Jacob Doty was born before 1784 in New Jersey to Samuel Doty (1765-1829) and Mary Brown (1761-1844) and died 23 October 1866 in Indiana, USA of unspecified causes. He married Isabelle Trippe (1791-1874) 1809 in Venango County, Pennsylvania, United States. Ancestors are from the United States.

There are some incongruities in the biographical facts which suggest that there may be a confounding of two different Jacob Dotys. In particular, Jacob Doty's first wife, Isabelle Trippe, outlived his second wife, Margaret Garrigus, in an age when divorce was rare. Moreover, the 1850 Census for Medina Township, Warren County, Indiana, shows that 66-year-old Jacob Doty was living with 59-year-old "Eby".
