I. J. Patterson is believed to descend from Scottish Patterson immigrants to America who settled in North Carolina in the early 18th century, migrated to Georgia, then Mississippi and finally Texas. Unfortunately little is known of the early maternal lines that allied with the Pattersons. In Mississippi Pattersons allied with the Wier family that also originated in Scotland then migrated to Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Texas. Although the ancestry of numerous maternal lines are missing, the Wier family was allied to well researched families of Carpenter of North Carolina, Kentucky and Mississippi and Burton of Virginia.
Lillie Ella Green was a granddaughter of the intermarried Burket, Zumwalt and Kent families of Missouri whose members were among the earliest families migrating to the south and western frontiers of America from 1725 to 1835. They were among the first Anglo-Mexican pioneers to settle in Texas when it was still Mexico and contributed to its independence and development. Both the Burket and Zumwalt families including several maternal lines were of German origin and emigrated to America in the early 18th century to Pennsylvania then Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri and finally Texas. The Burkets also allied with the Fisher family of early Philadelphia. The Green family was from North Carolina and Tennessee.
