I'm a direct descendant of the son Jacob (he is my 3rd great grandfather),
and have copied a great many names from the 1980 book "FREDERICK'S HOPE" by
Wilson W. and Ruth Ellen Zollars-Stampe and Richard G. Zollars.  The book
collected information on Frederick Zoller's line.  The will is copied on
page 26, and here is what they say about it:

The Last Will and Testament of Frederick Zollars, who we consider the first
immigrant of our family, the 'original progenitor of us all', is found in
