Came across your message by accident. I am currently inputting Patons to my tree although they are a very remote link to my main tree of Blyth and Hornes from Fife.
I only yesterday was tracing the family of Robert Paton born c1817 in Wemyss Parish in Fife, later moved his family to Glasgow. Still searching the censuses for full details but this Robert Paton's parents were John Paton, a grocer and Elizabeth Braid.
Is this the same family you mention in your messGE??
