I'm in search of some very elusive pattersons could you share what info you have on pattersons? here's what I have

Turner patterson is my g.g.g.grandfather who married a
Mary. Mary's last name isn't verified as of yet. I
have found 2 record for Turner Patterson being married
in Tennesseeto, one was to a Martha ? and the other to
a Mary ?. Both marriages took place in Tennessee and
I'm not sure if they are the same turner. I have a
listing of Turner either being married or born in 1810
Appomattox Co. Virginia, no evidence this could be my
turner other than the date and state location could be

I have googled this one to death and only find a
couple of listings with Turner. I have a copy of my
g.g.grandfathers marriage certificate (William T.
Patterson) which lists Turner and Mary as his parents.
William T. lists him as being born in Davidson County
Virginia but married in Wise County Virginia. I can't
find any references to davidson county virginia, only
davidson county North Carolina. The only record I
found was a listing of marriages for wise county
virginia on (I am willing to send along
a scanned copy of the marriage licenses for both
william T and Joseph Curtis)

LDS database lists the following as children of Turner
and Mary: (I dont' know if this listing is my turner)
a susan or susannah b. 1849 Tenn
John b. 1833 Tenn
Elizabeth b.1833 Tenn
Mary b. 1839 Tenn
William b. 1847 Tenn (my william was 52 on his
marriage certificate in 1890 so this date doesn't
Caroline b. 1849 Tenn

The database also lists the following as Children of
Turner and Martha Patterson as:
Mary b. 1836 Tenn
William N. b. 1837 Tenn (this date matches my william
but not the middle initial)
Archy b. 1843 Tenn
Charles A. b. 1850 Tenn
John W. b. 1831 NCar

William T. Patterson (my g.g.grandfather) b. 1837 or
1838 who married Nancy Sergent on 2/17/1890 in Wise
Co. Virginia. certificate signed by clerk J.E. Lipps.
Certificate states William's place of birth Davidson
Co. Virginia. Occupation as Farmer.

William was listed on his marriage certificate as a
widower at the age of 52 when he and nancy got
married. He had one child from the previous
relationship, a Joseph Curtis Patterson b. 8/6/1888 in
Tennessee but resided in Wise Co. Virginia. died

Any other children between William T. and Nancy
Sergent are unknown.
by me at this time.

Joseph Curtis was widowed to unknown woman
1 child from that relationship shows a William R.
Patterson, may have been William Robert Curtis

Joseph Curtis Patterson then married Hattie Stapleton
in Wise Co. Virginia. Certificate date states Oct. 18,
1914 but is then later signed by minister on Oct. 25,
1914. Married by preacher Henry Wells, clerk signed as
DA. Mullins. Certificate lists Joseph C. as a

Hattie had 1 child from David Trivet named Rose.

Hattie and Joseph Curtis together had
Joseph Glen
Benjamin Franklin
Daniel Carroll
John Henry
Nancy Ellen

Joseph Glen then married Bertha Fleming and they had
the following children:

Jack patterson
diane patterson
patsy patterson
candy patterson (my mother)
linda patterson

I could go on with the rest of the current family but
I want to go backwards so I'll stop there.

Also, I was told a story by my g.uncle B. F. Patterson
the other day and he said joseph curtis (his father,
my g.g.father) only mentioned his father once and that
he said his father (william t.) had left the family
when he (joseph c.) was only 13 or 14 and that at some
point an unknown brother of William T. had stolen a
100 acre farm from Joseph C. and his unknown siblings
because they were only children

My 2nd cousin informed me the other day also that his
mother told him a story that at some point Hattie
asked joseph curtis to go get her some flour to finish
cooking breakfast. he left and returned a whole year
later....but didn't forget the flour. it is unknown
where he went and what possibilities that may hold.
