I would like to know more about this family (especially Daniel's parents) and would love to share pictures and stories. I do know that Daniel was a pioneer of Milwaukee Co. (early 1830s) but moved to Walworth County between 1850 and 1860 and that's where he remained.
Daniel Wright Patterson was born about 1810 in NY. He married Susan Burdick 9 Sep 1837 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee, WI. Susan was born 1817 in NY and died before 1880 in WI. Her parents were Paul Burdick and Rebecca Shaft.
Daniel and Susan had 8 children I'm aware of. Most of this information came from census searches.
