My Patterson Connections
The shot above is rare. We have few showing all the Patterson children. Seated in the middle are James Marshall Patterson and his wife Caroline Arianna Nichols Raymond and their four children: John Edward “Jack” stands in back, Margaret Adelaide is seated far left, Gerald Ramsay “Jerry” is on the right, and youngest sister, Marion, in front. Another daughter, Pauline, died very young.
The photo here is Margaret Adelaide Patterson and Herman G Appell on their wedding day. They are my grandparents.
