Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 7th Great Grand father, assuming certain weak links prove to be correct.;


!NOTES:There are several Matthew Pattersons in old Pennsylvania Records (Lancaster County for example) and in Augusta Co., VA records. One of them may be this same man. Most that I've looked at have been "claimed" as other men, but i don't know that those conclusions are correct. Much research is needed.


!NOTES:B/D unknown, nor have any records been found to help narrow it down. Old enough to receive a Grant in 1762, so 21 or older then (born c 1741 or before). Probably born in 1720's at least, if he is the father of Matthew (Jr) born ca 1749 or earlier;


!NOTES:There was a Mathias Peterson in Tryon (now Lincoln) Co., NC while Matthew Patterson was there. There has been some confusion among their records I've included both, but with notes as to who is who;


!NOTES:Many years ago, Valeska Vicars shared a note about a 1762 land grant for Matthew Patterson in Craven Co., NC. I realized recently that it had to be Craven Co., *SC* instead, which once covered a huge portion of that state. I found records online at the SC Archives related to that land grant. Matthew Patterson had 150 acres in the High Hills between Wataree and Black Rivers as far back as 1758. This is modern Sumter Co., SC, which is a goodly distance from where he later lived in NC. Of course it could be the same Matthew Patterson, but at present, I have no way of knowing if it is the same man. Those records are transcribed below.
