I descend from the following families, Bailey, Crane, Crosby , Palmer,Roscoe, Sears, Towner, Wakeman, Yale from Patterson and Brewster. The Vignettes of Patterson's Past is a very well written book, and the photos are excellent. Patterson is still a very quaint town.

My wife's mother's father was a Brown who was a descendent of Elisha Brown of Patterson, New York. There is not written information that I have been able to find that provides information on the ancestors of Elisha Brown of Patterson, New York.
