Hope you all had a Thanksgiving bountiful in blessings and thanks!
Have a(nother) puzzler for you, so put on your thinking caps:
A marriage certificate filed in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1868, lists the groom
"Seth PHILANSON Patterson" and the bride as Hulda Foot. This Seth is a brother
(the only one I know of so far) of my great-great-grandfather, Darwin
Patterson. Both Darwin and Seth were born in the 1820's in Delaware County,
NY. I know from family records that their father was Thomas Patterson and their
mother, I think, was Sally ____, born ca. 1795. I am wondering if their
mother's maiden name was "PHILANSON".
But has anyone ever come across this surname (if it is) of "PHILANSON"???? I
can't find it anywhere! It must be a name that was known around Delaware co. in
the early 1800's!
Thanks in advance!
