Jacob F. SROTE. Among the early settlers of Pike County, Mo., may be mentioned Jacob F. and Elizabeth (WILLHOIT) SROTE, both of whom were born in 1808, the former in Kentucky, and the latter in Virginia. They were married in the latter State, whither the mother had come in 1810, and there resided until 1838, at which time they took up their residence in Missouri. The father was a Democrat, and died in 1877. The mother still lives, and resides with her children. Although eighty years of age she has never seen a railroad car. She is the mother of five children, and Jacob F. SROTE, whose name heads this sketch, is her youngest child. He was born in Pike County, Mo., December 27, 1842, and assisted his father on the farm until twenty-one years of age, at which time he began tilling the soil on his own responsibility. In 1869 he married Alice HAISLIP, who was also born in Lincoln County, May 6, 1849. Their union has resulted in the birth of two children: William E. and Lester E. Both parents are members of the Missionary Baptist Church, and he is a Democrat. He owns 143 acres of land, having made the most of it since he came to Lincoln County. During the war he served in the militia, and belongs to the A. O. U. W.
