Jesse was the son of Charles Patty and Barbara Jane Turner.
History of Winston County, vol 1, by Jennie Newsom Hoffman, page 97.
Colonel Jesse W. Patty, born in 1806, left his Chester District, South Carolina, home when twelve years of age and traveled on horseback to Sheffield, Alabama, securing employment on a farm at $8 a month. His salary grew until at 18 years of age he became overseer and drew $500 a year.
In 1836, he entered the service of the United States for the Seminole War, after which he returned to Sheffield and engaged in the mercantile business until he was forced to pay a note which he had signed for a friend. This took all his resources and about 1840 he moved to Mississippi, made a new start, and in a short time became a prosperous farmer in Winston County. He married Sarah Pettigrew and raised a family of nine boys and three girls.
