I'm not sure if this will help you any at all with your trace.But I remember being raised with my family knowing very well,the Pattons of Richwoods.Clyde Patton owned and operated his own small mercantile.It reminded me of the Olsens Mercantile on Little House On The Prarie.I was a little girl.My family bought things on credit with him as many folks did in Richwoods.He had a brother named Elvin Patton who fathered a daughter with my grandma Blanche Thurmond after my grandpa died from TB in 1959.Although the daughter carried my granpas last name,she is Elvin Pattons biological daughter(I believe his only one).She was born in/around 1963/64. Im not sure how Minerva would be related to these Patton boys but I'll bet my bottom dollar she is.Her name sounds vaguely familiar to me.My momma was a fanatic when it came to speaking of everyone she knew in her hometown of Richwoods.And,she spoke of them ALL the time.She had many special memories of her childhood,I literally believe she knew everyone in Richwoods back then.Too bad she passed away this past April,I know she could help you.
