New York, USA
Death: Feb. 12, 1930

Richard B. Patterson II (1869-1930) was a shoe salesman. (b. September 17, 1865; Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA - d. February 13, 1930; Ridley Park, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA)

He was the son of Richard B. Patterson I (1835-1908); and Cornelia Betts (1837-1917) aka Cordelia Betts.

He was born on September 17, 1865 in Manhattan, New York City, New York according to his death certificate. He was born in April of 1869, in Pennsylvania according to the 1900 US census.

Richard had the following siblings: Cornelia M. Patterson (1863-1940) who married Edwin Webb; Robert Patterson; Grace E. Patterson; and Louise Patterson.

They appear in the 1880 US Census living in Manhattan in New York.

First marriage:
There is a "Richard B. Patterson, Jr." from New York that married a "Blanche E. Kingsmore" on November 09, 1884 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If this is our Richard B. Patterson, Jr., it would explain his children, John and Leona.

John Patterson (1886-?) who left the family and was not heard from again; and Leona Veronica Patterson (1892-1963) aka Leonora Patterson, who married John Joseph Hammelbacher I (1885-c1947).

Second marriage:
Richard married Mary Ellen Burke (1870-1957) aka Mamie Burke, on July 21, 1892 in Jersey City, New Jersey. His marriage certificate lists this as his first marriage, but that is an error.

Jersey City:
Richard and Mary appear in the 1900 US Census living at 28 Atlantic Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey. In the household are their two children age 10 and 12, but Richard and Mary have only been married for 9 years, and both list this as their first marriage on their marriage certificate. In 1910 Richard and Mary have moved to Delaware County, Pennsylvania and have the following people in the household: William Burke (1845-1919) and Margaret Kane (1834-1912), who are Mary's parents; and Leona and John, their children. In 1920 the family is now living on Cedar Road in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the household now includes: John Joseph Hammelbacher I who had married Leona; and John and Leona's child: John Joseph Hammelbacher II (1918-?) who disappeared.

Richard Patterson died on February 13, 1930 in Ridley Park, Delaware County, Pennsylvania of "arteriosclerosis and acute myocarditis with chronic bronchitis".

Richard was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon, Pennsylvania on February 15, 1930. There is no marker for any of the people in this plot. Richard is buried with: William Burke; and Margaret Kane, who are his in-laws.

His widow moved to Villanova Avenue in Mailmont, Ridley Park Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

Richard B. Patterson II (1869-1930) was married to the great-grandaunt of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ). He was the grandfather of Mary Hammelbacher Bartalone (1923- ).
