one researcher lists Anna's last name as Workman, but I cannot find any source for that.

Question - is this for certain our Jacob? Watsontown is right on the other side of the Montour County line, so that address does not rule him out - but in the 1880 Census he is listed as a lime burner - is that possible with little use of his left arm? Perhaps - but I wish I knew more.
Buried In Long's Cemetery, Montour County PA
From PA 42, on the west edge of Bloomsburg between US 11 and I-80, go west on Frosty Valley Road 6.5 miles to Columbia Hill Road. Turn right on Columbia Hill Road and go 2 miles. The site is on the left, just past Welliver Road, in front of the cemetery.
Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church
Long's Church was erected in 1869. For most of its existence it was on the Buckhorn charge ― whose May 17, 1927, quarterly conference authorized the sale of the building. Some reports indicate this structure was also known as the Frosty Valley Church, but it is believed that the Frosty Valley building was on Frosty Valley Road in Columbia Vounty.
The building was sold to a John Arnwine on August 20, 1928. It was used as the West Hemlock Township Community Hall for many years until 2008, when the township erected a new building to the north and tore down the old church. The old church stood in the parking lot in front of the cemetery and to the left of the present township building.
