PATTERSON. I'm tracing my great grandfather and his family from Turtle Creek. William Benjamin Patterson - March 21/1862 - October 1/1948.

PEARSON.  I am trying to find the parents of Solomon Mann PEARSON (SMP), born about 1821 in Hopewell. SMP had 3 wives and 9 children. SMP married Margaret STILES, 8 Oct 1840 and they had Gabriella (b abt 1842) and Sarah (b abt 1845). I found Sarah on the 1851 census in Hopewell (age 6, with her STILES relatives), but no further trace of either Gabriella or Sarah after that. SMP married Eliza PARKIN 22 Dec 1853 in Salisbury. They had Horace (b abt 1854, no further info), Laura (b abt 1858, d 1 Oct 1873, buried Maple Leaf Cemetery, Ontario), Mary Elizabeth (b 1858, nurse in Cuba, d 1940 Jamaica), and George Randolph (my ggrandfather, 1865-1947). Eliza died 24
Mar 1868. SMP married Mary A. COLPITTS 1869. They had Thomas WIlliam (b 1871, d 1941 in BC) and Katie (b 1874, d 8 Jan 1878, buried Maple Leaf  Cemetery, Ontario). In about 1881 SMP moved to BC and was one of the first settlers of Lulu Island (now Richmond) south of Vancouver British Columbia. SMP died 28 Sep 1903 and is buried in Mountain View Cemetery, Vancouver. SMP was a tanner/currier in NB and Ontario, then a farmer in BC. He was Baptist in NB, but he listed New Jeruselum as his religion in 1871 in Ontario. I believe SMP had a brother Elisha (witness on a marriage of SMP) who I have traced to Kansas. See,
