Here are open questions about our family.

There are two questions about my Robert A Patrick ancestors.

The first and most recent one is about my Grandfather Robert Alexander Patrick.

He evidently left the wife and two children sometime before 1920 as he is missing from the Fed Census.

I have a letter see (Patrick-Family Mysteries-11.jpg) my Grandmother wrote to find out if she had been divorced in Illinois. (The original marriage was in Illinois.)

I have a few letters from his first cousin Robert Patrick Stockton to my Grandmother Gertrude Tallis Patrick trying to locate him and the said reasons for finding him. (see images tab)

In 1933 my Father wrote trying to find him or at least find out what happened to him.( I don't know if this letter was ever sent it is not a carbon copy or a photograph of a letter it is an original typewritten letter and may have been a practice one.) My father always told us as children that his father had died when he was young.

I have at this point not been able to find anything out about his death or burial. There was one Robert A Patrick record I did find where they didn't know anything about the person who died just his name. The age for this record seem's wrong but it's as close as I've found. see the archives link -

The second question involves my second great grandfather, Robert A Patrick. I know his approximate dates but not where he really came from and not where he is buried. I recently discovered that his daughter Emma put on a 1880 Fed census that he was from Scotland not Virginia. Every where else he is listed as coming from Virginia. I haven't any proof of either. I have his estate papers and have read them. He died shortly before they were probated but they do not give exact death and I haven't been able to find any burial information. I would really like to know where he is buried. He died in Mississippi before the civil war in the Jackson area. I recently found this entry and posted it on his page:

(There is an entry listed in the "Book Marriages and Deaths from Mississippi Newspapers Volume 3: 1813 - 1850 by Betty Couch Wiltshire c. 1989 ", pg. 84, October 29,1847 which reads: Died on Saturday last, Robert J. Patrick, Esq., for many years a resident of this city.)

Is this my Robert A not Robert J?? It is the correct time frame.
