    • John Patterson appeared as head of household. There were three John Pattersons in Pendleton District in 1790, but this one best matches the makeup of John's family at the time; the others had far too many children, based on the known children of John's wife, Nancy Chapman.

      The household consisted of:
      Number of Free White Males Under 16: 1 [likely Joseph]
      Number of Free White Males 16 and Over: 1 [probably John]
      Number of Free White Females: 1 [likely Nancy (Chapman)]
      Number of Household Members: 3

      Free White Males 26 to 44: 1 [John Patterson]

      *bet 1807 and 1810: Nancy and John's last child was born in June 1808 and Nancy appears as head of household in 1810, meaning that John probably died sometime between late 1807 and early 1810. -> Marty Grant
