JACOB RECTOR was born about 1794 in Campbell County, Virginia.

Jacob moved with his parents to Roane County, Tennessee sometime before 1810. His grandparents (William and Ann Butler) along with many other relatives settled in this area during the early 1800's. Their exploration led Lewis Rector to follow them with Jacob and the rest of his family a few years later.

Jacob Rector served in the 2nd Regiment of Tennessee Volunteer Infantry, Colonel John Brown commanding. He served as a private in Captain Lundsford Oliver's Company. The dates of his service were from October 16, 1813 through January 1, 1814. This regiment, along with a unit commanded by Colonel Samuel Bunch, comprised a brigade commanded by General George Doherty of the East Tennessee Volunteer Militia. Accounts of the movement of this regiment show it at Fort Armstrong (late November 1813) and Fort Deposit, which indicate that this unit probably was used to protect the supply lines from East Tennessee.

Jacob was a farmer.

Jacob married MARY JEMIMA PEAK, the daughter of JACOB PEAK and MARY JANE JONES, about 1817 in Eastern Tennessee.

Jacob was listed on the Roane County, Tennessee Tax list for 1818, 1819, 1830, and 1831.
