Solomon Truckenmiller, son of Jacob, was born June 11, 1785, and lived in Delaware township, Northumberland county, near McEwensville, where he had a farm of 120 acres, this property remaining in the family name until 1903. He died on that place Nov. 7, 1857. Mr. Truckenmiller was a Lutheran in religious faith, a member of the church at McEwensville, which he served in official capacities for many years. He was a tall man, of medium build, and light complexion. His wife, Eve, died Sept. 21, 1864, aged eighty years, seven months, twenty-seven days. Their children were as follows: Edmund, Charles and Solomon are all mentioned below; Mary (Polly) married John Clapp and they lived in Lewis township, Northumberland county; Susan died Dec. 25, 1895, aged seventy-three years, six months, fifteen days, unmarried; Rebecca died July 7, 1886, aged sixty years, three months, eleven days, unmarried; Sarah married Jonathan Strause and lived in Montour county; Elizabeth married David Dieffenbacher and lived in Delaware township. - Floyds History

1804 - Daughter Elizabeth marries George Stahlnecker
"I will assume that Elizabeth & George where married in Upper Milford Twp, Northampton Co, PA as her Truckenmiller family lived on their Grist Mill in Upper Mioford near the Berks County Line. Jacob & Maria (Kerchner) Truckenmiller came to Delaware Twp, Northumberland Co, PA from Upper Milford Twp, Northamption County, PA in May of 1811 & two years later Elizabeth & George followed her parents to McEwensville, PA. They had just settled down in May 1813 and her husband George Stahlnecker died before June 26, 1813. She was left to raised her 4 children by herself, I suspect she had her daughter Elizabeth after her husbands death. I'm sure it wasn't easy for Elizabeth to raise her family of 4 in early 1800's, but with the help of her parents, her sisters, Magdalena Seibert, Christina Dieffenderfer, Nancy Derr & Susan Hill & her 4 brothers Solomon, Samuel, Jacob & young George, she managed. Unfortunately her sister Anna Maria Hittle was living in Montgomery County at that time and was not able to help. When George Stahlnecker died 1813 he left everything in the estate to his two sons Samuel & David and nothing for his girls so when Elizabeth died she left everything to her two daughters Mary & Elizabeth. I can just image their mode of travel in 1811 & 1813, did they go by rivers and streams, Wagon trains wheren't an option but possibly a wagon stuffed with all their belongs. Was it pulled by Oxen or by a cow or one horse? You Ask what is a Grist Mill -- I was told it's where you grinded the Grain Dry, But we know the Little Truckenmiller Grist Mill near McEwensville has a beautiful little stream going right thru it. *Tidbit: Upper Milford Twp, is now in Lehigh County, formerly in Northampton County, PA & before that Bucks County, PA." - Patsy Hittle Gore
Around this same time, their son Solomon Married Eva Mary Schwartz

I'm fairly certain, based on this, that this is the correct Jacob - but it does leave:
Two unknown males between 10 & 15, 1 unknown male between 26 & 44, and one unknown female beween 16 & 25
Those unknowns could likely be servants, farm hands, or possibly one of Jacobs children is married and their spouse lives here as well...

THE TRUCKENMILLER FAMILY. The TRUCKENMILLERS originated in Union County, central Pennsylvania, where Lewisburg the county seat, is the site of a federal prison, also Bucknell University. Much farmland there is rough and rocky so tidings of the fertile prairies of Illinois got around by word of mouth starting a trek of ox and horses teams westward.
George & Martha LaSHELLE TRUCKENMILLER were born in 1809 & 1812 respectively, had six sons and three daughters, among them Edward Gary TRUCKENMILLER, the fourth child, born in 1842 in Union County, the family came west in 1847 when Edward was five years old, settling around Loran north of Cherry Grove township in Stephenson county. The family history revels that Edward enlisted at age 18 in the Illinois Infantry (which had three Stephenson county companies, two Carroll, and five Ogle) and that Edward's Company, was company F. apparently one of the Stephenson county companies, since the two Carroll county companies were company C later commanded by Captain Hawk, the Carroll county congressman, and Company I led by Hawk's close friend, Captain E. T. E. Becker. The 92nd saw some of the hardest fighting of the Civil War, but Edward TRUCKENMILLER came back and after an honorable discharge married Sarah HOY in 1868, moving from Loran to the farm north of Mt. CARROLL, near the old Arnolds Grove School.
In 1882, the TRUCKENMILLERS moved to a farm in Cherry Grove Township now Tenanted by the Walter Kent and Sheldon Moll Families.
The TRUCKENMILLERS ten children included Emma who married a Van Brocklin, Oliver, Carried (Wolford), Mary (Schneider), Lulu (Lobman), George, Howard, Grover (Johnny), Charles and Edward. The details of the family's life on the farm are unrecorded but the parents moved to Shannon in 1906 and lived in the house now occupied by the Vernon Linker family. The children farmed in the Lanark and Shannon communities during the intervening years except Carrie, Lulu and Charles, and after Sarah Hoy TRUCKENMILLER's death in 1913, Edward continued living as a widower in Shannon until he passed on in 1935 at 93 years of age. The brief letter listing some details of the family tree disclosed that one son, Edward G. Truckenmiller, is living in Lanark , as of Aug 16, 1968. ... [Continues with the history of Edwards's children]. p.384. 
Robert TRUCKENMILLER seventh child of George and Martha, married Nettie SHAUT (Shout?) in 1881 lived in Shannon and engaged in Poulty marketing. He had one son, Mervin TRUCKENMILLER. He married Sadie MESSNER whose two children were Dorothy TRUCKENMILLER of Shannon and Robert T. of Freeport. p.384. .
Jacob, in Floyd's History of Northumberland County
Jacob Truckenmiller, evidently son of Sebastian, was born Aug. 29,
1759, in lower Berks county, and came to Northumberland county before
the Revolution, settling in Delaware township, where his descendants
still live. He was the pioneer of the family in this immediate locality,
and being a millwright and miller by calling built the original
Truckenmiller mill, selecting the site now owned by his great-grandson,
Valentine S. Truckenmiller. He died Aug. 23, 1823, at McEwensville and
is buried there, in the old upper cemetery. In religion he was a
Lutheran. His account, entered Sept. 9, 1823, in Will Book 2, page 442,
mentions sons Jacob, Solomon, George, Samuel, and also Mrs. Mary
Truckenmiller, probably his wife. The executors were Solomon
Truckenmiller and Henry Reader. The account was filed in the Register's
office. As shown by tombstone records, Jacob's wife was named
Annamaria, and she was born Jan. 16, 1763, and died July 27, 1843. Their
children were: Solomon, mentioned below; Jacob, born March 22, 1790,
who died April 15, 1880 (his wife, Sarah, died Oct. 3, 1873, aged
seventy-six years, one month, fifteen days); George; and Samuel, born in
1803, who died in 1883 (his wife, Sarah, born in 1805, died in 1895).
