James M. PATTERSON
I am trying to find info. on my great-uncle James M. Patterson.He was born 1877 in Lincoln Co., Tennessee to John William Patterson and Mary Jane Williams Patterson.His siblings William A. Patterson b. Fayetteville, Tennessee; John Tillman Patterson b. Lincoln Co., Tennessee; Dora Beatrice Patterson b. Alabama (probably Marshall Co.); Eliza Effie Patterson b. Alabama (probably Marshall Co.); and Harry Cleveland Patterson b. Marshall Co., Alabama 1891.
I have recently learned from family members that James M. Patterson died from drowning in the Tennessee River in Alabama as a young man.Probably before 1900....by that time the rest of the family had moved to Milam Co., Texas and was on the 1900 US census there.
Any help would be appreciated.From what we have always been told we are of indian heritage, and are possibly related to Chelnessa Patterson (Brice Edmonds) and Priscilla Patterson (Jeremiah LaFarlett)families.
