Re: Patterson, John Wesley -KY Free 1860

MrD asked:
I need help to determine if they were always free and if not how they became free. What records are available to help in this search?
What suggestions do you have as to where I go from here?
This might help answer with your query.

John Patterson is indexed as a mulatto born in England for the 1850 Jefferson County, KY cesnus on Ancestry. The actual census image page does not have anything in the race/color column. His wife (?) Pholomela, also Mulatto, is listed as born in Mass. Do these names sound familiar with YOUR John Patterson's family?

I will check earlier records on Ancestry and let you know what I see.
