Jäger, Nathan a Lutheran minister, born in 1823, was educated for the sacred ministry first at Gettysburg Theological Seminary, and, completing his course with the Rev. J.P. Hecht, of Easton, was dedicated to the pastoral office in the summer of 1845. His first charge was at Orwigsburg, whence he removed to Lyken's Valley; thence successively to Falkner's Swamp, Upper Mount Bethel, and Reiglesville, Bucks County, Penn., where he died, Jan. 2, 1864. He was one of a large family of Lutheran ministers, consisting of his grandfather, father-in-law, brother-in-law; and a number of other relatives of the same name. His literary and theological attainments were very respectable, acquired amid difficulties that would have disheartened most other men. He studied when others slept, performing during the day the laborious duties of large pastorates, and pursuing his studies at night. His theological knowledge was quite extensive. He was an earnest man, and an energetic laborer in the cause of Christ.
