Introducing Mary Jane Hawkins of Sharpsburg, Allegheny Co, PA________________________

Biographical Sketches of Leading Citizens Lawrence County Pennsylvania 1897 WILLIAM S. PATTISON [p. 318] one of the leading and most progressive citizens of Union township, and a carpenter who is much in demand throughout the surrounding country, was born in a house which was situated within a few rods of his present elegant residence, Dec. 10, 1834. He is a son of David and Jane (Stewart) Pattison. His first wife, who was a Miss Margaret Stevens, died in 1892, aged fifty-eight years, leaving two children—David Clarkson, a carpenter of New Castle, who married Maggie Winters; and James R. A., a conductor on the street railway. He was a second time joined in the bonds of matrimony to Mary Hawkins, daughter of Martin L. Hawkins, and this union resulted in the birth of twin boys: Ralph A. Stewart, and Russell J. Hancock, both of whom are exactly like in features and in build. Mr. Pattison is a Republican in politics, the principles of which party he earnestly advocates and supports. He is a member of the Presbyterian Church, and active and liberal in its support. He is a member of the G. A. R.
