Biographical Sketches of Leading Citizens Lawrence County Pennsylvania 1897, p485 (partial sketch - see Robert D. Pattison page for full biography)
ROBERT D. PATTISON. [p. 485] This solid and substantial citizen and farmer of Union township was born on the farm that is now the scene of his agricultural operations July 29, 1841, and is a son of David and Jane (Stewart) Pattison. David Pattison was born in Glasgow, Scotland, where he worked at his trade of cotton-spinner before he came to America when a young man. He came to Western Pennsylvania, and found employment in quarry work, building the old canal. His wife, who was born in Paisley, Scotland, passed to the better land beyond the river of death at the age of eighty-six. Their children were: David C.; Mary; William S.; Jeanette; Robert D.; Alexander S.; and two that died in infancy.
Mr. Pattison married Miss Maggie E. McCreary, daughter of Thomas McCreary, who resides with Mr. Pattison, and this union has been fruitful of five children: Thomas M., a machinist of New Castle, who married Lillian E. Daggart, and has one son, Paul; Adella J., who married David Wilson, and has one child, Cleda; John D.; Nanny P.; and Robert H. The three younger children live at home. Mr. Pattison affiliates with the Republican party; he is decided in his opinions, brave and courageous in the expression of them, and conscientious in the endorsement of everything he believes to be just and right. It is hardly necessary to add that he is one of the most valued citizens of Union township, whose growth and development he has been at pains to foster. Mr. and Mrs. Pattison are members of the old Covenanter's Church; they are highly esteemed in their community, and are admirably filling their position as useful members of society, being the promoters of intelligence, education, and the highest of moral principles.
