Mr. Samuel Edward Patterson was born August 1, 1885 in Oconee County, Seneca, South Carolina. His parents were George and Rachel (Fleming) Patterson. His paternal grandparents were Jack and Mariah Patterson. He was the last to pass of his siblings at the age of 72. His siblings were a brother, Stokes Patterson (born in September 1879); his sister, the only girl, Janie Patterson, born 1883; brother, Arthur Patterson, born 1889; brother, John L. Patterson, born July 15,1891; brother, Henry Patterson, 1984; brother, Willie Patterson, born 1896. He had formerly lived in Wheeler County, Georgia, where he was married to Eliza Wilson Patterson. They had four children--William Patterson (deceased); Morris Brown Patterson (living); Mayo Patterson (McRae)(deceased); and Matthew "Boy" Patterson, who died during his service in WWII.

Sam Patterson was my grandfather. He had one eye, due to an accident that occurred when he and one of his brothers was hunting for quail. I was just told this story by my father, who is one of Samuel's sons.

My father attended his father's funeral in 1957, in Greenville, South Carolina.
