William Patterson was born in Mochrum, Wigtownshire c.1807. He married Elizabeth McClure c.1826.
Elizabeth MccLure was born in Penninghame (Newton Stewart) c.1810.
My interest in William Patterson's family is that his daughter, Margaret, was my great(x2) grandmother. Her 1st husband was Samuel Chisholm who was my great(x2) grandfather.
One of Margaret's sisters was Eglantine Patterson, she married Neil Milroy and they lived in Kells and Dalbeattie.
In the 1871 census Eglantine's niece, Mary Chisholm, was living with the Milroy family.
Neil and Eglantine had a son called Neil and Margaret Patterson had a daughter called Eglantine with her 2nd. husband, James Skimming. The two cousins, Neil (jnr) and Eglantine (jnr) married.
