A son of Ebenezer and Sarah (Wright) Patch. Jacob married Mary Hazen, a daughter of Benjamin and Betty (Nutting) Hazen on January 9, 1772 at Groton, Massachusetts.

Jacob served in the Revolutionary War.

During the American Revolution Jacob is listed as Corporal under the command of Captain Josiah Sartell, and served 15 days marching 70 miles. Also, "Lord's Day July 3, 1808 notice was given for divine service A.M. that Mr. Jacob Patch and 11 others were requested by the church to read during the intermission at the meeting house on Sabbath, the following season (D. Chaplin, Pastor)."

Jacob's brother Simon was wounded in the thigh at the Battle of White Plains on Oct. 28, 1776. Jacob in a distance of more than 200-miles brought him home to Groton, MA on a litter (made by fitting the butt end of small trees to the stirrups of a saddle and covered with a sack of hay). Simon died of these wounds on Dec. 31, 1776 at his father's home in Groton.

Jacob's death was caused suddenly by the wheels of a loaded wagon going over his body and was found about 15 minutes after the accident by his son Zara.
