FatherJacob Kolb b. 21 May 1685, d. 4 Oct 1739
MotherSarah Van Sintern b. 1690, d. 25 Apr 1766
     Isaac Kolb was born on 28 March 1711.1,2 He was the son of Jacob Kolb and Sarah Van Sintern. Isaac Kolb married Gertrude Ziegler, daughter of Rev. Michael Ziegler and Catherine Schrauger, on 11 July 1734.3 Isaac Kolb and Gertrude lived in Gwynedd Township, Philadelphia County, now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.1 Isaac Kolb was a Mennonite minister and later bishop.2
     The Kolbs were a strong, athletic people, some of them almost giants. It is related that Isaac Kolb was a powerful man. It is said that when he was building a house, one day while at dinner, he was discussing with his workmen whether the cross beams could be hauled to the place with two horses, or whether four horses would be required. After dinner he walked out to where the timber lay, and shouldered it, and to the utter surprise of the workmen they saw him bearing the piece of timber on his shoulders. The fame of his strength was heralded far and wide throughout the neighborhood round about. He was a peaceably disposed man, and would not fight, though often challenged. When on a certain trip to Philadelphia, he stopped at a hotel over night, he came in contact with a bully, who challenged him to fight, which was declined, whereupon the bully branded him a coward and struck him in the face, which angered Mr. Kolb so that he grabbed the bully by both his arms near the shoulders and set him in a chair that squashed under him. When he arose from the floor both of his arms were powerless. The bully said he was satisfied with the experiment, and did not wish to fight with Kolb after that.4 He died in 1776 in Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, at age 64 years.2
