Hello Lisa,

just noticed your decade ago post at concerning john melton patterson family.

Nancy S Patterson is my great great grandmother. She came from Christmasville TN with her father Arthur and perhaps her brother John Melton to Leon Co, TX and there married my gg grandfather Mark S. Cooper about 1849. I believe Arthur died there about 1850 about the time J.Melton moved to Parker Co, TX.

Nancy had two children in my line Elizabeth A Cooper and Nathaniel Alexander Cooper whose son Hugh J Cooper was my grandfather and a Dallas policeman in 1910. Nancy married twice more after Mark died about 1855 thereabouts. Nancy married a DeMoss and a Seapol{uncertain spelling, and untraceable so far. She had a son with each of the two husbands. The children's names were malcolm and ernie.

Her marriage to DeMoss was in either La or Ark, my memory doesn't serve me just now. DeMoss soon died and then she moved back to Texas apparently living for a time with her brother Kenneth Patterson in Austin County, TX. I have not yet found her final resting place. nor that of my gg grandfather Mark S. Cooper.

The pattersons apparently have a rich history back thru the Battle of King's Mtn in NC. and Arthur senior was Irish.

you can contact me at

cousin Will Cooper
