(Research):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 masse, from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The earliest records of Augusta County, Virginia, of which Pendleton was then a part, were in the year 1747. At this time the Pattons 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 Hiatt 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, 1735. William Gooch, Esq., Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, stated "Know ye that...an order of our Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and council 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 brought 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, etc., unto John Hiet (sic), Jr. of the county of Lancaster in the Province of Pennsylvania, one certain tract or parcel of land containing 3?0 acres ... on the north side of the Opeckon, above the lower end of Paul Willian's land."
The Pattons and Dyers evidently grew and prospered, 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 children 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 Shenandoah 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 Pattons and Dyers. The Pattons, apparently, were a restless 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, Lockridges 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 homestead of 620 acres. To Hannah Kesiter he bequeathed 427 acres in Hardy County; to his grandson Roger he left 20 pounds; to his wife and executor, a dower interest 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 servant and nine horses and colts.
The murder of Roger and Willam 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.

Note: Will dated January 2, 1756 proved March 10, 1757 in Augusta County, VA. Migrated from Ireland in the early 1730's. He was probably induced to come to America by his Uncle John Lewis who came to Philadelphia in 1729. He met up with his uncle in Philadelphia and later moved into Lancaster County, PA, where he purchased two parcels of land, the first purchase was made on March 23, 1736 and consisted of 200 acres. He aquired 200 additional acres in April 1744. William, James, thomas, Rober and Hugh also had land here. John later moved to Augusta County, VA, finally settling in that part of the county which later became Pendleton County, WVA. He purchased several tracts of land in the region known as "The Buffalo Meados" near the present town of Franklin. Here he erected his house on the banks of the South Fork of the South Branch of the Patomac River.
