Thanks for the info . Robert Henry was born in St Clairsville, not Wheeling . I have reports of both , just like his dad . Some reports say Wheeling , others McConnelsville, Ohio, I know his father was in St. Clairsville at time , unless they traveled to Wheeling for the birth . If I stated Kate Safford was born in Ohio , I must have been tired .I may have been talking about Robert Henry's parents. I've always known she was born outside Parkersburg. Back to Robert Henry Patterson . He had an uncle and a nephew with the same name . My main troubles are that five books and several articals or published journals all state his Grandfather Robert Patterson married Sarah Vanmeter in 1804 . .......and she had more than one child named Robert . That and the County and State changes of the time made it a hard search . It almost appears to be seperate family's however I've found large families with children with the same first name . Almost like George Foreman naming all his kid's George Foreman . There were four brothers and they all used the same family first names ......as did their cousins. James , Robert , John , William , with a few odd ones too of course . Robert Patterson's were very numerous even back then .....so were John's etc . A lot of Patterson history ( my Patterson's) can be found in the Thomas and Robert Browse Journals being kept at WVU library . I will get these books listed on my page sooner than later . But can be found on findagrave on my memorial to Senator Col. Robert Patterson , my G,G,G, Grandfather. and his Grandson's Patrick Harry McConnell Patterson. The memorial # to Senator Patterson is 127576233 -his bio has most of it transcribed and his son Robert Henry's is 20447534 . Thanks again for the comments and info .
regards , Robert C. Patterson - my find a grave ID is 48384747
