I am hoping that someone has information on Joseph Patton that married Margaret Crawford. He had one son that I know of: Joseph Rutherford Patton.
Joseph Rutherford Patton was born about 1780. He married Mary "Polly" Erwin. She died May 24, 1866 in Burke County.
Joseph Patton and Margaret Crawford are my 5X great-grandparents.
Margaret Crawford was also married to Alexander Erwin.
Denise, I have found a Mary Patton on the Burke Co., NC census of 1850.
Mary Patton 66
Mary Bouchelle 39
Evalissa " 18
Margaret " 13
I need help with both of theses Marys.
I am pretty sure that Joseph Patton died during the Revolutionary War. In fact, according to family legend, Margaret met her second husband, Alexander Erwin, when he returned his horse to her.
You may be able to find more information on him through the DAR or her pension (if she filed for one)
