Children of Mary Ann Patterson and Silas Kemp:

William C. Patterson & Mary Jane Cravens
16 Mar 1832: William C. Patterson was born in Tennessee. Could his middle name be Campbell?

26 Feb 1862: William died in the Civil War. He may've been the William Patterson who served as a Private in Company A, 3rd TN Cavalry. Widow Mary Jane eventually collected a widow's pension, #W67. Virginia Stephenson claims he died on 16 Feb 1862. One of the dates is obviously a typo.
1863: Gilbert Patterson is listed as the administrator of the 97 acres previously held by William; but in 1865 and 1866 William himself is listed as the owner. Were these last two entries simply to indicate the estate of the deceased William?

James Adkins Patterson (c. 1858 - )

1851 Tax List, Weakley County, TN (District 9): Henderson Fowler was listed, but without any land.
5 Oct 1854: Elizabeth married H. W. Fowler in Dresden, Weakley County, TN. The ceremony was performed by L. B. M. Dunlap, M. G.
1858 Weakley County Tax List (District 9): 80 acres valued at $800; 1 slave.
14 Jun 1860 Census, Weakley County, TN (District 9, Locust Grove P.O.): Farmer H. W.

Mary Fowler, age 14, who's also listed as a "domestic servant", is in the home of son Gilbert Patison. Could that be Mary Louisa once again, enumerated twice? Two-year-old Elizabeth is still present in the household in 1880, listed as a granddaughter. The categorization as "domestic servant" shouldn't be taken too literally. This census taker apparently just considered that synonymous with "works on the farm" or "helps with the housework".
Henderson Fowler disappeared from the records after 1870.
Children of Elizabeth Jane Patterson and Henderson Fowler:
Mary Louisa Fowler (m. William Porter Jones 26 Nov 1878)
Jonathan Kilgore Fowler (27 Aug 1858 - 25 Apr 1940; m. Thursie Jane Thornton 4 Nov 1881)
Elizabeth Fowler (c. 1868 - )
Gilbert Benjamin Patterson & Candice Virginia Roberts
18 Jan 1837: Gilbert was born in Weakley County, TN. He was nicknamed "Bunk". Dorothy Riddle Marsh claims a birth year of 1839.
27 Jan 1838: Candice Roberts was born in Tennessee, probably in Henry County. Her parents were John Roberts and Eunice Unity Rogers. Her name was written as "Candice" on the 1880 Census, "Candis" on the 1870 Census and on her tombstone.
1859 Tax List, Weakley County, TN: Gilbert was listed with 35 acres valued at $115. This land was apparently given to him by Gilbert since the latter had held 235 acres in 1858, but only 200 in 1859. In 1860, Gilbert Senior was again is shown with 235, while Gilbert Junior did not appear. In 1861 and 1862 Gilbert Junior was listed with 1 poll but no land. In 1863 and 1865 he held approximately 128 acres.
12 Jun 1860 Census, Weakley County, TN (District 9): Gilbert 21, a farmer, was enumerated in the household of [brother] Constable M. C. Patterson.
G. B. Patterson served as a Private in Company A, 15th TN Infantry from 15 Aug 1861 to 1 Nov 1861 and from 1 Jan 1862 until 1 May 1862; then in D Company, Third TN Cavalry from 24 Dec 1862 until 14 May 1864. He may have been disabled due to wounds suffered.
1 Mar 1866: Gilbert and Candice were married in Weakley County.
According to Virginia Stephenson, "Bunk" was a Primitive Baptist; but is this correct when we consider that his father was an ardent Methodist who was incorrectly identified by Stephenson as a Primitive Baptist? Or did Bunk become a Primitive Baptist upon his marriage to Candice?
17 Nov 1869: Gilbert Patterson made a deed of gift of 49 acres to G. B. Patterson. The parcel adjoined [brother] J. W. Patterson and J. Hatcher. Witnesses: G. W. and William Campbell.  G .W. was married to bunk's aunt, Elizabeth Patterson Campbell; William was G. W. and Elizabeth's son.
8 Aug 1870 Census, Dresden, Weakley County, TN (District 9): Farmer Gilbert Patison 31, born in TN; Candis 28; Austin H. 3; Walter 2; Fanny age 3 months, born April; domestic servant Mary Fowler, age 14. They were enumerated next to [brother] John and Martha Patison. Mary Fowler was actually Gilbert's niece.
15 Feb 1870: G. B. Patterson purchased 48 acres from Martha R. Jones of Christian County, KY for $250 in cash and $42.50 owing. The parcel was described as lying in District 9, S5 R1 adjoining Sam Cooper, Patterson himself, and Kenneday. Witnesses: J. R. Mosely and A. H. Overton. But was the buyer Gilbert Senior or Junior? In all these deeds, I've assumed that Gilbert Senior was identified as "Gilbert" and Gilbert Junior as "G. B.", as they had been in the deed of gift dated 17 Nov 1869. Assumptions can be wrong.
Son Benjamin Gilbert Patterson, wrote on 9 Mar 1936 that: "My father 'Bunk' Patterson, built the first house in Greenfield. It was used for a saloon and ten-pin alley. He built several of the first houses. He was a fine carpenter."
9 Apr 1873: G. B. Patterson sold 3 and 7/10 acres of right of way to the MS Central Railroad for $1. This may have been Senior or Junior, but again, I'm making an assumption based upon the initials.
18 Jun 1880 Census, Greenfield, Weakley County, TN: House Carpenter age 41, TN TN TN; Candice V. 42, TN NC NC; Henry A. 13; Walter L. 11; Fannie A. 10; Benjamin C. 8; Fane R. 4; Allie 2.
23 Nov 1880: G. B. Patterson sold a 1/2 acre lot with house in Greenfield to W. E. McAdams for $400. This lot was located on the eastern side of the railroad adjoining J. W. Patterson.
6 Mar 1882: G. B. Patterson sold a Greenfield lot on the west side of the railroad tracks adjoining the church and Locust Street to C. J. Adcock for $200.
11 Nov 1886: Gilbert died and was buried in Patterson Cemetery. His tombstone carries a Masonic emblem.
Candice applied for a Confederate Widow's Pension.
2 Jun 1900 Census, Greenfield, Weakley County, TN: Widow Canvis Patterson 62, , born in Jan 1838, TN TN TN, married for 21 years,; cratemaker Walter S. 29, born in Nov 1870; cratemaker Fain, born Aug 1875; boxmaker Allie 22, born May 1879.
23 Jul 1907: Candice Roberts Patterson died in Greenfield and was buried beside her husband in Patterson Cemetery. Dorothy Riddle Marsh claims her death date was 24 July
Children of Gilbert Benjamin and Candice Roberts Patterson: The names and dates were recorded in both the Roberts and the Patterson family bibles.

John Wesley Patterson and 1) Martha Heath 2) Lamarie Childress
1 Jun 1846: John Wesley Patterson was born in Weakley County, TN.
12 May 1848: Martha Pernela Heath was born in Tennessee. As both her parents were born in KY; she may have been a sister of Nancy Heath, wife of Thomas Patterson, John's brother. In addition, Charles and Andrew Patterson, two more of John's six brothers, married Heaths.
Although described as a former "Federal soldier" in one obituary, John attended a reunion of Confederate soldiers in Sharon in the early 1920s and was described as an "ex-Confederate soldier" upon his death in 1928. There was a Private John Patterson in Company D, 3rd TN Cavalry.
25 Jan 1866: John married Martha Pernela Heath at the home of S. H. Heath, the ceremony performed by Rev. Thomas H. Covington.
8 Aug 1870 Census, Weakley County, TN (District 9): Farmer John Patison 24, born in TN, with real and personal property valued at $450 and $300 respectively; Martha 22, born in TN; James 3 and Leonidas 1. They were enumerated next to [brother] Gilbert and Candis Patison.

20 Nov 1882: D. M. and Arteena C. Jones sold 150 acres on the waters of Mud Creek in District 8 to J. W. Patterson for $2,000. The parcel adjoined Vaux, B. C. Dents, and C. L. Underwood. D. M. Jones was Delbert Marion, brother of John Miller Jones, who had married John's sister Caroline Patterson.
6 Sep 1886: Martha Heath Patterson died. On her tombstone in Patterson Cemetery: "M. P. Patterson 12 May 1848 - 6 Sep 1886 Wife of J.W. Patterson". Gilbert and Mildred Patterson were later buried next to her.
I'm unable to locate the the exact date of John's marriage to Lamarie Jane Childress, born in Dec 1848, but according to the later censuses, it occurred c. 1893.
John apparently moved to Sharon in Weakley County about 1898 as his 1928 obituary reported that he had spent 30 years there.
12 Jun 1900 Census, Weakley County, TN (District 19): Farmer 53, born Jun 1846, TN NC TN, married 8 years; Lamarie 51, born Dec 1848, TN TN TN, mother of 0 children; Albert Sidney 22, born Dec 1877; Arthur Herman 20, born Oct 1879; daughter Auvergne 18, born Nov 1881; Willie Dennis 16, born Apr 1884. All sons labored on the farm. 
20 Mar 1903: Dresden Enterprise: "We are in receipt of a long letter from Esq. J. W. Patterson, who is in Old Mexico, telling of the many things seen in that historic country. Esq. Patterson says you have to mind your p's and q's when trading with the natives there, or they will charge three prices for an article. He says he will start home in a few days without investing in Mexico property. Tennessee is good enough for him." Then in a subsequent issue was the following: "John Patterson has returned home after prospecting in Mexico, and brought a parrot with him."
15 Feb 1908: John attended the funeral of Dr. John Miller Jones in Newport, AR. The newspaper stated that he resided in Sharon, TN.
20 Apr 1910 Census, Sharon Weakley County, TN (District 8): John W. Patterson 63, merchant selling dry goods, married 16 years to his third wife; Lamera J. 61, married 16 years to her first husband. They're living on Elm Street. Was John married between the death of Martha and his marriage to Lamarie Jane?
2 Jun 1916: He was one of the 24 veterans attending a celebration at the home of John Terell.
3 Feb 1920 Census, Sharon, Weakley County, TN (District 8): John W. Patterson 73, TN NC TN, no profession; wife Jane age 71, born TN.
Dec 1923: Lamarie Jane Patterson died and was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. John moved in with his daughter, Mrs. C. B. Brooks. In the Patterson Bible, "Famrie Childress Patterson" is written with a death date of Nov 1923.
16 Jan 1928: John died at the Brooks home, apparently from a heart attack.
Another of that fast fading, thin gray line has answered the last roll call and is resting from his labors. Mr. John Patterson passed away Monday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. B. Brooks, in Sharon.
On Saturday he was stricken while down town and carried home. He continued to sink until the end came at 6 a.m. Monday. He had a peculiar form of heart trouble. Mr. Patterson was an ex-Confederate soldier. He was a good citizen, a loyal, devout member of the Methodist Church and loved and esteemed by all who knew him. No finer Christian gentleman ever lived. He was courteous and polite and cordial to all and all will miss his congenial greetings. He had been a citizen of Sharon some thirty years. Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church Wednesday by his pastor, Rev. M. L. Davis, with internment at Woodlawn by the side of his companion, who preceded him in death many years ago. To the sorrowing children, of whom there are five - four sons and one daughter - the sympathy of this people is extended.
Funeral services were held Wednesday morning at 10:00 o'clock at the Methodist Church, conducted by Rev. Davis, over the remains of John Patterson, a Federal soldier, who passed away Monday morning at 6 o'clock at the home of his only daughter, Mrs. C. B. Brooks. Mr. Patterson was 81 years and about 7 months old. He was twice married, his first wife was a Miss Heath, and his second Miss Childress, a sister of our townsman Allen Childress. His first wife was the mother of 10 children. Two boys, Tom and Will, and one daughter, Mrs. Vera Pratt, preceded him in death. The daughter, Mrs. C. B. Brooks of this place, and six sons, Monroe of Fredonia, Ky; Lee, of Birmingham, Ala; Dr. Quince of Little Rock, Ark; Sid and Arthur of Birmingham, Ala; and John of Vivian, La, are still living and all were present for the funeral. A number of grandchildren and great grandchildren also survive. His last wife left no children. She died December 1923. Since that time Mr. Patterson has lived most of the time with his daughter. He had been quite feeble for the past year, confined to his room most of the time for several weeks, but had seemingly been better for the past two weeks, and had been to town twice; but on last Saturday he fell on the streets and had to be carried home. He revived to some extent but at 7 o'clock Sunday afternoon he became unconscious and never rallied again. He had high blood pressure and suffered with his heart. Mr. Patterson was a high toned gentleman and was held in high esteem by the citizens of Sharon and community, where he spent most of his life. He was a member of the Methodist Church and the Masonic order. Much sympathy is extended the bereaved family
