Second Daughter and
Third Daughter
really Mary?)
 1
(Susannah)

The last documented account that we have found for Jacob Money is a land deed recorded in Book N page 295: Jacob Money to Morgan Money 10 Oct. 1811. 18 acres for the natural love and affection that a parent hath toward a child. Landmarks: Deep Creek Morgan Money's line Witnesses: Thomas Wright, Samuel Money.

Jacob Money Sr is not listed in the North Carolina 1820 census of Surry County which would indicate his death was between 1811 and 1820. His name is mentioned in the 1813 tax list of Surry County. He is no longer found after this date so he apparently died in late 1813 or early 1814.

Jacob Money lived through the latter part of the Colonial days in America when the "United States" was not yet conceived in the minds of many people living in the thirteen colonies. The people of North Carolina owed their allegiance to the British Crown during the first thirty-three years of his life. Jacob Money lived through the American Revolution of 1775-1781, the ratification and creation of the Constitution, the election of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison as Presidents. It is sure he was well loved by his family and his passing was truly the end of an era.
