Military service records

  • The James and William Patterson in Congress Twp in 1830 were probably brothers, too. There father is the probable Robert Patterson, the Revolutionary War soldier. William does have an older male and female living with him. The age for the male would match Robert Patterson, Revolutionary War soldier. The female’s age is off by a few years. However, either the burial record could be incorrect or the census taker recorder her age in the incorrect column.



  • The last request you had referred to James Patterson of the Wayne County, Ohio Pioneer. The only additional information we have is James Patterson was born 1785 in Cecil County, Maryland. He owned land is the SW quarter of section 22 (160 acres) in Congress Township, Wayne County, Ohio. The individual who submitted the research is descendant through Rebecca Jane Patterson who married Thomas Ferguson. Rebecca Jane was the daughter of James and Rebecca. No information is provided on the parents of James and Rebecca Patterson. James Patterson is listed on the Pioneer Quilt.

Wills and Estates

  • There father is John, as given in the Probate record of James Patterson whose will was probated 26 November 1836. James Patterson was married to Martha. I do not think any children were born to this union. James lists his brothers as Thomas, John, and William. His sisters are Susannah Patterson (widow of Robert Patterson, deceased) and Margaret Robison (widow of John Patterson, deceased). No children were listed in his will.
