I have not been able to find the Robert S Paterson family on the 1900 census. Can you help me? I have Robert Spittal Paterson Born about 1836 in Glasgow, LanarkshireDied 1912 in Osage County Kansas, USA and Margaret Walker Born about 1834 in Edinburgh, Scotland U.K. This is from an Ancestry.com tree I think by a Thompson.
The B.Robert Paterson was from the 1920 not the 1910 census and in 1930 the family is listed as Peterson in Seattle King WA. Census. Robert B was deaf. Have you heard that? His daughter Mary is still living in Washington State, she is in her 90's.
My cousin Jerry Paterson is the son of Charles W. and grandson of Robert B. He asked me to see if I could find anything for him. He lives near Seattle WA. Where are you located?
