Jacob Jennings Brown (May 9, 1775 – February 24, 1828), American soldier, born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. After a brief career as a schoolteacher in Ohio and New York City, Brown bought land in western New York State near Lake Ontario, where he founded the village of Brownville.

He received a command in the state militia and was made brigadier general in 1810. At the beginning of the War of 1812 he was placed in command of a section of the frontier along Lake Ontario. He was successful in defending the area against the British, and in 1813 he was appointed brigadier general in the regular U.S. Army.

As commander of the so-called Army of the Niagara River, Brown failed to defeat the British at the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, where he was seriously wounded. After the war he remained in the service, and from 1821 until his death he was commanding general of the U.S. Army.
