John C. Patrick Oglethorpe Co., GA

John C. Patrick died about 1815.

His inventory names among "others" VICY value $350; EDE
value $400; ROY value $200 etc. for a total of $2000.  I
don't have any other names.

His widow Olive Steward Patrick Atkinson was the wife of
Cornelius Atkinson who was a wealthy and influencial member
of the community. They died in Newton Co., MS.  I don't know
if any slaves went with them or not.

Edy and others were hired out for the support of John's
orphans, Martha and Susan in 1817.  Martha and Susan were
depending on the county divisions in Butts or Newton Cos.  

Martha married into the Josiah Woods Barber family. 
Sometime after her death, he remarried and eventually moved
into NE TX later settling in the Hill Country.  The family
says he did bring some slaves with him into TX, but I have
no names of them.  Family lore says he released them before
the war, so they would be possibly found in Cass Co., TX and
Commanche Co., TX.
