For several years, I was puzzled about how the PATTESON family fit in as their photos were in more than one family photo album but they didn't seem to have married into the JACKSON family or any other that I knew of. Thanks to information shared by Dawn Domleo of Swaziland based on research done by her brother Rod Patteson of USA, I can see that the connection was with the DICKIE family. Since the spelling can vary, it may or may not be of import that a "Euphemia PATTERSON married a James DICKIE of Killen. There are several inscriptions of note in the KANE GRAVEYARD:

Lizzie Patteson who died Feby 27th Aged 63 years, 1913.

October 19, 2006. Thanks to an email from Dawn DOMLEO in Swaziland, I now know more.

Edward Patteson, son of Mathew Patteson of Cookstown, who was a Presbyterian minister at Bigger in Scotland, married Anne Dickie, daughter of James Dickie of Newtownbalregan, Co. Louth.  Mathew Patteson, Edward's younger brother, married Elizabeth, daughter of the late James Dickie of  Co. Louth.  They were also apparently very good friends of Joseph Dickie, minister of Rathfriland, Co. Down.  The Dickie family lived at Fairhill, Dundalk after the Pattesons left. 

There is also a mention of a Minnie Patteson, who married a Johnson, in one of our relatives letters.  She apparently lived with and looked after my grandfather, Russell Patteson, and his siblings at 8 Castle Rd, Dundalk, when they were orphaned and sent back to Dundalk from Chicago.  This Russell was born in 1881 and was 6 yrs old when sent back to Dundalk.  I don't know how this Minnie Patteson was connected but apparently she died in the slums of Leeds after an awful marriage.(MY NOTE: see mention of Leeds above in obit of Benjamin)

Matthew PATTESON, Belfast
Probably a more recent photo of above.
