Jacob Christian Dose was born 25 Apr 1882, in Issaquena County, MS, near Harworth, MS, a sawmill town along the Yazoo River. The town no longer exists, a casualty of too frequent flooding, clear cutting and the Depression. He was the son of David Christian and Josephine Bellinger Dose. His siblings included twin, Sophie, sister Carrie and brother Walter Samuel. His father had come from Germany in 1873, jumping ship in New York Harbor. The family life centered around farming, fishing, hunting and trapping. Life was difficult, little opportunity to accumulate any wealth. Loans were necessary survive. Most of the family eventually moved to Vicksburg and left their farm to be confiscated for failure to pay taxes.
