Family History : It is uncertain as to where the Rose family lived when Patience was born. It has been suggested that the family had lived at Crum Elbow on the Hudson river, near Livingston Manor. Also Patience's mother is not known.

Her father, Mathias, had leased land at Saratoga when the Revolution broke out. Thus the family found themselves surrounded by American troops in 1777.

An affidavit made by Henry Young (who had been at the Saratoga battle in 1777) brought to light that Patience, at that time, had provided assistance in some way which had saved his life and the lives of others under his command. At this time Patience would have been in her teens.
