John S. Patillo Timeline

From the book Patillo, Pattillo, Pattullo and Pittillo Families Compiled By Melba C. Crosse:
JOHN S. PATTILLO d. 1832 [sic], Tex., and was buried on the Trinity River in that state. He was enumerated on the 1830 census of Gallatin Co., Ill.  According to family legend, John S. Pattillo came to America from France ca 1801. He went to what is now the State of Texas and received a Spanish land grant of 320 acs. on the Trinity River. Two surveys, by virtue of this grant, show that 128 acs. fell in what is now Coleman Co. and 192 acs. in Trinity Co. There is a record in Groveton, Trinity Co., Tex., which shows that the heirs of John S. Pattillo transferred 192 acs. of land in this county on Alabama Creek, about 9 1/2 miles N 2.5 degrees E from Sumter "being part of the land they are entitled to by virtue of Cert. 424 issued by the Board of Land Commissioners of Rusk Co., Tex." Dated 19 May 1851. Done at Austin Sept. 1872; filed Mar. 1895. (Vol. "O", p. 592) Bernice Pattillo, a descendant of John S., has in her possession papers which were sent to her father by Jas. B.
