To all of you researching The Hugh Patton and Eliza Hanna of Washington County, Pa. of the late 1700s:
From various sources, Hugh Patton was born in Ireland, but I dont have his parents. I have neither a birthdate nor birthplace. He does, however, show up in Lancaster County, Pa. in 1776. By 1791 he is a property owner in Cecil Township, Washington County, Pa. Some sources have him registered with the DAR having served with the local militia (from nearby Chartiers Township). From this I have found him as participating in some way with the Gnaddhutten Moravian Indian massacre in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. I am searching for his grave and suspect it is in Mt. Pleasant Township, Washington County, Pa. along with his wife.
Hugh married Elizabeth Hanna (daughter of James and Martha Hanna immigrants from Ireland). She was born in Lancaster County, Pa. about 1757. They were married in Lancaster County in 1778.
The information about their children is that there were eleven and I only have the names of four of them:
Hugh Patton b. 1809 Mt. Pleasant Twp., Washington Co., Pa. d. 1860 Guernsey Co.,O. (m. Maria ?)
William Patton b. 1796 Mt. Pleasant Twp., Washington Co.,Pa. d. 1860 Guernsey Co., O. (m. Grace ?)
Mary Patton (m. William Eakin)
Nathan Patton (m. Margaret Eakin)
Martha Patton (the youngest child) b. 1794 Mt. Pleasant Twp. Washington Co., Pa. d. 1884 Millersville, Guernsey Co., O. (m. George Akin)
(All the Akins-Eakins were siblings).
That's all I have. I'm still working on it.
