Nicholas A. Van Patten (1790- 19 May 1847) was the Blacksmith.
I had deglected to mention that James and Adelina had 5 children. George, Margaret, Frank Eugene, Esther/Maryetta and Adelbert.
That is probably the reason for the confusion. This family had a story that James came from Holland by packet boat (small ship mail ship), prehap how the family came to Cayuga County (James was born in Ira.)
