Robert Patterson
Birth: Mar., 1827
Lancashire, England
Death: Jul. 28, 1902
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Robert was the son of Thomas Patterson and his mother MAY have been Elizabeth Barlowe. If I have identified the correct family in 1841, Robert was 15 and likely his sister was Ellen age 10. They were residing with Nanny Barlowe and no further relatives identified. This implies to me that both parents had died.

Robert and Jane were married on Jan 23 1848 in Preston, Penwortham, Lancashire Co., England and James Fawcett and Eliza Reynolds were their witnesses. The 1850 census relfects that their oldest daughter Eliza Jane was born in Sept 1849 in Ireland. Robert had been born in England and Jane in Ireland. If the 1850 census is accurate, they moved to Ireland at least for a short period before emigrating. Robert and Jane immigrated to PA in 1849 where they made a home for their family, while Robert worked for the railroads.

Children of this marriage were Eliza Jane born Sept 1849 and died likely before 1875. Anna Patterson was born Mar 1855 and died Dec 1 1924. Virginia Jane Patterson has a link to this memorial. James Patterson was born abt 1959 and was living at the time of Robert's death in 1902. Matthew Patterson has a link to this memorial. His mother Jane likely died shortly after his birth.

Robert married Nancy McCabe Feb 10 1864 in Pittsburgh. Their oldest daughter Georgianna was born shortly thereafter and died between 1880 and 1887, John Patterson was born Jan 1869 in PA married a lady named Ina. They had four children before he moved to California where he died on July 29, 1935 in Los Angeles Co., California. Mary Patterson was born Sep 19 1872 in PA, married Ebenezer Alymore Russell and died Jul 21 1941 in Los Angeles Co., CA. Robert Patterson, Jr was born Mar 1 1875 in PA married Emma Louise Flaccus and died Oct 18, 1938 in Los Angeles Co., CA. The youngest child was Elizabeth Patterson born in Nov 1875 in PA and died after 1910.
