Am I Kin To Crockett and General Patton?

I and my grandson, Tyler Hunt, may be kin to two of the greatest heroes in American history, General George Patton, and Davy Crockett. I think that just about covers it.

It seems certain that the various Pattons settling in Augusta County, Virginia, in the early part of the eighteenth century, were of the same origin, the father of whom was John Patton, brother of Colonel James Patton and Elizabeth Patton Preston.

Colonel James had come from Ireland in 1730. Probably one of the compelling reasons for the mass migration at this time was the forced exile of John lewis in 1729. He was a brother-in-law of Henry Patton, having married Margaret Lynn, sister of Henry’s wife, Sarah Lynn. They were daughters of the Laird of Loch Lynn (Linnhe). John Lewis first took up his residence in Philadelphia but he soon went into Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, purchasing severla tracts of land in that county but later moving on to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

The Pattons were originally landed gentry seated at Ferrochie, Fifeshire, Scotland. The progenitor of the Irish branch of the family, William Patton, M.A., was born in Scotland; had immigrated to Northem Ireland during the King James Plantation. He was in County Donegal by 1626 as Rector of the parishes of Ramojgh and Clonmary, Barony of Raphoe and later at Aughnish, Barony of Kilmacrenan. Reverend William Patton and his wife, Margaret, made their home at an estate called ‘Groghan’, and reared two sons, Henry and John. Henry’s son, also named Henry, married Sarah Lynn, daughter of David Lynn of Kilmacrenan and a descendant of the Lynns of Loch Lynn, in Scotland Henry and Sarah lived in the Manor of Springfield, Parish of Clondevaddock, Barony of Kilmacrenan, County Donegal.

Ann, his daughters, at his own charge, “in order to partake of his majesty’s bounty for taking up land.”
John Preston came to America with his brother-in-law, James Patton, a brother of Mrs. Preston. It is believed that he lived on the farm a mile N. E. of Staunton, recently known as the Mosby-Taylor farm, and now, (1892), owned by M. E. Miller.
Mrs. Lotitia Floyd, daughter of Col. William Preston, granddaughter of John Preston, and wife of the first Governor Floyd, in 1843 wrote an account of the Preston family, from which we take most of the following statements:
Colonel James Patton had four sisters, two of whom married “men of quality” in the old country. The youngest sister, Elizabeth, while crossing the river Shannon in a boat, had as a fellow-passenger a young man of striking appearance, who proved to be a ship carpenter named John Preston. This casual interview led to acquaintance and a runaway marriage. The young lady thus placed herself “out of the pale of her family.” Her brother, James Patton, having afterwards retired from the sea and settled in America, induced Mr. and Mrs. Preston to emigrate also. Mrs. Floyd puts the date of their arrival in the Valley at 1735, and says John Preston died seven years afterwards at “Gibson’s old place, eight miles below Staunton.” But it appears from the records of Augusta County Court that his death occurred in 1747, and if he lived only seven years after coming, he must have arrived in 1740 with Alexander Breckinridge and many others, as is generally supposed to have been the fact. While living in Augusta, remote from the seaboard, John Preston employed himself as a cabinet-maker, constructing household furniture for himself and neighbors.
William, only son of John Preston, was born in the town of Newton, Ireland, November 25, 1729. He received most of his education in America, from the Rev. John Craig. Mrs. Patton was a haughty woman, says Mrs. Floyd, and kept aloof from the Prestons. A silly prediction of an Irish woman that William Preston would get his uncle’s fortune, so impressed her with dread of a marriage between the nephew and one of her daughters, that she allowed no intercourse between the young people. She died soon after the marriage of her daughters,—one to a kinsman of hers named Thompson, and the other to John Buchanan. Colonel Patton then induced his widowed sister to remove to Spring Farm, in the vicinity of Staunton, and went to live with her.
John Preston and other Presbyterian people of Staunton and vicinity of his day, worshiped at Tinkling Spring, and his body was interred at that place. His eldest daughter married Robert Breckinridge,

George Smith Patton Jr. was born in San Gabriel Township, California in 1885 (in what is now the city of San Marino), to George Smith Patton Sr. (1856–1927) and his wife Ruth Wilson (1861–1928). Although he was actually the third George Smith Patton, he was called Junior. The Pattons were an affluent family of Scots-Irish descent.
As a boy, Patton read widely in the classics and military history. His father was a friend of John Singleton Mosby, the noted cavalry leader of the Confederate Army in the American Civil War who served first under J.E.B. Stuart and then as a guerrilla fighter. Patton grew up hearing Mosby’s stories of his adventures, and longed to become a general himself.
Patton came from a military family, his ancestors including General Hugh Mercer of the American Revolution.[4] His great uncle, Waller T. Patton, died of wounds received in Pickett’s Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg. John M. Patton and Isaac Patton, also his great uncles, were colonels in the Confederate States Army. His great uncle William T. Glassell was a Confederate States Navy officer. Hugh Weedon Mercer, a Confederate general, was his close relative. John M. Patton, a great-grandfather, was a lawyer and politician who had served as acting governor of Virginia.
Patton’s paternal grandparents were Colonel George Smith Patton and Susan Thornton Glassell. His grandfather, born in Fredericksburg, Virginia, graduated from Virginia Military Institute (VMI), Class of 1852, second in a class of 24. After graduation, George Smith Patton studied law and practiced in Charleston, Virginia (now West Virginia). When the American Civil War broke out, he served in the 22nd Virginia Infantry of the Confederate States of America. Colonel George S. Patton, his grandfather, was killed during the Battle of Opequon. The Confederate Congress had promoted Colonel Patton to brigadier general; however, at the time, he had already died of battle wounds, so that promotion was never official.

A younger Benjamin Davis Wilson ca. 1850
Patton’s grandfather left behind a namesake son, born in Charleston, Virginia (now West Virginia). The second George Smith Patton (born George William Patton in 1856, changing his name to honor his late father in 1868) was one of four children. Graduating from the Virginia Military Institute in 1877, Patton’s father served as Los Angeles County, California, District Attorney and the first City Attorney for the city of Pasadena, California and the first mayor of San Marino, California. He was a Wilsonian Democrat.
His maternal grandparents were Benjamin Davis Wilson (December 1, 1811 to March 11, 1878), mayor of Los Angeles in 1851–1852 and the namesake of Southern California’s Mount Wilson, and his second wife, Margaret Hereford. Wilson was a self-made man who was orphaned in Nashville, Tennessee, came to Alta California as a fur trapper and adventurer during the American Indian Wars before marrying Ramona Yorba, the daughter of a California land baron, Bernardo Yorba, and made his fortune through the wedding dowry, receiving Rancho Jurupa, settling what would become California’s San Gabriel Valley, after the Mexican American War. Benjamin Wilson was also a well known Indian fighter who served as justice of the peace for the Mexican authorities and it was while hunting down renegade Indians that he discovered what is present day Big Bear, California which received that name because Wilson and his posse lassoed and killed over thirty grizzly bears while passing through.[5]
Patton married Beatrice Banning Ayer (January 12, 1886 – September 30, 1953), the daughter of wealthy textile baron Frederick Ayer, on May 26, 1910. They had three children, Beatrice Smith (March 19, 1911 – October 24, 1952), Ruth Ellen Patton Totten (February 28, 1915 – November 25, 1993), who wrote The Button Box: A Loving Daughter’s Memoir of Mrs. George S. Patton, and George Patton III (December 24, 1923 – June 27, 2004), who followed in his father’s footsteps, attending West Point and eventually rising to the rank of Major General as an armor officer in the United States Army.

The progenitor of the Irish branch of the family, William Patton, M.A. was born in Scotland; had immigrated to Northern Ireland during the King James Plantation. He was in County Donegal by 1626 as Rector of the parishes of Ramoigh and Clonmary, Barony of Raphoe and later at Aughnish, Barony of Kilmacrenan. Rev. William Patton and his wife, Margaret, made their home at an estate called “Groghan” and reared to sons, Henry (Sr.) and John.

From “Chronicles of American Lineage”: The Pattons (Paten or Patis) are supposed to have reached England from Normandy, then to Scotland and later, with many other families, induced to leave Northern Scotland to colonize Northern Ireland with Scotch Presbyterians for political reasons by James 1st.

William was Rector of the parishes of Ramoigh, Aughanish and Clonmany, Diocese of Raphal County, in County Donegal, Ireland. The homeplace in Ireland was the Manor of Springfield, Barony of Kilmacrenan, County of Donegal, Province of Ulster.

From ” Coming to America; A Chronicle of the American Lineage of the Pattons” by C. L. Patton,Springfield, Illinois, 1954:

The earliest known progenitors of the Patton Pioneers in America were of scotch origin, living in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, in the vicinity of Loch Linnhe. They were ardent Presbyterians and took their religion seriously. For many years they had opposed the tyranny of the English monarchs, who had denied them the right of freedom of worship or participation in civic affairs.

For centuries, the Irish, who were Roman Catholics, independent and aggressive in Character, had been a source of great concern to England. In the latter part of the sixteenth century, Queen Elizabeth conceived the plan of planting colonies of Protestants in Ireland, to promote loyalty in that rebellious country. Six counties comprising a half-million acres were set aside to form the Ulster Plantation. The settlement of this area was at first indifferent and inconsequential but after the advent of James the Sixth of Scotland, who became James the First of England, at the beginning of the seventeenth century, colonization became more active. The great majority of the colonists sent to Northern Ireland by James, were Scotch Lowlanders and English from the northern counties of England. These people, through intermarriage with the Irish, inaugurated the “Ulster Scots” or “Scotch-Irish.”

The reign of Charles the First (1625-1649) brought the Ulstermen, as well as the Presbyterians of the Lowlands of Scotland a period of vicious persecution, practically suppressing the Presbyterian religion in Ireland and demanding subservience to the Church of England, which bore heavily upon these staunch Protestants. This persecution continued throughout the reign of Charles the Second (1660-1685) and the passage of the Corporation acts and the Test Acts demanded conformity with the practices of the Church of England. Little relief was experienced by these unhappy people during the Cromwell Protectorate (1635-1658) which preceded the reign of Charles and despite the fact tha tall of this period was under Protestant domination, the Presbyterians and Nonconformists suffered quite as badly as they did under the persecutions of Catholic James, who ascended the throne in 1685.

It was during the reign of James the Second that the discontented and oppressed English invited William of Orange to accept the throne; jointly with his cousin Mary, daughter of James the Second. This precipitated war and induced many of the Scotch Lowlanders to join the army of William and proceed to Ulster to oppose the army of James. A successful resistance to the Siege of Londonderry in 1689 and a victory over the forces of James at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 terminated hostilities and established William and Mary upon the throne of England.

Despite these victories, life became almost unbeaable in Ulster because of the many years of guerilola warfare with the Irish Celts. This, together withthe desire for more religious freedom and political independence and because of the glowing accounts of life in the New World, ws a detemining factor in causing the Ulsterites to seek their fortune in America. It is estimated that twenty thousand of the Scotch-Irish left Ireland in the first three decades of the eighteenth century. More than six thousand entered the Port of Philadelphia in the year 1729. These adventurers, however, did not tarry long in “The City of Brotherly Love” but moved into adjoining counties in the Province of Pennsylvania and acquired parcels of land, particularly in the County of Lancaster.

After a comparatively short residence in the Pennsylvania country, these hardy Scotch-Irish pioneers developed an urge for further exploration. Large numbers of them proceeded up the valley of the Shenandoah to the mountains and fertile valleys of Virginia. Coincident with this immigration was the movement of the Germans into the valley. They, for the most part, settled in the lower part of the valley in the region of the present town of Winchester, while the Scotch-Irish continued their trek up the valley into the county of Augusta and across the Blue Ridge into the present county of Pendleton, West Virginia. Their first settlement was near the present town of Staunton, which had been founded by John Lewis in 1732. From thence they spread to other parts of the Virginia Frontier, into North and South Carolina and Tennessee. By mid-century they were exploring the Ohio and Kentucky country and had established themselves on the headwaters of the James River and the region of the Cumberland. In all of these adventures the Pattons took an active part and left ehri imipress upon the communities in which they lived.

It seems certain that the various Pattons settling in Augusta County, Virginia, in the early part of the eighteenth century, were of the same origin, the father of whom was John Patton, brother of Colonel James Patton and Elizabeth Patton Preston. Colonel James had come from Ireland in 1730. Probably one of the compelling reasons for the mass migration at this time was the forced exile of John lewis in 1729. He was a brother-in-law of Henry Patton, having married Margaret Lynn, sister of Henry’s wife, Sarah Lynn. They were daughters of the Laird of Loch Lynn (Linnhe). John Lewis first took up his residence in Philadelphia but he soon went into Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, purchasing severla tracts of land in that county but later moving on to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

The early attempts at colonization in America by the English were made at the incidence of the Crown and were not particlarly successful. At a later period independent immigration took place but was sporadic and disorganized. It was not long however before certain small groups found their way to the New World seeking a greater religious and political freedom than they had experienced in the mother country. Later, independent ship-owners brought increasing numbers of colonists to the small communities established by the ealier pioneers, hoping to find a haven where they might better their fortunes and social standing. Companies were organized and controlled by groups of men in England, under the protection of the King, for the purpose of increasing immigration and developing the resources of the colonies.

The immigrants were largely of the “middle class” of society and were composed of farmers, tradesmen, artisans, laborers and apprentices. The limited number of the “nobility” to venture to this new land were, as a rule, reprsentaives of the Crown and therefore not permanent residents. At a later time, considerable numbers of “redemptioners” and “political offenders” were transported to the colonies. There were two main sources of ingress in the early 1700’s; one being direct to Virginia and Massachusetts and the other up the Delaware to the Port of Philadelphia. A small number of the Scotch-Irish landed in Charleston, South Carolina, but by far the greater number came direct to Philadelphia because of the liberality of the Pennsylvania government, but the inhabitants of this part of the colony preferred to see the newcomers pass on, so they moved inland in search of unoccupied land.

The Scotch-Irish being on the whole the more venturesome, went further and penetrated the mountain valleys and spread northward and southward and thus formed a solid rim of settlement all along the Virginia frontier. Their first abode was in that part of Augusta County that later became Pendleton County, West Virginia. From this stopping point they soon advanced up the valley to southwestern Virginia, North Caolina and Tennessee and on to Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri.

When the Scotch-Irish began to arrive in Philadelphia, the Secretary of the Province of Pennsylvania wrote, “It looks to me as if all of Ireland is to send its inhabitants hither, for last week not less than six ships arrived. It is strange that they thus crowd in where they are not wanted.” The Scotch-Irish were accustomed to not being wanted. This did not deter them from a continued and steady advance into more remote parts of the country. By 1738 when the first valley counties were established, they were in such numbers that a petition was sent by them to the Governor of Virginia, asking “that we might be allowed the liberty of our consciences in worshipping God in a way agreeable to the principles of our education.” The Governor graciously replied that “they would not be interfered with so long as they behaved peaceably, registered their meeting places, abjured the Stuart Pretender, the doctrine of transubstantiation and the Pope at Rome.” Nothing in this request disturbed a Presbyterian conscience so they, in turn, agreed to pay their tithes to the Established Church so long as they did not have to attend its services. His Honor welcomed an increase in quitrents and the Governor took pleasure in establishing a group of hardy people between the rich plantation owners and the inhabitants of the frontier. Thee was no one to object to the Scotch-Irignh in the Valley and this time they found rest and peace and thse descendants of the “persecuted” found contentment and dwelt amicably, one with another.

There, early settlers in Western Virginia were descended from nonconformist Presbyterians and the Covenanters. It has been said “They had such a fear of God that it left no room in their hearts for any fear of Man.” Certainly man they did not fear and persecution had taught them only to adhere more firmly to their principles, their customs and their faith.

The Pattons, on the whole, were a God-fearing, earnest and industrious lot and, despite trials and tribulations, became influential and aggressive members of their communities. They occupied positions of trust in both military and civic affairs and in general were successful in the pursuit of fortune.

Descendants of the early settlers, either from the Pilgrim fathers or from the colonists of Virginia, should take a justifiable pride in their early American ancestry. This feeling of pride, however, should rise from the sturdy character of the pioneers and from the things they accomplished and not from any false idea of an aristocratic heredity imported from the Mother Country. Those individuals who became prominent and influential in the development of the colonies did so through their own initiative, energy and ability and not through the influence and favor of the “Hierarchy.”

From a book entitled “JAMES PATTON AND THE APPALACHIAN COLONISTS” is the following information as recorded by Anne Rhea Bruce.
 
The Pattons were originally landed gentry seated at Ferrochie, Fifeshire, Scotland. The progenitor of the Irish branch of the family, William Patton, M.A., was born in Scotland; had immigrated to Northem Ireland during the King James Plantation. He was in County Donegal by 1626 as Rector of the parishes of Ramojgh and Clonmary, Barony of Raphoe and later at Aughnish, Barony of Kilmacrenan. Reverend William Patton and his wife, Margaret, made their home at an estate called ‘Groghan’, and reared two sons, Henry and John. Henry’s son, also named Henry, married Sarah Lynn, daughter of David Lynn of Kilmacrenan and a descendant of the Lynns of Loch Lynn, in Scotland Henry and Sarah lived in the Manor of Springfield, Parish of Clondevaddock, Barony of Kilmacrenan, County Donegal. They became the parents of James, Elizabeth, Andrew, Richard and possibly Samuel Patton. James was a younger son, born in 1692 in Newton, Limavaddy, not slated to inherit any of the Patton estates, so he went to sea when very young. The book goes on to say, “A very impressive ship’s master he must have been, as he was a ‘man of gigantic statue, handsome and dignified and of remarkably commanding powers’. He was dark-haired and brown-eyed and over six feet two inches tall.” It is said that James took part in the War with France called “Queen Anne’s War” which terminated in 1713.
 
In the James Patton’ book, p21 is a mention of Samuel Patton, as follows:
 
“The suggestion has been made that James Patton was responsible for the importation of the first Arabian horse into the English colonies in North America. An Arabian stallion named Bulle Rocke was imported into Virginia about 1730. One Samuel Patton had the first certificate for Bulle Rocke. It is thought that Samuel was a brother of James Patton already established in Virginia and Captain Patton, the ship’s master, brought him Bulle Roche on one of his Trans-Atlantic voyages. .
 
Sarah Lynn had a brother William Lynn who married Margaret Patton, daughter of John Patton, granddaughter of William Patton. William Lynn and Margaret Patton had two children, Margaret Lynn who married John Lewis, and Dr. William Lynn who founded Fredericksburg, Va in 1727.
 
John Lewis lived in Northern Ireland on the estate of an old Catholic, Sir Mingho Campbell. When Sir Mingho Campbell died, his son insisted that John Lewis and his family vacate the premises. He came with a posse to drive them out. John Lewis’s brother, Charles, was killed and Margaret was wounded. John Lewis then killed the Irish laird, killing him with his shillelagh. Lewis had to flee and hid until a ship could bring him to America. It is said in the book that perhaps Patton’s ship picked up Lewis and took him to America. Margaret and their children followed 3 years or so later, to Lancaster County, Pa, then to Williamsburg, Va. to see if they could get land. “Engraved on John Lewis’s tombstone at Bellefonte, Staunton, Virginia, is the inscription, ‘Here lies J OM Lewis who slew the Irish Lord’ “. This is the family of Thomas Lewis, Andrew Lewis, Charles Lewis and John Lewis, famous in the annals of frontier Virginia.
 
The following is from “The Family Tree” by Mary Preston Gray.
 
Henry Patton was a ship builder and ship owner, operating merchant ships. His son James was in the royal navy and held in high esteem by the King. Sometime after leaving the navy, James married Mary Borden (some accounts say Mary Osborne and others Burden) and had two daughters, Mary Patton b.1728 and Margaret Patton. James was Captain of a ship called the “Walpole”, one of Henry Patton’s ships. Not sure if it was a merchant ship or passenger but I would guess a merchant ship. It is said that James made as many as 20 or 25 passages from Northern Ireland to America, specifically, Hobbe’s Hole, Virginia on the Rappahannack River. He carried Ulster immigrants to Virginia and returned with peltries and tobacco. In about 1738,James Patton received a grant of 120,000 acres of land in America. The King’s only stipulation was that the land should be west of the ‘Blue Mountains’, and that settlements should be established for worthy and dependable British subjects. James Patton made one last voyage along with Alexander Breckinridge and his wife Jane, sister of John Preston, there were McCues, McClungs, McPheeters and many other Scottish names. Counties Donegal, Derry and Antrim had given refuge to the Protestant Scots who fled from Roman Catholic persecution and these descendents of those Presbyterian Scotchmen were ready to brave the dangers of the new world to found for themselves a home of religious freedom. James Patton brought his wife and two daughters, John Preston and his wife Elizabeth Patton Preston, their three daughters, Letitia, Margaret, and Mary and their one son, William Preston (founder of the Smithfield Prestons). Johns fourth daughter, Ann or Elizabeth Ann Preston was apparently born in this country in 1739. Others were John Buchanan and his two sisters Margaret and Martha, John Preston’s sister, Mary Preston who later married Phillip Barger. The Walpole arrived in Belliaven, near Alexandria on the Potomac on August 26, 1738. There were supposedly 56 passengers aboard the Walpole on this trip and it is believed 30 of them were imported to settle a 30,000 acre tract,-1000 acres each. Patton, Lewis (a relative and land speculator) and William Beverley had entered a joint venture to obtain land from the Council of Virginia. The Pattons and Prestons settled adjacent to Tinkling Spring in the southern part of Beverley Manor (near what is now Staunton). See how the Beverley Manor was divided. They were among those who in the fall of the same year formed the Triple Forks of the Shenando Congregation, which later became the Tinkling Spring Meeting House congregation. These Presbyterians were considered “dissentors”, that is they dissented from the Anglican Church of England. (See also a page on James Patton which shows family connections better. John Preston is buried at Tinkling Spring Church near Staunton, VA. See pictures of the Church and its history.) Patton later built on the upper waters of the James River two villages and two forts. One was called Pattonsburg and the other, Buchanan. These two villages remain still, Pattonsburg is very small but Buchanan has grown into a thriving town.
 
He also took up large numbers of acres in Botetourt County, Va. His own home he named “Spring Fann”, which is now within the corporate limits of Staunton Va. The other place was called “Spring Hill” and was recently owned by a Mr. Leonard Hunter, near Waynesboro, Virginia. Young John Buchanan soon married Patton’s oldest daughter, Margaret, and they lived for years at Buchanan’s Fort. Martha Buchanan, John’s oldest sister, married a cousin newly arrived in the colony, another John Buchanan. John’s youngest sister, Margaret Buchanan married Major Charles Campbell They became parents of General William Campbell, the hero of the Battle of Kings Mountain. ‘
 
James Patton took up several thousand acres on the New River, in what is now Montgomery County, Virginia. Here, on the river, Phillip and Mary (Preston) Barger built a fort and began a settlement To this day it is known as the “Barger’s Fort, and across the 11dge Patton built a fort and began a settlement known as the  Barger’s Fort, and across the ridge Patton built a fort and began a settlement known as “Draper’s Meadows”. Here the Drapers, Ingles, McDonalds, Cloyds, etc. made their first home in the New World. Patton’s home was called “Solitude” and it was here. on July 8. 1753. Col James “Patton met a tragic death when much of the settlement was wiped out on a bright Sunday morning by the savage tomahawk  (Mary  Preston Gray’s “The Family Tree” shows this date as 1755 and July 8th is not a Sunday. “The Preston Family” by John Mason Brown. shows it as 1753 which is a Sunday.) It is said that Patton had sent his nephew William Preston on an errand to Sinking Spring (near present day Newport) William had left early that morning. Drapers Meadows is now known as Blacksburg, the home .
of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, currently the largest (and best) college in the state of Virginia. Four generations of Pattons lived here (at what is now known as Solitude”) as well as Governor John Floyd.
     William Preston’s home “Smithfield” is also located nearby. Mary Preston, granddaughter of John and Elizabeth Patton Preston was born here and married Capt. John Lewis of Sweet Springs. This John Lewis is descended from the Lewis family mentioned above.
 
This is only a part of Mary Preston Gray’s narrative and obviously only a small part of the book “James Patton and the Appalachian Colonists”. Some additional comments and details have been added from work compiled by G. Mallory Boush. (Will probably expand later.)
