Hello, my name is Linda Patton, aka Susie, and I am a family genealogist, and have been working on this project for over 30 years, too little time, and sooo many ancestors!!!
Until I am able to spend more time getting a proper page done, I will simply list the oldest ancestor that I have found on some of my families:
PATTON - Alfred Patton (Patten) born about 1802 KY, resided in Union and Webster Cos., KY between 1830 and 1870 when we lose him and his second wife Mahala. I am descended from his first wife, Sarah Davis.
McDOWELL - William McDowell, born about 1796 in South Carolina, resided briefly in Marshal County, AL, somewhere in TN, and then moved west in about 1855 where he died. His wife was Jane Collins, and we are told she was previously married to a Robinson, but have not been able to locate a record.
BARNES - Adam Barnes, resided in Ohio and was married to Rhoda Lee, daughter of William Lee (NOT the one related to George Washington). Their descendants lived in Wayne County, Indiana, and moved west through Kansas, and ended up in Oklahoma, some near Garber, and my branch in Pawnee and Creek Counties.
ALLEN - Zerah Allen, resided in Maury County, TN, moved into Arkansas into Randolph County, and has many descendants there....will be adding more as time permits.
SKEEN - James Skeen born about 1795 in Pennsylvania or Virginia, lived in eastern Tenn., and eventually moved into Lawrence County, Indiana. His son James Skeen married Frances
