Hello my name is Tammatha (Patton) Porter DOB 04-22-1958. I have always wonder who I am, my father William Frank Patton Jr died in 1969. I lost contact with the Patton side of my family. My mother just passed 2008. So now I want to know more than ever who am I? My father was germany and black Irsish. So far everyone I have found was born in Missouri as far back 1831. His name was Thomas M. Patton DOD about 1931 he married Marth Ann Gibson ( Gipson) from Missouri in Nov 28, 1850, she was born in 1884. My great grandmother Isabella Riley was from Irland , My Grandmother Tillie Zardt was from Germany. I have nobody to ask my father’s sibling are died. My mother’s madian name was Fingers I found out that it use to be Finger before they came over from Germany. My grandmother’s maidan name was Wright I do not know a lot about this side of my family either. I am righting this to see if you can give me any leads at all. Where to go where to look.
