Just to not drive everyone crazy while doing corrections; the correct number of children James Wesley Van Patten and Mary McGillvia had were three;
1. Henrietta "Etta" b.circa 1866 married Thomas B. Howell of Red Creek, NY
2. William Murray "Murray" b. circa 1868 lived in Wolcott
3. Emma Maude (Emmice) b. circa 1873 married Charles Wright of Red Creek.
The three had 14 children between them when their father died in 1917.
