Alexandria Gazette 7/12/1856


Mr. Fielding A. Patterson has been appointed to a first-class clerkship, in the same office in the place of Mr. William R. Wilson; salary $1200 per annum.

There's a book on "The Patterson & Pattison family association : a contribution of genealogical records to old in the research on the names of Patterson"

It says that Alexander Patterson married 3rd wife Sarah Folkner. Alexander (8/30/1797-5/17/1870), son of Amasa Patterson, m 6/5/1817 1st wife Priscilla Crawford and had 7 children. His 2nd wife was Mrs. __________ Williams.

Fielding was b 1/12/1837 and married 4/1/1858 Mary S. Armiss. One child is listed, Sarah E. Patterson.

But then I found this-
Floridian and Advocate, Tallahassee, FL 1/24/1835 An Act of Divorce to Divorce Alexander Patterson and Eliza Patterson

So you know that wife #2 was Mrs. Eliza Williams
