!DEATH: Inventory of Estate of Mary Patterson, Loudoun County, Virginia, 1763. John Marc Wheat has in his possession a copy of a property inventory that may have been made to pay estate taxes.

During the interim, the parish vestries performed many civil functions such as the assessment or collection of taxes, or 'tithes' as they were called then. Such was the case when Cameron Parish was created in 1748, nine years ahead of the establishment of Loudoun County in 1757." p. 60: Patterson (Paterson), Samuel 61-62.
But see letter from Dorie Hopkins. Mary Boone's husband was William Patterson, a veteran of the French & Indian War and commanded at battle of Muncy Hills. The source appears to be J.F. Meginness, Otzinachson: A History of the West Branch Valley of the Susquehanna. Republished in 1991 by the Lycoming County Historical Society, 858 W. Fourth Street, Williamsport, PA 17701-5824. (717) 326-3326. In section on the Battle of Muncy Hills, cites a "Capt. Patterson." In other section, cites a "William Patterson" who bought property. Unclear if this is our Patterson.
