THE PATTERSON FAMILY

 

 

The Patterson Family is detailed and important enough to warrant this separate treatment as a portion of my overall Sharon Family History.

 

The Patterson family was Scotch Irish and came to America in the early 1700s arriving in the Port of Philadelphia. Like many others, the family came to Penn's Colony to escape persecutions at home and to find a better life in the New World.

 

The family of John Patterson came from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and moved to Orange County in North Carolina before the Revolution and eventually made their way a generation later to St. Louis County, Missouri. John Patterson's children, including my William Patterson remained in Florrisant, Missouri. The next generation, that of Lemuel James Patterson, went north into Illinois. It was there that Lemuel's daughter, Minerva Patterson, married John Jones. This marriage united my two great grandparents on my mother's side of the family.

 

Families that married into the Patterson family included Scottish nobility and famous frontier soldiers. The Patterson line is a distinguished one in my family.
