We are currently researching the Patterson, Ragland, Dycus, and Glass families of Middle and Western Tennessee. We have much information on the Ragland family. We can go back to pre-1500's. We have much information on the Patterson family; however, we are stumped in regards to Franklin Pierce Patterson I, born in Wilson County, Tennessee September 28,1855, son of John Pinkney Patterson. He married Elizabeth Organ Ragland September 24, 1884. We have much information concerning his life; however, we have no idea what became of him. We cannot locate a will, a burial site, nor anything about him after 1890. Any help anyone may have would be appreciated.
We also seek information concerning John Wesley Dycus of Tipton County, Tennessee.
We also seek information concerning Lillie Mai Richardson, born December 10, 1890 in Tipton Co. Tennessee. Her father was Douglas Richardson and Eliza Shipley. She was married to Franklin Pierce Patterson II on August 6, 1905.
