A Patriot's Granddaughter
Welcome to my home page. My name is Judy and I am the 5th great-granddaugther of Michael Hillegas, the First Treasurer of the United States and a 4th great-granddaughter of Col. John Patton of Revolutionary War fame. These pages are dedicated to the memory of all our ancestors. I became interested in genealogy only recently but I have discovered a wealth of history. I've also located many distant cousins. Along with the Hillegas and Patton families, I am also doing research on the Anthony, Powers, Dale, Hollingsworth and Pennington families. If you think we might be related, I'd love to hear from you!
My parents on their wedding day,
