This website has been created to celebrate those who have gone before us, to remember their legacy and to create a link between our past and our future.

Sometimes others choose not to be part of your life but that still doesn’t stop you from loving and passing history and stories on to those who may never know how much you love them.

This site is for you Caitlin Anne, Brylie Grace, Ava Louise & Eli Robert

LEST WE FORGET

“An Adult’s reality is but a Child’s fantasy …. and an Adult is really only a confused Child”

– Gary Patton 1971 (9 years of age)

The Patton Family Reunion on Saturday 27th January 2018 to mark the 172nd Anniversary of William Patton (1828-1909) arriving at Port Phillip on Tuesday 27 January 1846 was a great success. Family representatives from many branches of the "Tree" attended. A Family History Booklet has been printed and many took the opportunity to purchase a souvenir edition of the booklet. Further copies are available by registering your interest on my Facebook Page
