Sandi, I hope you're still on here at this late date. I am a descentant of Peter Parker Patterson, who ended up quite a patriarch in Osage Co. Missouri. I have been trying to find out more about the family prior to him, and have just tumbled to the possibility that John D. was his father. I have traced Peter back to Gibson Tennessee, but have lost the trail befor there. Can you help me with migration across Tennessee and who were the adults involved.
