    SAMUEL PATTERSON, one of the most successful agriculturists of West Bethlehem township, is a grandson of Thomas Patterson, who was born in Ireland, and came to this country with his family in about the year 1800. He went to New Orleans, where he was seized with the yellow fever, and coming back to Washington county, Penn., died.

    John Patterson, son of the pioneer, Thomas, settled upon the farm of one Noble, in Washington county, Penn., and soon afterward he purchased the farm which is now the home of his son Samuel. He married Jane, daughter of John Simpson, who resided in Greene county, Penn., and was also of Irish parentage, her father emigrating early in the history of Greene county, Penn. To them were born the following children: Catharine, wife of James Wherry, residing in Hillsboro; Rebecca, wife of John BUMGARNER; Elizabeth, wife of Levi Hopkins; Jane, wife of G.P. Baker; Sarah, wife of Levi Dawson; Andrew (deceased); John (deceased); Samuel, the subject of this biography; Mary Siberts, and Thomas, a minister of the Gospel at Waynesburg. At the time of his death, which occurred April 10, 1849, John Patterson owned 250 acres of land in Washington county, Penn., portions of which he purchased at $3. per acre. He erected the log dwelling in which his son Samuel now lives, and which is one of the oldest in Washington county. The nails used in its construction were purchased from a blacksmith at 12 1/2 cents per pound. He attended the subscription schools in the county, and at one time his master was the grandfather of the late J.G. Blaine, by name Gillespie.
    Sarah Ann Patterson (born 1819) married John Bumgarner, who was born in East Bethlehem twp, Washington co. Their first child was born in East Bethlehem twp in 1841. John and Sarah Ann lived in or near Millsboro, East Bethlehem twp, until late 1850 or early 1851 when they moved west to Amwell twp.

    Mary Patterson males one 5-9, one 15-19; females one <5, one 40-49.

    1850 census: The only Patterson in the search area was Jane Patterson, 57, in West Bethlehem.

    It is likely that the John Patterson 1830 is the same in 1840, who died prior to 1850 leaving a wife Jane; and that the John B Patterson of 1830 died before 1840 leaving a wife Mary. John B was likely the son of John.

    John B Patterson 1830 and Mary 1840 do not have daughters of the right age to be Sarah Ann wife of John Bumgarner.

    The John Patterson of 1830 and 1840 did have daughters of the right age.

    Soundex produces no hits in the target area for Peterson and other variations.
