In Reply to: Patten/Makepeace by Douglas Stewart(11) Aldrich of 835


According to Westmoreland history online, which has much detail on him, John Patten came from Ireland, where he was born (not b. Stoughton). He settled in Morton, MA as a farmer and nail-maker; married Abigail Makepeace (of William Makepeace/Experience Aldrich).
The marriage is recorded in the Norton VR [NVR] as 5 Feb 1755 (p. 291 NVR). He died 28 Dec 1803 (p. 389 NVR)and she died 2 Jun 1795 (p. 388 NVR]. [Town Record has June 2, 1794 but gravestone record has date as "June 2, 1795, in 63d y." Year as 1795 fits age if in her 63rd year] Eight children b. in Norton (by NVR) and one son (John, b. 10/4/1755) settled in Westmoreland, NH.
