W. Jacob Gerber arrived Aug. 28, 1773 on the ship Hope Galley. This may be "Jacob Garter from port of Rotterdam [who] was indentured Oct. 4, 1773 to Jacob Winey and his assigns, of Philadelphia, for a 3-year period as 'servant, kept at the business of a miner, if he understands it.'"  Jacob Gerber is on the Pa. Tax List of 1780 at Central Phila. Co., Mulberry-East Twp.
