From the Delaware Gazette, Sept. 1899
"The following sketches were written for the Gazette several years ago by Mr. J. M. Roney, and are republished by request; About the year 1850 a gang of men were seen dodging through the thick woods, where the now beautiful village of Ostrander is located.  They are slashing down bushes, sighting from tree to tree and carrying chain and compass.  It soon developed that they were surveyors, sent out to find the most practicable route for a railroad from Springfield to Pittsburgh, Pa. by Mount Vernon, Ohio.  The line was finally located where the track now lays; and called the Springfield, Mt. Vernon & Pittsburgh Railroad.  The construction of the road was soon commenced, the timber cut, the stumps grubbed out (some of which took two yoke of oxen to roll off the proposed path).  Maloney and McMillan were the contractors that built the road.  The engineer was a gentlemen named Ostrander, for whom the village was named.  It wasn't Jake O. Stranger, as some suppose.  Our object in writing this history is to keep in memory the boys and men who have been connected with his R.R. in this vicinity, most of whom have made a success in life, and now, if not dead, are occupying positions of responsibility."
None found.
Jacob is inconsistent with regards to his age over the decades on census records.  We're talking significant swings in age; yet its defintely the same Jacob Ostrander.

Although Jacob's parents are listed, no one has been able to link him with any other Ostrander family and/or found any record of the names provided here that he listed as his parients himself in a response to the Ostrander family genealogist.  The names given are those provided by Jacob himself.
