Pattersons of Rabun Co GA - Timeline of Records from that county

Most of the following records are from online newspaper records - all but one. Also, almost all of them are from Rabun Co, but a couple are from Franklin and/or Clarke Co., GA as some of my Pattersons were there briefly. 

Key names from my family in Rabun were John Patterson, Joseph Patterson, George Patterson, Amos Patterson and Elijah Chastain. These were sons of John Patterson and Margaret Black, and most moved into Union Co GA by the early 1830's. Elijah Chastain was the brother-in-law of George Patterson (my 3x-G-GF). 

The 1830 Rabun Census included Joseph, John, and George Patterson (brothers), plus Roley Patterson was there too, but no known connection to him exists. I am still developing all of this, but here are the pertinent details, many of which have gone under the radar for decades for some of us. Notice the "Source" links to the online newspaper sources. My personal notes are after the "WP:" tags.

One final note - brothers Joseph, George and Amos owned land in Union Co fairly early in the mid and late 1830's. Brothers John Jr and Robert did not however. John Jr did acquire land in Union, just later than the others, and further west in the county in an area that later became the border area between Union Co and newly formed Fannin Co. Brother Robert moved further south into GA (married Franklin Co in 1835, possibly in Clarke Co in 1830) and then AL, AR, and finally Rusk Co., TX. Later, Amos joined Robert in TX. Joseph, John Jr., and George remained in Union Co GA along with their parents, John and Margaret.

Timeline of Patterson Brothers in Rabun Co., GA prior to moving to Union Co GA:


1.      1828 Feb 22 – John Patterson, “NOTICE. GEORGIA, Rabun County, John Patterson of said county, and of Capt. Wood’s District, tolls before James Allen, Esq. Two mules, one a horse, a dark iron gray, supposed to be two years old last spring, branded on the front shoulder with the letter H 13 ½ hands high; the other a yellow bay mare, supposed to be two years old last spring, no brands perceivable, with a dark stripe across the shoulders, 13 hands high, appraised by Cleaveland Coffee and Hiram Gaines, the gray to sixty-five dollars, and the Bay to sixty. February 8. H. T. Mosely, Clerk.”
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Cleveland Coffee of Rabun Co., GA also a 4th-Great-Grandpa of Wes Patterson. In the 1830 census of Rabun Co., GA, George Patterson was enumerated on page 226 line 1, and John Patterson was on page 230. However, Elizabeth Gains and Henry S. Gains were next to George Patterson on lines 2 and 3. Furthermore, the above appraisers were on page 225 lines 22 and 27, respectively, with line 27 being the last line. Therefore, Hiram Gains was enumerated next to George Patterson. Also, Hannah Chasteen and Elijah Chasteen were on the two lines prior to Hiram Gains. Hannah was George Patterson’s mother-in-law, Elijah was George’s brother-in-law. Clearly, the appraisal took place nearer to where George Patterson lived in 1830 than where John was living in 1830. Perhaps in 1828, John was living closer to George.

2.      1830 May 9 – John Patterson, Deed Book A, p. 240 (transcribed to Book R, p. 181) Deed dated 9 May 1830, recorded 5 Apr. 1831, from Jeremiah York, to Jeffrey York, Rabun Co., GA conveyed South half of Lot 43, First District, for $150. Witnesses: Elijah Brady and John Patterson. Signed: Jeremiah York.
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Lot 43 in First District was naturally next to Lot 42, which was occupied by the Pattersons. In later newspaper notices, Lot 42 was identified as Joseph Patterson’s, and later as John Patterson’s. Perhaps they shared it, considering that the lot contained 490 acres. However, in the 1830 census, Joseph and John were not enumerated next to each other. On page 230 of the census, witness Elijah Brady was recorded on line 7. Jeffrey York was on line 9 same page. John Patterson, the other witness, was on line 21 of the same page. The grantor, Jeremiah York, was on line 22 of the same page, right next to John Patterson. This confirms to me that John Patterson was living on Lot 42 of First District in 1830. Joseph Patterson was enumerated on page 234 of the census, and line 17 (out of 27 lines each page).



3.      1830 July 13 – Joseph Patterson and Robert Patterson, “NOTICE: Four months after date application will be made to the Honorable the Inferior Court of Rabun county, when sitting for ordinary purposes, for leave to sell all the lands belonging to the estate of Robert Patterson, deceased, sold for the benefit of the heirs and creditors of said deceased. Joseph Patterson, Adm’r.”
WP: Joseph Black Patterson, b. 1789, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Robert Patterson, b. 1760’s, son of Thomas and Margaret Harrison Patterson, formerly of Buncombe Co., NC who lived at Big Ivy and Turkey Creek. Joseph was the nephew of Robert.

4.      1831 April 19 – Joseph Patterson, “ADMINISTRATOR’S SALE: Agreeably in an order of the honorable the Inferior Court of Rabun county, when sitting for ordinary purposes, will be sold on the first Tuesday in July next, Lot no. 7, in the 2d District of Rabun county, containing two hundred and fifty acres, more or less, it being part of the real estate of Robert Patterson, late of said county, deceased. Sold for the benefit of the heirs and creditors of said deceased. Terms made known on the day of sale. Joseph Patterson, Adm’r.”
WP: Joseph Black Patterson, b. 1789, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Robert Patterson, b. 1760’s, son of Thomas and Margaret Harrison Patterson, formerly of Buncombe Co., NC who lived at Big Ivy and Turkey Creek. Joseph was the nephew of Robert. The southern line of district 2 ran east and west around the town of Clayton, GA immediately to the south of the town. Lots 1 – 14 ran east to west along the southern part of district 2, with Lot 7 immediately to the east of the SE quadrant of Clayton, GA. This approximate location of Robert Patterson’s land was about 15 miles SE of Patterson Gap where John, Joseph and crowd lived in district 1.

5.      1831 Nov 15 – John Patterson, “(Copy of a Lost Deed.) – GEORGIA, RABUN COUNTY. … [James Smith sold to Elijah Chastain, both of Rabun Co., GA, the west part of Lot 17 in first District of Rabun on Persimmon Creek] … Signed, sealed, and delivered in the presence of John Patterson. – Jeremiah York, J. P.”
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Elijah Chastain later entered the record before the J. P. in 1841 stating he had lost the original deed. Chastain was the brother-in-law of George Patterson, the latter being the brother of the same John Patterson. Persimmon Creek is very close to the Pattersons’ property, just to the west of Patterson Gap, Patterson Gap Rd, and Patterson Creek – all due west of Dillard, GA in Rabun Co.

6.      1832 July 6 – Robert H. Patterson, “List of Letters remaining in the post-office at Athens, Ga. on the 1st of July, 1832… Robert H. Patterson …”
WP: Robert H. Patterson, b. 1796, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. This one is tricky. Another Robert H. Patterson married Martha Moore in Elbert Co., GA on 12-05-1824. In 1829, Robert H. and Martha Patterson also had a letter remaining in the post office in Athens which is Clarke Co., GA. There was a Robert H. Patterson in Clarke in 1830 on the census. Researchers of the Elbert Co. couple say that Robert was born in 1799 in Rutherford Co., NC. But they also say he didn’t have any children before 1830 and that he died in 1874 in Penton, AL. On the other hand, the son of John and Margaret was born in 1796 in York Co., SC, grew up in Buncombe Co., NC, later lived in Alabama then Arkansas and settled in Rusk Co., TX where he died in the 1860’s. This letter in Athens could have been either man by that name. No relation is known between the two.

7.      1833 Feb 2 – Joseph Patterson, “RABUN Sheriff’s Sale – On the first Tuesday in March next, will be sold at the court-house in the town of Clayton, Rabun county, within the usual hours of sale, the following property, to wit: One Lot of Land, No. 42 (forty-two) in the first District of Rabun county, levied on as the property of Joseph Patterson, to satisfy a fi. fa. Issued from a Justice’s Court in favor of John Catlett, for the use of Allen Gilliland vs. said Patterson. Levy made and returned to me by a constable. T. M. Henson, D. Sh’ff. February 2.”
WP: Joseph Black Patterson, b. 1789, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Rabun Co., GA lots were drawn in the 1820 Land Lottery. Districts 1, 3, 4 and 5 held lots of 490 acres each, while District 2 held lots of 250 acres. Lot 42 in District 1 appears to have been the property of John Patterson in 1830, and again later it was too. John obtained other lots, so perhaps he had sold Lot 42 to his brother Joseph in the early 1830’s? Allen Gilleland was enumerated on the 1830 census on page 231 line 14, thus he was 18 lines on the census after John Patterson. Catlett is not found in the 1830 Rabun census.  However, he was in Franklin Co., GA in 1830 next to a George Patterson.

9.      1834 Dec 27 – John Patterson, “Rabun Sheriff’s Sale. On the first Tuesday in February next, Will be sold at the Court House in the town of Clayton, Rabun County, within the usual hours of sale, the following property, to wit: Three tracts of land, Nos. 58, 59 and 42, in the first district of Rabun county : levied on as the property of John Patterson, to satisfy a fi. fa. Issued from the Superior Court of Rabun county, in favor of Thomas Woods vs. said Patterson. Property pointed out by said Patterson… Dec. 27, 1834. James George, Sheriff.”
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. In other places John Patterson was listed as living in Rabun County in Capt. Wood’s district. In 1830 on the census, Thomas Woods and John Patterson were enumerated on the same page (230), Woods on line 6 next to Elijah Brady, and Patterson on line 21. This was on the Lot 42 land for John Patterson. This is the first time we see Lots 58 and 59 in the mix.

10.  1835 May 20 – John Patterson, “GEORGIA, RABUN COUNTY. JOHN PATTERSON of Capt. Ellis’ District, tolls before Jeremiah York, an acting Justice of the Peace, one estray sorrel Mare, with a blaze in her forehead; one white hind foot; some small saddle marks; four years old, four feet ten inches high; appraised by Andrew McClain and Jeffrey York, to sixty dollars. This 9th day of April, 1835. A true extract from the minutes of the estray book. J. Capeheart, C.I.C.”
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Elijah Ellis must have been Capt. Ellis. He lived near John Patterson in 1830, on line 8 of page 230, next to Jeffrey York (line 9). John Patterson was line 21 of the same page. There were McClains in Rabun in 1830. But no Andrew McClain. There was an Andrew McClure on same page as Patterson and York, on line 13. I confirmed against the original census image, and it was Andrew McClure. I suspect this to have been the identity of the appraiser. This tells me John Patterson is still living near Lot 42. Perhaps Lots 58 and 59 were close by as well?

Any person finding or delivering said Pocket Book and contents to me in Athens, shall be liberally rewarded. D. Dodson.”
WP: Joseph Black Patterson, b. 1789, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Athens was in Clarke Co., GA. The Robert H. Patterson recorded in Clarke Co., GA census in 1830 is believed to be the brother of Joseph Patterson, both sons of John Patterson and Margaret Black. Also, it’s interesting that one of the other men indebted to Mr. Dodson was named Charles Ivy. Joseph Patterson later had a grandson named Charles Ivey Patterson.

WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. Now there are four tracts of land, not just three. Lot 63 has appeared in the mix for the first time. John Derrick lived on line 9 of page 229 in the 1830 Rabun census, the page before John Patterson. Bullock is not found on the 1830 Rabun census.

Walker... Mar. 31, 1838. John Patterson, Sheriff.”
WP: John Patterson Jr., b. 1798, son of John and Margaret Black Patterson. There were three John Pattersons in the Rabun Co., GA Patterson clan. The brothers John and Robert who were born in the 1760’s, each had a son named John. John Sr. has not been found to have lived in Rabun. He may have, but no proof has been located and it doesn’t make sense for him to have been sheriff if he never owned land there. John Jr. we know did live there, and it is a safe assumption that the sheriff was him. Robert’s son John E. Patterson was living in Cannon Co., TN by the 1820’s, and was still there in 1840.
