152 "In the summer of 1861, they made preparations and started to build a new brick home. The bricks were formed and burned near the house, and the stones for the foundation were taken from the bank of the creek which flowed through their farm." BALMER, Peter (I10142)

155 "Jacob, or Jakob as the Swiss record spells it, was born March 29, 1814. Jacob married Anna Stettler on March 17, 1842, the marriage record in Volume A, page 47, of Putnam County [Ohio] Marriage Records, says Feb. 17, 1842, although Walter Hochstettler gave us the date of March.

Anna was born Jan. 11, 1816, in Groz-Hoch-Statten, Canton Bern, Switzerland. She came to America with her father, and her brother, Christian, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Marianna, in 1833. They landed in New York and made their journey by water and foot, heading for Richland County, Ohio. They lived in Richland County until 1841 when they moved to Allen County, settling in Richland Township.

It is presumed that their mother died in Switzerland and that their father died in Richland County or maybe around Mt. Eaton in Wayne County. This information came from Walter Hochstettler, and he had been unable to verify it. He did say that Anna and her sisters were confirmed members of the Reformed Church in their village of Groz-Hoch-Statten in the Canton of Bern, before coming to America. If so, the records might be there and available to any family member who cared to write for them, since Swiss records are kept on a family basis for that time period.

169 "Jane, widow of John, granted a certificate to Rich Square MM, N.C. "where she now lives"; the certificate was placed in the hands of James Watkins to forward."

This suggests some relationship between Jane and James. Some suggest that Jane was his mother, but as she married John Watkins in 1754, she could not have been James' mother, unless my guess that he was born in 1744 is incorrect. Possibly John Watkins was an older brother of James.
WATKINS, James Sr. (I118)
170 "Jane, widow of John, Granted Certificate to Transfer to Rich Square, N.C. Monthly Meeting "where she now lives" [from Black Water, VA Monthly Meeting]; certificate place in the hands of James Watkins to forward."

Might this suggest that Jane was James' his sister-in-law?

172 "Jermia [sic] Kelly Son to Peter Kelly and Mary his wife was Born at Spring hill [sic] in the County of August [sic] on the 3d of April 1799."

I have set this to 1792 only because he could not have been born only a few months after his brother, Peter, and his death record says he was in the 4th year of his life when he died in 1795 (which means he was three going on four).

179 "John K. Patterson. Occasionally we find one of the old school railroaders who has pulled coupling-pins, twisted brakes and punched tickets for over a third of a century and escaped with his life, but such men are scarce. He, of whom we are writing is such a man, who began in 1856 and relinquished his punch on the first of the present year [1909].

John K. Patterson is a son of David and Eva (Kern) Patterson, and was born in Sheridan [New York], this country, December 2, 1836."

John K. Patterson was reared in the town of Sheridan on a farm, and received his education in the Westfield and Fredonia academies, and after leaving school he taught the winter term of 1855-56, in the spring of the latter year going to Davenport, Iowa, which at that time was in the far west. Soon after his arrival there he secured work on what is known as the Great Rock Island route, his division being between Davenport and Iowa City. He remained there two years, and in 1858 returned home, living on the farm until 1863, when he went to Bradford and took charge of the construction train on the Bradford branch of the Erie R.R., where he remained until August, 1864. The fall of 1864 found him in Marietta, Georgia, employed in business until March, 1866, when the soldiers having withdrawn, he came away. His business was providing suppliers along the line. Upon his arrival in Dunkirk he hired a vessel and engaged in trade between the latter city and Canada, and the next year, forming a partnership with O. R. Oakley, he began the dry good business, the firm being Oakley & Patterson, and was continued until the fall of 1868, when President Andrew Johnson appointed him postmaster, his being the last appointment confirmed by the Senate, then in session. Upon assuming his duties, he disposed of the dry goods business, and devoted his whole time to the execution of the duties of his office, which he held until 1871.

In October, 1871, he took a passenger train on the D.A. V. & P. R. R., and ran as conductor until January 1, 1891, when he was appointed a special agent to collect statistics for the United States Government, Department of the Interior.

Mr. Patterson is an active republican and a member of the Baptist church, of which he has been treasurer for many years. He belongs to Irondequoit Lodge, No. 102, Free and Accepted Masons, of Dunkirk, has attained the rank of Sir Knight, and is a member of the Conductors' Insurance association.

John K. Patterson was twice married, first to Mary Seamans, of Poughkeepsie, New York, whom he married February 15, 1864. She came from a Quaker family, the daughter of Nelson Seamans. She died April 10, 1885, leaving four children: John K., Jr., Mary H., Maud J. and Jennie F. On December 15, 1886, he married Lida Cronkrite, of Pleasant Valley, Dutchess county,k this State, and they have one child, Mildred K.

Mr. Patterson has a beautiful home on Central Avenue, Dunkirk, and is a pleasant, fine-looking gentleman, whose friendship is esteemed by a wide circle of acquaintances."

185 "John was the third of eleven children... The oldest son had already died the spring before John was born. John was born in the Shifferly home, which was a short distance northeast of Beaverdam, Ohio. It is very probable that John was born in the log house that his father first erected for his family. In later years, it was replaced by a sturdy brick building, built in the Swiss tradition of things that are built to last for centuries."
