My g-g-grandfather was named John H. Patterson (I don't know his middle name). He was born about 1819 in North Carolina and died September 22, 1893. He married Susan Rowland (daughter of Pleasant Rowland) on April 16, 1845. He was a farmer in the Ragland District of Granville Co., NC and served in the Confederate Army. I am in hopes that my John is the brother of Angus Patterson who was born about the same time in Richmond County.

John & Susan's Children:
Mary                             b. 1846
James Pleasant        b. 1849 - d. 1924 (my g-grandfather)
Susan                             b. 1850
Edwin                             b. 1852
George                             b. 1854
John                             b. 1857

His son James Pleasant Patterson (b. January 23, 1849) was my g-grandfather. I would be very appreciative if you would please check your research to see if you have anything on this family. I have been searching for six years with no success to learn John's parents' names.

John may have had a brother named George Harris Patterson, but I'm not positive. Thank you for your efforts on my behalf.
