Paton, Patton, Patoun Family Associated Families
Over the last few months I’ve identified that Russell Patton, son of Robert & Matilda Patton from Kirkwall, died at Bathurst River in The Gambia, Africa.
Robert Russell Patton’s wife Hannah, and son Ebenezer emigrated to Australia, starting in Tasmania and Ebenezer passing away in New South Wales.
Edward Patton, son of Robert & Matilda, died in San Francisco in what appears to be questionable circumstances.
We know that the grandchildren of John Dunn Patton, another son of Robert & Matilda, made their way to Australia. Charles Corsie, Lena & John Dunn III with their mother Isabella Corsie.
So with William, we have the descendants of three of Robert & Matilda sons, William & Annie’s grandsons in Australia.
We also have established links into the UK, suspect links into Canada and perhaps the United States. Robert Russell’s apparent “disappearance” from records is intriguing and I will be following up on that with some interest. The United States route for him will be my focus and perhaps his demise on the journey ….. stay tuned.
I’m posting all of the surnames that I have in my database up until the late 1900’s, early “naughties” in the event that we can establish family link contacts in either the U.S, Canada, U.K, Australia or other locations.
I’ve already identified a number of trees in the United States that trace back to our family but are obviously incorrect because the family members that they connected to were either deceased, remained single or emigrated to Australia.
Anyway, here’s the list. I hope it generates some interest. Feel free to share this post on Social Media.
I’ve also installed a Google Site Search engine on my website and it now has translation capabilities.
