unfortunate but this case is a bit exasperating ,the more i find ,the more
confusing it is.In a census record he has 2 males living with him ,they are
Nephews,In the next Census they are now his sons.There is a Mary Patterson died June 1986 Benton Arkansas.
There is a Mary Giles that marries a Man in Texas,but is the wrong one.
Sorry i have not solved your problem.
