WILLIAM DU BOIS' HISTORY OF THE PATTERSON FAMILY

Randy Snyder posted the following in this week's Region 8 newsletter, published by Early American Coppers, Inc. With permission of moderator Bill Eckberg I'm reprinting it here with minor format changes. He discovered a history of the Patterson family written in 1847 by W. E. DuBois of the U.S. Mint, and there are some bits of mint history here. -Editor
I found this little goodie while doing some biographical research and I thought that more than a few of you folks would like to give it a read. It's a family biography of the Pattersons written for the descendants by a family member in 1847. It's a little over 100 pages.

It's on Google and it's FREE! I have already downloaded it to a PDF and burned it to a CD to make it a part of my library. You middle date folks gotta check this out. The author is William Ewing Du Bois.

Go to: books.google.com/advanced_book_search

Then type in "robert patterson mint" in the top search line and click "full view only" in the lower portion then click search. It should come up as the second book down.

Or try this for a direct route to the cover: books.google.com/books?id=zo1JAAAAMAAJ&printsec

The following is an image I took from page 64 of the book, A Record of the Families of Robert Patterson (The Elder) -Editor
