Governor George Washington Patterson (1799- 1879)of New York State

He paid $700 for the large stone of New Hampshire Granite,
and had it inscribed with the names of all the Pattersons

Governor Patterson was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Wallace) Patterson.
He graduated from Pinkerton Academy and went to the Genesee Valley, New York
with his brother George. Later, brothers Robert and Peter joined them in New York.
The last brother, Thomas Patterson stayed in Londonderry.
