Richard B. Patterson II (1869-1930) was a shoe salesman. (b. April 1869, Pennsylvania, USA - d. before February 15, 1930, Lansdowne, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 19050, USA)



He was born in April of 1869, in Pennsylvania according to the 1900 US Census.


Richard had the following siblings: Cornelia M. Patterson (1863-1940) who married Edwin Webb; Robert Patterson; Grace E. Patterson; and Louise Patterson.


They appear in the 1880 United States Census living in Manhattan in New York.

First marriageEdit

There is a "Richard B. Patterson, Jr." from New York that married Blanche E. Kingsmore on November 9, 1884 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If this is our Richard B. Patterson, Jr., it would explain his children, John and Leona. It is possible that Blanche died on or just after May 29, 1892, for the birth of her daughter. Richard would then have remarried to Mary Ellen Burke on July 21, 1892, just two months later.


Second marriageEdit

Richard married Mary Ellen Burke (1870-1957) aka Mamie Burke, on July 21, 1892 in Jersey City, New Jersey. His marriage certificate lists this as his first marriage, but may be in error.

Jersey CityEdit

Richard and Mary appear in the 1900 United States Census living at 28 Atlantic Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey. In the household are their two children age 10 and 12, but Richard and Mary have only been married for 9 years, and both list this as their first marriage on their marriage certificate. In 1910 Richard and Mary have moved to Delaware County, Pennsylvania and have the following people in the household: William Burke (1845-1919) and Margaret Kane (1834-1912), who are Mary's parents; and Leona and John, their children. In 1920 the family is now living on Cedar Road in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the household now includes: John Joseph Hammelbacher I who had married Leona; and John and Leona's child: John Joseph Hammelbacher II (1918-?) who disappeared.


Richard Patterson died around February 13, 1930.


His widow moved to Villanova Avenue in Mailmont, Ridley Park Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.


Richard was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Yeadon, Pennsylvania on February 15, 1930. There is no marker for any of the people in this plot. Richard is buried with: William Burke; and Margaret Kane, who are his in-laws:
