Genealogical material gathered by Helen Jacobs Taylor and her husband, Charles S. Taylor, relating to the family of Abraham Jacobs (1872-1963) of Corinth, Vermont, mainly following the line of his son, Jamie Elwin Jacobs (1897-1993). The material has been collated in a binder and appears to be arranged chronologically. The binder contains genealogical material, photographs, and brochures relating to family businesses. The businesses include peddling, horse trading, oil burners, and snowmobiles. Of particular interest is the material relating to the invention of the "sno-rover" snowmobile. As well, the binder contains a small amount of material relating to Abraham Jacobs' brother, Simon Jacobs (1864-1936) of Vermont and New Jersey

An octagonal cast iron tower, 43 ft high, was imported from England and assembled on Breaksea Island at the entrance to King George's Sound near Albany by convicts in 1858. Made to a design by the Colonial Lighthouse Engineer at the Board of Trade in London, its second order catadioptric light with oil burners was placed 383 feet above sea level, and was visible for 30 nautical miles. The tower was reconstructed in rough dressed stone 24 feet high in 1901 and given a first-order light. Manning ceased in 1926. The light was converted from acetylene gas to solar power in 1984
