The Historical Society featured Jacob in a program centered on learning about his many hours of cleaning, restoring and documenting of every grave of the Vernon Cemetery.

Sharon Zieman presented Jacob with the Society’s History Patch in recognition of his work. The 2016 Nolensville Historical Society President, Steve Allenmore said, “ Our members were very impressed with Jacob’s work and grateful to him for putting in many, many hours on this project. We learned valuable information that will help in maintaining other cemeteries in our area. We look forward to continuing to work with local youth as our membership continues to grow in 2017.”
