John Patten was born in Billerica, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, on March 21, 1745.[1]

He married Mary Richardson, daughter of Jonathan and Lucy Clark Richardson, born in Dracut, June 19, 1753. They resided for a time in Andover, where they were admitted to the South Church by profession of faith on Feb. 6, 1 774. They afterward removed to Temple, New Hampshire, and it is said they were the first ones to go there in a covered carriage. To reach there they were obliged to follow marked trees. Mar. 29, 1782, they were dismissed from the church at Andover and transferred to the church at Temple, in which place they had already been living for some years.[1]

He was a private in Capt. Henry Abbott's company, which marched on the alarm of Apr. 19, 1775, and served one and one-half days. He served on the Committee of Correspondence and Safety in Temple, in 1777. In that year he served for forty days at Ticonderoga. In 1781 he was one of a committee of three on the erection of the new meeting-house. In 1777 he served as tithing-man; also in 1782, 1785, 1791, and 1792.[1][2]

He died Oct. 23, 1807.[1]
