This association of McDowell and or Patterson intrigues me. My Irish descendants were from Newtonards in County Down Gt.Gt.Grandfather William Paterson. My Gt.Grandfather Hugh Paterson from Ballyhenry in the parish of Newtownards was born in 1825 and came to Glasgow in the 1840s ( a handloom weaver who set himself up in business with a Beaming Shop in the east-end of the city. As for McDowall. My mother spoke much of an Aggie or Agnes McDowall - believe it or not she gave birth to eleven sets of twins (that must be a record) although not all survived. I once possessed a photograph of she and her husband but sadly missing from my archive now. I expect you know that the town of Paterson, New Jersey was named in honour of a William Paterson who came to the USA as a child with his parents. He was a clever lad who became a lawyer and a senator and had something to do with the framing of the constitution of the USA which is why he was honoured in that way. I have reason to believe that my Gt.Gt. Grandfather is of that bloodline but have never been able to prove. The Mormon Temple Library in Arizona will confirm the details of William Paterson and his claim to fame through his activities in the US government and the naming of the town Paterson in his honour.

Hi There!

All I know is that the Agnes or Aggie McDowall or M'Dole on my family tree gave birth to eleven sets of twins - not all of which survived. I once possessed a photograph of Aggie and her husband (whose name I do not know) but foolishly destroyed it years ago. I don't quite know where she fits in to my Paterson/McMillan or Mullen Irish connections. My great grandfather was namely, Hugh Paterson of Ballyhenry (Weaver) bor 1825. I wonder if any of this helps you.

I am looking for any information on Jane McDowell b1828. She had a son James b1846 who was adopted (I think) by Jane's eventual husband (Robert Patterson) and changed his name to Patterson.
From the LDS website Jane was born in Comber and from Army records James was born in Newtonards

The LDS website state James christened on 5th April 1846 but Army records would make his birth as June 1846

In June 1864 he received a Conditional Discharge from the Royal North Down Rifle Regiment of Militia in order to enlist in the army. In the Militia he was No.2332 Private James Patterson.
He enlisted at Belfast in the 96th Regiment of Foot for a period of ten years in July 1864. Private No787 he was 18 years and 1 month
