The only Thomas Patton on the 1790 census is in Anne Arundel Co. and has six children, which is about right.. There are Hearns in the St. Pauls records in Baltimore and there are Hearns in Anne Arundel. Michael Hearn ca. 1750 to 1813 has daus Sophia m. Edward Iglehart 15 Dec. 1788, and Anne m. Cornelius Iglehart 4 Feb. 1803. John Hearn m. Mary Summers 20 May 1807. The Igleharts are on the 1790 Anne Arundel Co. census.

Sullivan Co, IN Letter of Administration to Isaac Patten 18 Sept 1847 for Mary Patton, intestate. 1850 census for Richard and Isaac, both b. in Maryland.

      Evidence suggests that Thomas emigrated to Butler County, Ohio, then to Hamilton County. He died in Fayette County, Indiana.

      Thomas Patton was appointed Justice of the Peace by the newly formed county government on September 7, 1821. See the History of Fayette County....
      ===
      Thomas was buried in the Burk Cemetery, according to an article published by the DAR in Connersville, Indiana. City Librarian states that Thomas owned the property the cemetery was located upon--but that appears erroneous. Subject property (and cemetery) is located several hundred feet west of the west boundary of the Daniel Hoover farm--which Thomas sold to Daniel and Polly (the daughter of Thomas) in about 1821. See www.ronsgen.com for more information.
      ===
      "Thomas Patton married Mary Hearn on 9 May 1779 in St. Pauls's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland. He may have been still in the service of his country (Revolutionary War Patriot), which could explain not marrying in Anne Arundel County. Thomas Pattin appears in the 1790 federal census of Anne Arundel county, with three males under 16, and four females."

      "Thomas and Mary had four children while they lived in Maryland between the years 1780 and 1790. Their son, Isaac, was born there in Maryland 15 November 1787. They moved to Butler County, Ohio in 1790. Their daughter, Nancy, was born in 1792, and there were several more children after that. In 1814 they moved to Franklin County (now Fayette County), Indiana where they purchased 100 acres of land. In 1832, at the age of 74, Thomas applied for a Revolutionary War pension, but he evidently died before it could be granted as thee is no record of his receiving a pension. He died in Fayette County, Indiana around the year 1834. Each of the nine surviving children receivd an equal share of that 100 acres. The widow received her dower rights. Mary Hearne Patton died in 1848 in Sullivan County, Indiana,"
      ===
      "...By 1784 Thoomas Patton was in Maryland when Richard Patton was born, if the correct birthplace is given in the 1850 census. Isaac Patton was born 1790 in Maryland according to the cnsus. And if the information in the Pound-Kester book is correct, Nanc Patton was born in 1792 in Ohio. So it would seem that Thomas Patton traveled from Neew Jersey to Maryland before settling in Butler County, Ohio; then Hamilton County, sometime before 1792.

      The Land office in Cincinnaati also sold land in Indiana and we find that Thomas Patton and his son William Patton were among the first settlers of Fayette County, Indiana buying land there in 1813 and 1814 while it was still a part of Wayne County which had been formed from Indian landin 1810. Here in ayette County Thomas Patton died intestate in 1834 still holding a part of his original land purchase of 1814."

      Source: US Census for 1820--Fayette County, Indiana. Daniel Hoover and family are listed, with a Thomas Patton listed directly below. That this Thomas Patton could be anyone other than Mary Polly’s father exceeds the probability of such event. NOTE. See deed of conveyance from Thomas Patton to Daniel Hoover of a portion of his property (80 acres) in Section 34 of Jennings Township. Jennings Township was originally a part of Franklin County, Indiana; from which Fayette County was created in approximately 1810.

      St. Mary Ann’s Church currently has a website, with the following ‘historical narrative’ posted”

      An Introduction to The Episcopal Church
      
You may be wondering what is the Episcopal Church.  We are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion which had its beginning in the years following Martin Luther's protestations against the Roman Catholic church in the 16th Century.  Luther's activities gave birth to Protestantism within Christianity.  In England, the Anglican Church introduced Protestantism but with a distinctly Catholic flavor.
      We worship in a way that is not unlike the Catholic Church.  But we are not in communion with Rome even though most Catholics would find themselves right at home in an Episcopal Church.
       We are between Protestantism 
and Roman Catholicism.

      BALTIMORE COUNTY PETITIONS
      by Robert Barnes
      ===
      The early petitions to the Baltimore County Orphans Court are found in
      Baltimore County Register of Wills (Petitions) 1780-1789 [MSA C399].
      They can yield some fascinating insights into the daily lives and
      problems of Marylanders of the period. The petitions cover a variety
      of topics ranging from the binding out of apprentices to requests for
      government officials to respond to requests. In one petition Absolom
      Butler said he had waited for two days to find out why the judge had
      sent for him. As he was about to leave for Virginia, Butler wanted the
      judge to let him know why his presence was required.
      ===
      The first folder in the series concerns the estate of George Patten.
      In his Last Will and Testament George Patten had made bequests to
      Thomas Patten, Moses Patten, Mrs. Agnew, David Stewart, Nathaniel
      Smith, and Mrs. Butts. Thomas Patten accused David Stewart and
      Nathaniel Smith of acting hastily in applying for letters of
      administration on the estate. Stewart and Smith, in their response
      filed 23 May 1780, stated that George Patten departed this life on or
      about 19 Feb 1778 at which time the libellant, Thomas Patten, was out
      of state. Stewart and Smith waited until May 1778 and then applied for
      letters of administration since no one else had done so.
      ===
      The petitions are arranged chronologically, with the name of the
      deceased on the folder. An alphabetical list of decedents can be found
      at the front of each of the two boxes in the series.
      ===
      The petition series continues under the Baltimore City Register of
      Wills, 1791-1950 [MSA T621].
      ===
      The only Thomas Patton on the 1790 census is in Anne Arundel Co. and
      has six children, about right for my Thomas Patton.

    History and Photo of the current New Bethel Baptist Church
    This church was first organized in 1828, and it's location is only a mile or so from the Patton and Hoover farms. Much research has gone into this church--but we are still unsure if it was a church that the Hoovers or Pattons attended. Most likely, it is not--but research is continuing.

    Thomas Patton was buried in the Burke Cemetery, but today there cannot be found a headstone. This cemetery may have been located on his property at one time.

    St. Mary Ann's Parish Church
    St. Mary Ann's Parish Church
    This is the family church of the Patton Family in Cecil County, Maryland. The Church was initially an Anglican Church, but after the Revolution became Episcopal--largely due to the anti-English sentiment within the colonies.

    In 1706, owing to the lack of the established church on the north shore of the Elk River, the colonial legislature and governor of Maryland established the North Elk Parish. As was the custom in England, the Lord of the Manor on which the parish was to be located, in this case, Henry Harford, the illegitimate son of Frederick, Lord Baltimore, set aside four acres of land for the establishment of the church buildings. Early survey maps indicate that some time between 1709 and 1715 a wooden church was built on this land, the site of the present church, but no details about this first building are know.

    In 1743 the Vestry contracted with Henry Baker for the building of a brick church; at a cost of 300 pounds, to replace the wooden structure.

    Histories

    St. Mary Ann's Parish Church
    A Short History of St. Mary Anne's

    In 1706, owing to the lack of the established church on the northern shore of the Elk River, the colonial legislature and governor of Maryland established the North Elk Parish. As was the custom in England, the Lord of the Manor on which the parish was to be located, in this case, Henry Harford, the illegitimate son of Frederick, Lord Baltimore, set aside four acres of land for the establishment of the church buildings. Early survey maps indicate that sometime between 1709 and 1715 a wooden church was built on this land, the site of the present church, but no details about this first building are known.

    The Reverend Jonas Auren, a Swedish Lutheran clergyman, came to New Sweden late in the 1600's and stayed in America until his death in 1713. Most of this time he was in Cecil County (founded in 1674), preaching for a congregation of English, Swedes, and Finns. This congregation became the congregation of St. Mary Anne's, and the Rev. Mr. Auren its first Rector.

    Upon her death in 1714, Queen Anne bequeathed a sum to be used to establish the Anglican Church in the colonies. St. Mary's received a large Bible, a Book of Common Prayer, and a silver chalice and Paten from this source which are still used on occasion today. It is thought that gratitude for these gifts brought about the addition of Anne to the church's name, resulting in the unique name, St. Mary Anne's.

    In 1743, the Vestry contracted with Henry Baker for the building of a brick church, at a cost of 300 pounds, to replace the old wooden structure. A detailed description of this building can be found in the minutes of the Vestry dated March 1, 1743, and, except for the bell tower, which was added later, the church which was built is the church you see today.

    States he was buried in the Burk Cemetery; which is located several hundred feet from the west boundary of his farm. No record of his burial is found in the original Sextant's documentation; but this DAR record authenticates the belief that he was buried here.
