Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 277, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana

"A. L. PATTERSON was born in Kentucky December 19, 1815, and is the son of THOMAS and LUCY (DeWITT) PATTERSON, of Irish and French descent. They were among the pioneers of Cass County, Indiana, in 1833, and there they died. Until twenty years old, A. L. PATTERSON assisted on his father's farm and attended school, and then began learning the millwright's trade, working in the summer and teaching in the winter for five years. November 26, 1840, in Tippecanoe County, he married MRS. CLEMENTINE HARVEY, a native of Virginia; he served in the State Legislature two terms, 1849, 1850 and 1851, and was engaged in farming in Tippecanoe until 1866, when he came to Brookston and followed his trade; farmed and conducted a nursery in a small way, and in the spring of 1882 was elected Justice of the Peace, which office he still holds; he has also been a Notary Public of Prairie Township for fourteen years; he had also served as Justice of the Peace in Tippecanoe County, as Township Trustee and Treasurer of the Board. His first wife having died, he was married in 1850, to MRS. ELIZABETH LAYNE. This lady also died, and January 23, 1873, he married MRS. MARY FRENCH. There were born to him, by his first wife, four children - LUCY J., NANCY A., WILLIAM and MORINSA; his second wife had no children; his present wife has borne him two - MATTIE A. and MINNIE A. He is the owner of two good town lots, on one of which is his very pleasant residence."
