Jacob of Beersheba of the old testament as far as i can remember, so said cos the ladder looks like a 'ladder onto heaven' or some such.
That and as far as i can tell the original Jacobs ladder is a wooden toy of connected blocks or something which would 'unwind' together if thats the correct term.
There is also a plant named after it...
Tesla wasnt much into plants or wooden toys.

So many questions, so little TIME.
