Yes, I do.. Mr. Patten is William Patten, son of William and Ruth Wheelock Patten, and grandson of Dr. Eleazar Wheelock of Dartmouth College fame. The school started with William's sisters teaching girls. When William Jr. completed his college education at Dartmouth, under his grandfather's watchful eye, he joined his sisters and expanded the school to include young gentlemen. This is recorded in the book, "Memoirs of Ruth Patten," by William Patten Jr., Hartford 1834. The book is a tribute to his mother, and is very compelling. You can find it on Google Books.
