Jasper Patterson was the son of Greenup Bird Patterson and his wife Elizabeth Wigham Patterson. He grew up as a farmer and is listed on the 1900 census as a farmer in Hays County Texas with his wife Katie Hasson Tadlock. By the 1910 census he was listed as a blacksmith. I remember as a small child visiting Granite Oklahoma and being taken to see a wrought iron gate that he had crafted. His wife Katie died in 1913 from childbirth fever. He married again I'm not sure what her name is but she didn't live long. Jasper raised his kids mostly by himself with the help of family. 1920 census he was living with his oldest son and his wife. In the 1930 census he was living with his oldest daughter and her family in Indianapolis. He was listed as a blacksmith in an iron foundry. But had not worked the day before. (I found an article that referred to the foundry being closed during the depression and resuming production in 1932).

I met my grandfather in 1949 but he didn't remember my father so don't know much more. I remember my dad getting the phone call telling us he died, but I don't know exact date. A Cousin who went to the funeral told me he was buried in Rock Cemetery.

His children were: Greenup Bird Patterson
Maggie Patterson Ranck
Melvin Davis Patterson
Carter Patterson
Florence Patterson Pendergraft Hildenbrand
John Kenneth E Patterson

Grandpa Jasper: Remembering you today. Just realized you've been gone 50 years now. I didn't know you well, but I do remember you. I remember that my Dad cried when he got the phone call that you had passed. I think you must have been a good father.

Honoring my Grandfather's life and memory.Although your direct male line has pretty much petered out. You have a lot of descendants through your daughters and granddaughters. Rest in Peace.
