I would appreciate if you could look up a Gerge W Patton. Listed belos is all of the information I have on him.
I have a "family heirloom" that has the name, birth place and birth date of my paternal great great grandfather.
He was born 21 March 1805 in Rockbridge, Virginia.
I can find him in Lebanon, Ohio, in 1828 where he married Sarah Church.
He went on to live in Mainville, Warren Ohio, where he, and Sarah, had 6 children: Ephraim Sanders (1836), Matilda Esther (19 July 1838 - 1916), Seth (1841 - 20 May 1864, died in the Civil War, Henry C (07 Sept 1844 - 18 July 1913), Silas D (23 Jan 1846 - 14 Oct 1928) and H Jane (1849 - 1907).
George and Sarah moved to Tipton Twp, Cass County, Indiana, before the end of the Civil War. This is where he died, 18 April 1875.
I can not prove, but I think his father was a William Patton and that he had a brother SL Patton.
(The name Silas, I believe, comes from SL Patton . . and was passed to one of George's sons and on to a grand son.)
I would appreciate any help on locating the links of my family to Rockbridge . . . or perhaps to a county close to it. I have read that, some times, a birth certificate / church record, would be made in another county seat that woud have been closer to the home of the family.
Thank you for helping.
