Jacob Sipes was the son of Jacob Sipes Sr. and Catherine Williams.
During the War of 1812, Jacob Sipes served in both the 5th Lincoln and 2nd York Militias.
He served in the 2nd Flank Co. of the 5th Lincoln Militia when it was established. 
He was recorded as a private in Capt. James Durand’s 5th Lincoln Flank Company in 1812. 
He served as a sergeant from July 25 to August 17, 1812 in Captain William Applegarth’s Flank Company of the 2nd York Militia. 
He was absent without leave from October 17 to November 24, 1812 from Captain Hector S. McKay’s Company of the 2nd York Militia. 
He was ranked as a sergeant but was supernumerary in the 2nd Flank Company in 1812. 
On October 2, 1815, Jacob Sipes of Beverly Twp. made a war claim for ten hogs killed by the Indians encamped in the township in the fall of 1813. 
Jacob Sypes, of Beverly Twp. and a former sergeant in Capt. Applegarth’s Flank Company of the 2nd York, received 200 acres worth of script in 1850 and 1851. 
If Jacob died in 1823, who claimed his militia land grant about 1850? As the grants were available in 1820 and Jacob's claim was not made until 30 years later it would appear that the claim may have been made by one of his heirs.
