Does anyone recognize this Jacob Kimes who was living in Marshall Co, IA

We're wondering if he COULD BE the Jacob Kimes that left DeKalb Co, IN
after 1860 and was never heard from again.
Just happened to notice another Johnson co, IA resident while looking
over data in another branch of the KEIMs family. Martha May Bender
HELFRICH died in Iowa City, IA, in 1966. Her mother, Amanda Ellen Keim,
was born in Elkhart Co, IN, where many of the KEIMs settled after their
ancestors left PA and moved west. My KIMES were from a different branch,
but I only discovered this after studying many lines living in the
counties surrounding Kosciusko and Elkhart Co, IN.
A new-found letter supports prior thoughts that our branch of the KIMES
family spent the early years of the 1830s in Wayne Co, OH. The letter,
written in 1977 by one of Daniel Kimes's granddaughters, states:
"When Daniel was around 6 years old he moved with his parents to
Wooster, Ohio. After 2 years, they moved to or near Warsaw, Indiana -
where the family lived for 16 years."
"From Indiana the family (or Daniel alone because he would have been
around 24 at the time) came to Iowa to homestead a farm. Some of the
neighbors over the years could never understand why Daniel picked the
site he did - there was much better land available in Johnson County. He
supposedly said it reminded him of Pennsylvania. He built the barn in
the side of a hill."
Daniel Kimes, son of Peter and Nancy (Liggett) Kimes, died 28 June 1906.
He is buried in the Czech National Cemetery in Cedar Rapids, Linn Co, IA.
On the 1856 IA census, Daniel said he'd been in Iowa 4 years. Living
w/him at that time was his mother, Nancy, and sister, Elizabeth. The
census lists they'd been in IA for 3 years.
Daniel's brother Uriah Kimes settled in Johnson Co, IA, in 1847.
