About Samuel Patterson

LOUDOUN 1761 & 1762: Index to The Tithables of Loudoun County, Virginia and to Slaveholders and Slaves, 1758-1786; Margaret Lail Hopkins, Genealogical Publishing Co., 1991; introduction; "In some instances during the Colonial era in Virginia, Anglican Church parishes were created by the General Assembly years before counties were established as units of government. During the interim, the parish vestries performed many civil functions such as the assessment or collection of taxes, or 'tithes' as they were called then. Such was the case when Cameron Parish was created in 1748, nine years ahead of the establishment of Loudoun County in 1757." p. 60: "Patterson (Paterson), Samuel 61-62."

1762 LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA: John T. Phillips, II, Historians Guide to Loudoun County, Virginia, Vol 1, 1757-1766, at 508: "September 15, 1762. Mary Patterson, the widow of Samuel Patterson, deceased, relinquishes her right of Administration in favor of Hezekiah Boone, with Philip Noland and Robert Popkins as his Securities. Book B., p. 56." The index to this book also mentions: Patterson & Adam (merchants); Fleming; John; Joseph; Mary; Samuel and William.

1762 LOUDOUN: Virginia County Court Records, Deed Abstracts of Loudoun County, Virginia (1757-1762); compiled by Ruth and Sam Sparacio, 1320 Mayflower Drive, McLean, Virginia, 22101; p.116; DAR Library. "Samuel Pattison" is listed in the Clerk's Fee Book for the Year 1762. p123, "Hezekiah Boone (admr. of Samuel Patterson)" and "William Kirk (admr of Mary Patterson deced)." Who was this Mary Patterson? Uncertain.

5 May 1776: The Will of Robert Patterson, Exeter Township, Berks County, PA. Berks County Wills, B-45. "Item I also Give and Bequeathe unto my Grandson Benjamin Patterson Son of my Son Samuel Patterson Deceased the Sum of five Shillings also I Give and Bequethe to my Grandson Robert Patterson Son of my Son Samuel Patterson Deceased the Sum of five Shillings."

NOTES: Inventory of Estate of Mary Patterson, Loudoun County, Virginia, 1763. John Marc Wheat has in his possession a copy of a property inventory that may have been made to pay estate taxes. This could indicate that Samuel Patterson died in 1763, when Mary Anna Boone Patterson removed to Bald Eagle, Pennsylvania to be closer to her family. According to Ansel McCall's "Benjamin Patterson: The Soldier and Scout", he "Samuel" died in August 1763.

But see letter from Dorie Hopkins. Mary Boone's husband stated as William Patterson, a veteran of the French & Indian War and commanded at battle of Muncy Hills. The source appears to be J.F. Meginness, Otzinachson: A History of the West Branch Valley of the Susquehanna. Republished in 1991 by the Lycoming County Historical Society, 858 W. Fourth Street, Williamsport, PA 17701-5824. (717)

326-3326. In section on the Battle of Muncy Hills, cites a "Capt. Patterson." In other section, cites a "William Patterson" who bought property. JMW thinks this Patterson is not the husband of Mary Boone.
