!NOTES:B/D per D/C, T/S, SS application and as told to me by him.;


!NOTES:B/P Grassy Branch area (Judson) of Swain Co., NC. Now under waters of Fontana Lake.;


!NOTES:Marvin was born out of wedlock to Hattie T. Grant (1878-1953) and "Lonso Patterson" who were not married to one another. Therefore he took his mother's name as was the law at the time. Lonso (aka Lon) is Carroll Alonso Patterson (1880-1922) who was a neighbor of the Grants at Grassy Branch. No documentary evidence has been found proving he is Marvin's father. We only had Marvin's word (and his mother's, who told him). However, DNA testing proves we are very closely related to this set of Pattersons, so it more or less confirms that Lon is Marvin's father.;


!NOTES:Marvin was mostly raised by his grandparents John Patton Grant and Darthula Evans Grant. His mother later married and had several children who were Marvin's half-siblings. His father also later married and had a daughter (Willa Bell) who was Marvin's half-sister. It is doubtful he and she ever met.;
