The name Henry Patton continues in the records. The second Henry appears to be the one who was active in the local militia. In 1774 he was an ensign and was paid for 47 days service as leader of a detachment of soldiers. He
also served 37 days under Saptain James Robertson (Kegley, Soldiers, pp 38, 42). The names of the men who served in his detachment were: William McGee, Thomas Carte, Abraham Fielder, Richard Hinds, Joseph Blackmore, Edward
Blackmore, William Carr, William Leason, Jr. Blackmore, Thomas Patton, Vincent Hobbs, William Boydstone, Israel Harman, Adam Wygall, Lawrence Waggoner, John Smith, Michael Glumph, Jr. Totten, Comfort Bluster, Thomas Cecil,
Jeremiah Whitten, Thomas Shannon and Thomas Pickens (original record in the Auditor's Accounts, Virginia Stte Library Archives).

Henry Patton's military career continued over the years. He was recommended as a second lieutenant in Captain Cloyd's Company in 1778, was a captain from 1779 to 1786, a major in 1787, and a lieutenant colonel in 1790. A list
of the men of his company on March 24, 1781 accompanies this sketch. These were men of the neighborhood between the ages of eighteen and fifty. In 1785 Henry Patton claimed pay for patrolling for 25 days, and requested pay
for thirty diets (Summers, Annals, pp 685, 722, 805, 806, 813, 828, 831; list from Kegley, Militia of Montgomery County, p. 36, from original records at Montgomery County Courthouse.)

In 1779 Henry Patton was recommended for the position of justice of the peace and in 1782 took the oath as justice of the peace in Chancery and Oyer and Terminer. In 1782 he was taxed on one slave, fourteen houses and
twenty-four cattle, in addition to his land. The Henry Patton who became sheriff in 1793 appears to be the same Henry who served in the militia (Summers, Annals, pp. 733, 760, 773, 836; Kegley, Tax Lis, p. 25).

Henry's wife was Martha Randolph. In 1802 they made a deed of gift to Isaac Patton for lands on Thorn Spring, ajoining the Williamsons who were located in the southern part of the Springfield tract. It is assumed that Isaac
Patton was their son, because of the gift of land. Isaac sold off these lands to Gordon Cloyd, John Caddall and James Crain. Isaac Patton served as ensign and captain in the militia, and was sworn in as deputy sheriff in 1793
(Summers, Annals, pp. 837, 842, 846, 864, Montgomery County Deed Boopks C, p. 550; D, p. 416; E, pp 394, 598).

In another deed of gift Henry and wife Martha Patton gave parts of the 840 acres where they then lived to William McDowell, who with his wife Polly then sold to William Muirhead whose land it adjoined. William McDowell of
Greenbrier County had married Polly, the daughter of Henry Patton in 1798. Matilda, another daughter of Henry and Martha, married Joseph Davidson and moved to Mercer County, Virgijia (now West Virginia). In 1806 Henry and
Marth Patton sold land to Joseph Davison and also to another son-in-law, William George, who had married their daughter Jennet or Jenny (Montgomery County Deed Books, C, p. 611; E, pp 470, 583; K, p. 457; Tazewell County Deed
Book 1, p. 248; Tazewell County records as found in Schreiner Yantis, Archives of Tazewell County, pp. 64, 214, among others.)

Other lands taken up by this Henry Patton were sold in 1812 to Gordon, Thomas, and David Cloyd, being 1,000 acres on the south side of the New River, and in 1824 when Henry and Martha Patton were living in Tazewell County, they
sold a small tract of 6 acres on Thorn Spring (present Pulaski County), to Henry Patton, Jr. and a tract of 166 acres to Sebastian Sygle (Montgomery County Deed Books F, p. 190, H, pp 539, 625).

In summary, it appears that Henry Patton, the soldier of the Revolution and the husband of Martha Randolph, was the father of Isaac, Mary or Polly who married William McDowell in 1798, Matilda who married Joseph Davidson in
1789, and Jennet/Jenny who married William George in 1792. There may have been other children. (Montgomery County Marriage Records; family records of descendants of William George).

It has not been learned just where Henry and his wife Martha Patton died. Henry left no will in Tazewell County.
