Not expecting Jacob's marriage cert until after Christmas. (28 Dec?)
We wait with interest.....

BTW I had noticed that an Adam Langwasser b abt 1862 had gone to the USA.
Good spot - see reply #13 et seq. https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=457616.9

Still doesn't help with when Jacob A arrived, but that information might not be available; strange there are no naturalisation records.

I have now received a copy of Jacob's marriage certificate. He was married on  10 May 1885 at Newton Abbot Register Office.

Jacob Langwasser, age 22. Bachelor, musician. Of 1 St Michael's Terrace, Torquay. Father - Peter Langwasser, farmer. The witnesses were the bride's brother and sister ( my great grandmother). This occupation is not repeated on any census.

 This would appear to eliminate Adam (1862) who, coincidentally, was described as a musician when he entered  United States in 1887 as a member of a band.

If, as seems likely, Jacob was illegitimate  I think  the declared identity of his father should be approached with caution.

I'm not sure if any of this takes us any further forward but would welcome any inspired suggestions.
