Son of Simon and Maria, he lived to 64 years of age. John Baptist Van Patten married his 2nd cousin, Elizabeth (Betsey) Van Patten, 8 Mar 1806 at Schenectady, NY. (John and Elizabeth were both 4 X Great Grandchildren of Nicholas Van Patten and Rebecca Groot.)
Tony Giambra found this in August 2010. The following excerpts are from a letter written in 1985 from a staff member of the Sheboygan County County Historical Research Society to Julia Ritterbush in Bismark N.D.
> "I spent most of the day copying old gravestones which had been piled up behind woodlawn cemetery at Plymouth, WI." She goes on to tell of accessing copy records done by DAR IN 1946. " I realized that these stones had originally been in Plymouth's Union Cemetry" and "Among them was John Van Patten died Feb 26, 1868 age 83 yrs, 11 months, 9 days. It is possible that if Elizabeth (his wife)were buried there that her stone might have met an earlier fate."
The John Baptist Van Patten family first settled in North Perry, Lake Co., OH in 1831, after losing their property in Schenectady due to the duplicity of a friend. Then after 15 years thsy moved to Plymouth, WI in 1846. As there was only a trail from Sheboygan to plymouth the journey took several months. Daughter Jane soon met Stephen Thorp and they were the first to marry in the new town. They established a cheese making business but it was not mentioned in their joint will of 1865.
