Overview

There is no evidence for the presence of Peter Patterson in the Augusta County records, as recorded in Chalkley's Chronicles. Evidence for his existence is found in Rockingham COunty records, as described by Wes Patterson, extracted June 1 2013. YDNA evidence indicates that descendants of Peter show a closely genetic similarity with descendants of Robert (51), and that Robert (51)'s will identifies a son Peter. That Peter (3) is Robert (51)'s son is highly likely, but its possible that there were two Peter Patterson's in this lineage. (Note that in the following discussion the "R" in Robert Patterson's name is not a middle initial, but Robert's mark, commonly inserted by him in his signed documents.):

Court records in Rockingham Co Va (Harrisonburg) have CONFIRMED that Robert "R" Patterson's 265 acre land patent that he received on the head waters of Linville Creek was sold AFTER he died, by his sons, Robert Patterson Jr. and Peter Patterson, the two executors of his will. Robert Jr. and Peter sold the land to John Ervin (Erwin) in April 1787, and it was entered into Deed Book 000, page 362 on June 25, 1787. The deed was proved by oaths of Hy. (Henry) Ervin and John Ervin Jr. Robert "R" Patterson's will was written and proved in 1775 in York Co SC where he had lived since the 1760's. For many, this is the final confirmation that the Robert Patterson of Linville Creek Va (originally Orange Co, then Augusta Co, and finally Rockingham Co) was the same Robert Patterson who lived on Clark's Fork of Bullocks Creek in modern York Co SC (originally Craven Co SC, then Anson Co NC, Mecklenburg Co NC, Tryon Co NC, and finally Craven/York Co SC). This also confirms that Robert's parents were William and Margaret Patterson.

To clear up the matter somewhat, Robert Patterson appears to have moved into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia during the early to mid 1740's, possibly even before 1740. We know for a fact that the Harrisons of modern day Rockingham Co Va left Sussex Co DE around 1737/38 and were in the Valley of Va by 1738. Their father Isaiah Harrison Sr. died en route to the valley. Many other families from Sussex Co DE migrated to the Linville Creek and surrounding areas of what is now Rockingham Co shortly thereafter, perhaps 1738 - 1748, depending on which family you're looking at.

Many of these families appear to have had short stops along the way in places such as Lancaster Co PA, or even parts of Maryland. Most of these families took up their tracks of land immediately, but waited many years before they applied for their land patent from the state of Virginia. "Widow Adams" aka "Mary Adams" was the same person as Margaret Addams who wrote her will in 1744, in Orange Co Va. In 1745, the area was finally organized officially as Augusta Co, and remained so until 1780, when it became Rockingham Co.

Margaret Adams appears to have already been widowed twice BEFORE she moved into the Linville Creek area, which was BEFORE 1744. She didn't receive her land patent for her 330 acres until 1759. Robert Patterson, her son, also appears to have already been there by 1744 as he (and his younger half-brother, Samuel Adams) were named as executors of her 1744 will. Robert didn't receive his Va land patent for his 265 acres until 1764.

When Robert wrote his will in SC in 1775, he left his "Virginia claims" to his sons Robert Jr. and Peter Patterson. No record of his sons selling the land was ever found in Augusta Co Va records. However, in 1780, just five years after Robert "R" died, the Linville Creek location fell under the newly formed Rockingham Co. Unfortunately, the court house in Harrisonburg (Rockingham) has burned twice since then, leaving us with hardly any original records remaining. On the other hand, many deed books were re-recorded from old court minute books, which is what happened with the 1787 Deed of Sale from Robert Jr and Peter Patterson to John Ervin. The original is lost, but we DO have this record, which is enough to confirm the relationship between the Robert Patterson of Linville Creek Va and the Robert Patterson of York Co SC.
