Notes for Mary PATTERSON

Note: Research in Progress; Use with Caution

Evidence of Parental Relationship: The will of James Patterson in Chester County, Pennsylvania names his wife Ann, and children Margaret, Mary, Ann, Samuel, Rebecca, and James. This establishes the children of James Patterson at the time of his death shortly after 1740. (Source: Chester County, Pennsylvania)

Evidence of Parental Relationship: A deposition by John Magill, Senior, given on 11 October 1805 at the home of Hugh Magill in Lincoln County, Kentucky, identifies Samuel and James Patterson as sons of James Patterson, deceased. He further states the elder Patterson bought land in Augusta about 1740 and returned to his home in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where he died a short time later. His widow Anne Patterson moved the family to Augusta and she soon married Andrew Erwine. This establishes that the elder James Patterson's family moved to Augusta after his death and that the Patterson children became the step-children of Andrew Erwine. (Source: Augusta County, Virginia, Jacob Clements Erwin and Andrew Erwin, plaintiffs vs. William, James, and Samuel Patterson, defendants).

Evidence of Sibling Relationship: A deposition by Edward Erwin Sr., age 65, given on 16 September 1805 at the home of William Curry in Augusta County, Virginia, identifies Rebecca Stephenson and Samuel Patterson as siblings of Mary Magill. This establishes that Rebecca Stephenson, Samuel Patterson, and Mary Magill were siblings and that Mary was married to a Magill. (Source: Augusta County, Virginia, Jacob Clements Erwin and Andrew Erwin, plaintiffs vs. William, James, and Samuel Patterson, defendants).

Evidence of Social Relationship: Andrew Erwin served a witness and testator for the will of William Magill, proved 29 November 1749 in Augusta County, in which William bequeaths livestock and personal items to his son John. This establishes there was a close relationship between the Magill and Erwin families, which included the Patterson step-children. (Source: Chalkley's Scots-Irish in Virginia, v. 3, p. 15 (Augusta County Court, Will Book 1, p. 202))

1749 Marriage:1061, p. 2.,559, v. 2, p. 275 (Augusta County Marriage Licenses) "John Magill, Sr., secured a marriage license in Augusta County, Virginia. The name of the wife, who ten years later was to become the mother of John Magill, the Kentucky author and historian, is not recorded."

1761 Land Sale:559, v. 3, p. 373 (Augusta County Deed Book 9, p. 431) John and Mary Magill sell 120 acres of land for £24, part of 300 acres patented to John on 12 May 1759 on North River of Sanandoe. John McClure’s land is opposite James Magill’s land. This establishes that John Magill's wife was named Mary.

Death Prior to 1813:
1021 John Magill's will written 22 May 1813 in Lincoln County, Kentucky makes no mention of his wife Mary. In his will written 22 May 1813, John Magill mentions his "beloved sons William, James, John, and David, and to my daughters Elizabeth Frame and Anne Daugherty to each one dollar, also to the widow and heirs of my son Hugh Magill, deceased, for the support and education of said heirs I give and bequeath the use of the land on which I now live with all the appurtenances thereunto belonging . . . I likewise constitute and appoint John Magill, son to William Magill, and John Walkup sole Executors . . . "
