I'm looking for ancestral information on James Patterson, b. abt. 1808; married Catherine Wheeler on November 14, 1835; they had ten children.I know most of his descendants, but can't find who his parents were.I can't find his death record, nor his wife's.Some of his descendants still live on family land in and around Laurel, Indiana.Because they sat right on the county line, sometimes the family was enumerated in the Columbia township (placing them in Fayette County) and sometimes they were enumerated in Jackson township (placing them in Franklin County).
Their ten children for reference: George W. Patterson (my line), b. abt 1837; m. Barbara E. Harry John Patterson , b. abt. 1839 Zippora Patterson, b. abt. 1842; m. William E. Jones Sep. 8, 1858 Polly Patterson, b. abt. 1844 Elizabeth Patterson, b. abt. 1845 James Patterson, b. abt 1847 Isaac Patterson, b. March 1849; m. Eliza Brown Apr 9, 1885 William Patterson, b. Aug 16, 1852; m. Martha M. Mohr Jan 21, 1898 Henry Patterson, b. March 1861; m. Phoebe Rybolt abt 1880 Fannie Patterson, b. abt 1862; m. Omer Cook Dec 15, 1881
