Hi Marsha, Apologies for not responding sooner but I only just noticed this thread.
I have researched both the Knox family of Glentimon and the Patton family of Seein extensively for two Americans who will be "cousins" of yours and I am sure they will be happy to share when I contact them. Both visited me, Margaret Kuska in 2015 and Patton Adams earlier this summer. If you check out my West Ulster Genealogy Facebook page, you will see reports of both research projects plus the visits of Margaret and Patton. On the Knox family especially I have a very large collection of data. Walter Knox, who had at least 8 siblings, was the son of a James Knox, 1772-1852, who married Martha Wilson, grandson of Walter Knox, who married Margaret McCrea, great grandson of Robert Knox, born c1710. This family has a huge connection around Sion Mills; they married into the Woods family, who now own the land. Walter had at least two children, James Patton Knox, who married Minnie Young and John Knox, who married Rose Cunningham, both brothers living in Iowa at the time. I have less on the Pattons because I never tied these Pattons into the Pattons I was researching. However, Walter's father, James Patton, 1795-1870, held Plot 8 in Seein, of circa 33 acres, where he lived along with an Eliza Patton, possibly his mother. Please feel free to contact me direct.
