Note:
(Reasearch): James Patton, a Scotch-Irish sea captain, settled nea Waynesboro in 1738 and ws instrumental in the developement of Augusta County. He was the first sheriff and tax collector, and Colonel of all militia. He was an elected leader of the Tinklin Spring Presbyterian Church and of the Augusta Parish Vestry. He was an owner of vast tracts of land in western Virginia on which he established settlements of Scotch-Irish immigrants. Colonel Patton was a representative of Virgini at the Treaties of Lancaster and of Logtown with the Iroquis Indiands. He was also a member of the Virginia Hiuse of Burgesses. During the French and Indian War uprisings, he was killed by Indians of Draper's Meados in 1755.
A Chronicle of the American Lineage of the Pattons by C. L. Patton, Springfield, Illinois: 1954
The history of Pendleton County is virtually a history of the Dyer and Patton migration. Both families were large and evidently came into the Shenandoah Valley en masses, from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The earilest records of Augusta County, Virginia, of which Pendleton was then a part, were in the year 1747. At this time the Patton and Dyers were well established in the valley. In 1747 there were but "forty families and two hundred souls" in Pendleton County. In the first records of the county, numerous land transactions had been made between members of the two families. John Hiarr was an English Quaker residing in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His son, John, Jr. married Margaret---and had a daughter Margaret who married William Dyer, Son of Roger Dyer, father-in-law of Matthew Patton. John Hiatt, Sr. and his son John Jr., were each granted land by Lord Fairfax, in a part of the Alexander Ross grant. The land patent book, Volume 17, page 332, Richmond, Virginia shows that, among the first patents issued to settlers on this land was one granted to John Hiet (sic), Jr.,November 12, 1734. William Gooch, Esq., Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, stated "Know ye that,,,an order of our Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and councle of our colony and the Dominion of Virginia, bearing the date the three and twentieth day of April, 1735, granting leave to Alexander Ross and Morgan Bryan, to survey...1000 acres of land for each family of seventy families by them bought into our said colony and settled on the lands in the said order mentioned and to issue patents for the same. We have given, granted, confirmed, ect., unto John Hiet (sic), Jr. of the county of Lancester in the Privince of Pennsylvania, one certain tract of parcel of land containing 3?0 acres... on the north side of the Opeckon, above the lowerend of Paul Willian's land."
The Pattons and Dyers evidently grew and propered, each raising a numerous family and acquiring large acreages of land. From their first settlement in the region of the present town of Winchester, they proceded farther south to the heart of Augusta County near the present town of Staunton and later crossed the mountains to the beautiful valley of the South Branch of the South Fork of the Potomac River.
As the childred of the pioneers became of age and assumed the responsibility of a family, they felt the necessity of further expansion and a trek up the valley of the Shenadoah began. Some of the original settlers and many of their offspring sought residence in the present counties of Rockingham, Rockbridge, Augusta, Highland and Botetourt in Virginia while others pushed farther south into Tennessee and North Carolina. After the Revolutionary War another exodus began into Ohio and Kentucky, later moving into Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. There was a difference in the disposition of the Patton Dyers. The Pattons, apparently, were a resless lot and continually sought new fields, while the Dyers remained in the valley, in the vicinity of their first settlement. In the latter part of the eighteenth century the Pattons had practically disappeared from the valley and were taking up residence in North Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Missouri and Illinois. The Dyers, even at the present time, are a prosperous and a numerous clan in Pendleton County, West Virginia, and in the counties of Augusta and Rockingham in Virginia.
The Pattons and the Dyers were close neighbors of the McCormicks, McDowells, Pickens, Cravens and Hoovers and were intermarried with the Hawes, Keisters, Davises, Harrisons, Lockridge and Lincolns. Roger Dyer, the pioneer, was a leader in his community and acquired large holdings of land. By his will dated February 24, 1757, he left James his homestesd of 620 acres. To Hannah Keister he bequeathed 427 acres in Hardy County: to his grandson Roger he left 20 pounds: to his wife andexecutor, a dower intrest in his estate: to his five sons and daughters, his personal effects. The testators to his will were William Miller, Adam Hider and William Gibson.
William Dyer was also a substantial citizen and owned a negro sevant and nine horses and colts.
The murder of Roger and William and the capture of James and Sarah by the Indians is the subject of a tragic story described later
The original Roger Dyer homestead remains in the possession of his descendants and the Dyers have continued to be among the more wealthy and successful of the Pendleton farmers.
