Jacob Klock, (Clock) Colonel
Service Record

Note: After spending YEARS looking for something on Col. Jacob Klock, here are his service records.  The War Office had two serious fires in Washington DC, the latest was when the British fired the buildings in 1813.  In the 1840s--1890s, NY supplied their records, or copies of them to Washington.  Good thing they did, because the State Archives had their fire in 1912 and many of the Rev. War records burned at that time.
