Yes, I'm working on building the tree upwards from what I have. He was a captain for the Confederate States of America during the US civil war. I have the front page article of the local paper from his death but not the certificate. It only mentions his decendants & some very interesting stories. I'll have to figure out how to scan & attach it. It's been copied & faxed several times, so it's in pretty poor shape.
I have info on Lot Mills Patterson. I live where he settled in Canada. E mail firstname.lastname@example.org
