Here is where he is buried. https://www.ancestry.com/discoveryui-content/view/12772825:60525
I see lots of Jacob Funk or Funck listed but none in the Navy all in the Army
Here is some information. What I found from Wayne County. Where did you get this information that he served on Commodore Perry's navy? https://books.google.com/books?id=aBwLAwAAQBAJ&pg=PA397&lpg=PA397&dq=Jacob+Funk+Wayne+County+Ohio&source=bl&ots=SiSMtxd1…

Dear Mr. Funk,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Muster Rolls and Payrolls for U.S. Navy Vessels, 1798 - 1860 in the Naval Records Collection of the Office of Naval Records and Library (Record Group 45) that may contain the muster rolls of the various naval vessels that served under Oliver Hazard Perry in Lake Erie. For information about these non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
