Notes for Rebecca PATTERSON

Biographical Sketch (1972):81, p. 5. "Though no record of her marriage has been located, there appears no doubt that Rebecca Patterson, born about 1816, was a child of Adam Patterson and his second wife, Rebecca (Moore). About 1834 or 1835 she married William P. Morey, son of Abraham who had removed to Homer or nearby about 1824. The two families were neighbors. By 1840, their first two sons were born: Andrew J. Morey in 1836 and Wilson A. in 1838. Before 1848, the family had removed westward to Allen County, Ohio and took up land in that part which became Auglaize County. According to family record, William P. Morey died 14 March, 1852, his widow surviving him over forty-one years, dying 2 December 1893 in Auglaize County, Ohio."

1817 Birth:255 "Rebecca Morey was born July 25th 1817" is recorded in the Family Bible, passed down by Rebecca Patterson Morey to her grandson Jay Dewey Morey.

1820 U.S. Census:1483 Rebecca enumerated, along with her sister Hannah, as one of two females under the age of 10 in the household of her father Adam Patterson in Burlington Township, Licking County, Ohio. Their mother, Rebecca Moore, died the previous year and Adam had remarried to Ann Crow at the time of the census. Adam and Rebecca were married for just short of thirteen years (1805-1819) and produced three children, each living in the Patterson household in 1820: Ephraim, age 12; Hannah, age 8, and Rebecca, age 3. Also residing in the household were older step-sisters Lydia and Elizabeth, Adam's daughters from his first marriage to Sophia Jones, and his new wife Ann Crow.

1830 U.S. Census:1485 Rebecca enumerated in the household of her father Adam Patterson in Burlingtown Township, Licking County, Ohio as a female age 10 to 15; Rebecca was about age 13. Others residing in the household included sister Hannah, step-mother Ann Crow, and several half-siblings. It is possible that William P. Morey was the one male aged 15 to 20 enumerated, perhaps working as a farmhand.

1835 Marriage:2444, inside front cover. Marriage year of 1835 estimated based on birth of son Andrew Jackson Morey early in 1837. "Between 1829-1839 there was a period of time where no marriage records were available, possibly lost completely in the fire."

1840 U.S. Census:1489 Rebecca enumerated in the household of her husband W. P. Morey in Burlington Township, Licking County, Ohio as the one female age 20 to 30; Rebecca was about age 23. Sons Andrew Jackson and Wilson also resided in the household.

1850 U.S. Census:1636 Rebecca enumerated in the household of her husband William Morey in Moulton Township, Auglaize County, Ohio as a female, age 34, born in Ohio. Seven children also resided in the household (Andrew Jackson, Wilson, Clarinda, Martin, Stillman, Ephraim, and Matilda).

1884 News Item:714 Our fire department turned out twice yesterday afternoon in quick response to false alarms, both in the third ward. The first alarm was given in the belief that the residence of Mrs. Rebecca Morey, on the corner of Court and Benton streets was on fire, from the fact that the attic was full of smoke, caused, as it was afterwards learned, by smoke blown from the chimney. The second alarm was by the burning of a chimney, the dwelling belonging to the Shawber heirs’ west of the Union School building, now occupied by J. C. Hassenier and family. Should a fire have broken out yesterday, it would have been difficult to extinguish it in consequence of the high wind prevailing.
