My father is the son of John Langely Patton and Louellen (name changed from Mousie?) Shepard. He was born in David KY.
Any help with any corrections or additions appreciated. Mainly Im trying to trace back the Patton name to find where we originated, but I am also intersted in any info on both the Shepards and Pattons.
