After looking through your Patterson's I doubt if we are related. However, if you have seen these names before please let me know. My tree is on Ancestry.com.
I'm trying to prove that Ernest Mathias Patterson is one person. The census shows him as Ernest Patterson or Mathias Patterson but I need to prove that Ernest Mathias is one person.
This group is in the area of Kentucky and Arkansas.
