Jacob Garrigus
Birth: 1716
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 13, 1798
Morris County
New Jersey, USA

Jacob was born a Garrigues but during the Revolutionary War a rift in the family occurred. The New Jersey branch of the Garrigues family supported open rebellion against the British Crown the Philadelphia branch of the Garrigues family being Quakers did not. Jacob was disowned by his Quaker family in Philadelphia so Jacob decided to remove all connections with them and formally dropped the "e" from his surname.

During the Revolution he served as a private in Captain Josiah Hall's Company of Morris County (NJ) militia.
