I am looking for William Peter Patterson, born 1840 in Hobart Tasmania, son of Capt. Peter Patterson and Margaret Skinner Patterson. Lived in Oakland California probably from 1861 to 1883 maybe with his widowed mother. In the summer of 1883 he died in Victoria BC Canada while visiting his sister. I don't know his occupation but he may have been a mariner like his father. Help will be most appreciated.
