RE: Koontz headstones
Alexander and Elizabeth Koontz are my maternal GGgrandparents. Their daughter Susan married Benjamin Sanders, who lived in Johnson County also, in 1885 and then they moved to Pine Bluff, Ark. I don't know much about the Koontz family and am still trying to sort out the sometimes contradictory information in various family trees that have been posted to Ancestry.

Re: Walter Northern
I have found him in the database at Maple Hill Cemetery. However his grave is unmarked and the exact location is unknown according to the office. Since there are over 100 acres here there is no way to locate it. Historically he could be anywhere in in sections 1 to 15. Many civil war dead were buried here as well and most are unmarked. Many Yankee soldiers buried here were moved by family members after their interrments here. Good luck on your other searches.

RE: Leo Wiliam Bedford Sr
I read something on the Find A Grave forums today and thought I'd pass it along, since I reported that dupe to you. Sometimes the Find A Grave program "hiccups" and creates 2 identical memorials!

Also, Find A Grave supposedly has a "De-Dupe" program that checks for dupes.

George Alexander Pattillo


" George Alexander Pattillo, b. ca. 1720 in Scotland; d. 9 June 1798, Charlotte Co., Va. Married Martha Varner (Varnor, Vernon) of Penn. in Va., 1 July 1757. She was b. 1 Feb. 1735.

Came from Dundee, Angus County, Scotland to America with his brother, Henry Pattillo in 1740. George and his younger brother, Henry, had supposedly been in Penn. before moving to Va. They were closely associated with a large group of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who had emigrated at an earlier date, by way of Penn., to the southern part of Virginia. The group we speak of settled in and around Cub Creek, Charlotte Co., then Lunenburg Co. John CaIdwell seemed to be the leader of this particular group as the area near Cub Creek was known as the "Caldwell Settlement"

William Caldwell executed a deed, 2 Apr. 1751, in Lunenburg Co., Va., for the conveyance of one acre of ground on his land for a burial place to thirty-one men in his neighborhood. Among these men whose families we find closely associated with the Pattillo family were David Logan, James Logan, John Middleton, Isaac Vernon (Varner, Varnon) and Henry Pattillo. (Va. Hist. Mag., Vol. XVIII, pp. 40-41)

The first record we have of George Pattillo is in Lunenburg Co., Va., where he was listed as a tithable in 1752 by William Caldwell. The surname was spelled Portiilo, The name of John Varnon follows that of George, (Sunlight on the Southside, L. C. Bell, p. 187).


1763 - George PATTILLO sells Feather beds and Furniture to Robert Hastie & Co. for the sum of 20 Pds.

1764 - George PATTILLO acquires a land Patent in Lunenburg Co. on the branches of Little Louse Creek. Sum of 40 shillings for 400 acs. 27 June.

CHARLOTTE CO., VA. RECORDS (Formed 1764-5 from Lunenburg Co.) 1765 - 6 Aug. George PATTILLO and Isaac Vernon mentioned in a court proceeding.

- i July. George PATTILLO and David Caldwell to John Holt. 40 Pds. for 540 acs. (DB 1, p. 42).

1767 - George signs as a witness to David Caldwell's will. 6 Mar. 1770 - 2 July. George witness for John Sandefer.

1774 -- George PATTILLO paid for schooling and boarding Anne Jackson, orpha: of William Jackson, dec'd. Theodorick Baker, her guardian. (Charlotte Co. Guardian Accts, - Film 7321, pt. 1, p. 46 (?).

1775 - 1 May. George purchases land on east side of Turnip Creek from John White. 221 acs, for 16 Pds. (DB 3, p. 511). 1781 - George exempted from payment of levees. 2 Apr. 1782 - George enumerated in tax list as head of household of 12. (If Geo. was a schoolmaster, some of the people enumerated in his household may have been students. It was customary for schoolmasters to give students room and board. Also see 1774.) 1783 - George is plaintiff in case against T. Wright. 5 May. 1788 - 5 Apr.; rec. 7 Apr. - George sells 221 acs. to Wm. Armistead for 200 Pds. (DB 6, p. 17).

Notes (con't)

(From Melba C. Crosse book)

"Mrs. Mattie Janet Miller, youngest daughter of Rev. Samuel Pattillo, son of George,wrote a history of the Pattillo family. In this she states the following: "The following facts are from my father, Samuel Pattillo. 'My father, George Pattillo, aged about 20, and his brother Henry Pattillo, about 18 years old, came to America in the year 1740. My father had not been in America a great while before he was married to Martha Varner of Penn, He afterwards settled in Charlotte Co., Va., where he reared the most of his family, five sons and three daughters their names as follows: James, William, David, John and Samuel, Sarah, Mary and Jane. My father's brother, Henrv Pattillo, settled in North Carolina, and in time became an eminent Presbyterian minister. He married and reared several children. All of the Pattillos in America are descendants of these two brothers, the most of them being those from George Pattillo, my father who was a devout, holy nan, a Wesleyan Methodist, my mother of the same faith. My father, Samuel Pattilio was a Methodist preacher more than forty years before he was called to his reward in 1844. He was twice married; first to Frances Hall, by whom there were nine children. Their names: George Alexander, Leroy, Martha Reid, Wesley, Simeon, James, Elizabeth, Urban and Fannie. His second wife was Martha Bailey, by whom there were eight children, (three died in infancy), their names: Samuel Henry, Mary Louise, Robert Fletcher, Benjamin ;Upheus and h•fatde Janet."

(Signed) M. J. Miller

The first portion of this history by M. J. Miller has been included in the first chapter of this book.

George Pattillo gave his daughter Jane the middle name of JOHNSTONE. His brother, Henry, named a son William JOHNSTONE Pattillo. He, too, had a daughter named Jane who was a namesake of his mother. Was Jane, the mother of George and Henry, a JOHNSTONE before her marriage.

George Alexander Pattillo and Martha Varner had the following children whose names and birth dates were taken from the Bible of John Varner Pattillo:

A. James Pattillo, b. 8 Aug. 1759.

B. Sarah Pattillo, b. 1 May 1760.
C. William Henry Pattillo, b. 31 May 1762.
D. David Pattillo, b. 5 Oct. 1764.
E. John Varner Pattillo, b. 9 Oct. 1766.
F, Mary Pattillo, b. 13 Sept. 1768.
G. Samuel Pattillo, b. 25 Jan. 1771.
H, Martha Pattillo, b. 7 Aug. 1773.
I. Jane Johnstone Pattillo, b. 9 Apr. 1779.

This Bible is now (ca 1960) owned by Arthur Pattillo (address unknown). The information was copied from a source sheet submitted to the Salt Lake City Archives by Wade Hayes of Beaumont, Texas"

Marriage bond dated 5 July 1784; sur. Anthony North. (Marriage Bonds - Charlotte Co., T/11., C. L. Knorr, p. 64).

James was 16 yrs. old at the beginning of the American Revolution and was 23 at its close. He, no doubt, served in the war as he continued in the military service until his death. Ne is not to be confused, however, with his cousin, James Patillo, who served three years as a sergeant and then as a commissary officer.
The first list of Justices of the Peace for Charlotte Co,, Va., was submitted to the governor 25 Oct. 1784. In the first additional list of J. P.s returned 1 Apr. 1790, James Pattillo was included among the group. However, when the third additional List of Justices was returned 13 July 1796, it was recorded that "James Pattillo moved out of County". (Wm. & M., Vol. 21, p. 179).

William Caldwell, before moving to Kentucky in 1793, granted Power of Attorney to James in order that he could handle his business affairs for him in Va.

Notes (con't)

On the motion of James Pattillo, the Court of Charlotte Co., appointed him guardian of ~3eorge Hays and

Mary Ann Hays, orphans of Richard Hays, dec'd, "in the place of James Hayse the former guardian who appeared in open court and resigned his guardianship of the said orphans, , the said Pattillo giving security, whereupon he together with Russell Brown and William Paulett Harvey his securities entered into and acknowledged their hand according to the law for that purpose." (CO Recs., Bk. 9, p. 154).

Rev. Samuel and others purchased a piece of land in Newton Co., Ga., to build a house of worship for the Methodist Episcopal Church from Julian and Qoe Bailey, 9 Mar. 1~30. This same year, Samuel Pattillo of Walton Co. purchased land in Covington, Newton Co., Ga., fbr himself. (Film No. 42492, pt. 5, SLC) Some descendants of Rev. Samuel Pattillo have stated that he was buried behind the pulpit of the Pattillo Memorial Methodist Church, Covington, Ga. Yet, in the old part of West View Cemetery, Covington, Ga., there is a head stone bearing the inscription of Rev. Samuel Pattillo June 25, 1771;d. Sept. 14, 1841. The headstone for his second wife, Martha Bailey, reads "Martha Patillo -- Aug. 7, 1790 - Sept. 14, 1842. The announcement of Mrs. Pattillo's death appeared in the Southern Christian Advocate, 21 Oct. 1842. It stated that "Mrs. Martha Patillo, widow of Rev, Samuel Patillo, died Sept. 15, 1842. Her husband died recently at Covington, Newton Co., Ga. beyond his three score and ten years." (Ga. Mag., F. Huxton, 1961-62, p. 70)
