WillIn Margaret MOTE's will dated 14 January 1803 in Newberry County, South Carolina, Rachel PATTY was named as an heir; Margaret MOTE PATTY left a will on 14 Jan 1803 in Newberry County, South Carolina, leaving all her land to son David and the remander split amoung the other children.1
Death*She died in 1828; Others of her family were buried on the south side where she lies: her daughter Kezia Pearson, who died of typhoid fever in September, 1826, and Ruth (Pearson) Jones. She first married John Pearson, brother to Robert, who died not many years after coming to this country, and left her to struggle along with several small children. After living a widow some twenty years, she was married to Wallace Jones, then a widower. Being never robust in health, she died early summer of 1854 in the seventy-third year of her age. The simple initials R. J. is on her tombstone. On the next stone, we read W. J., who died about three months afterwards; stands for Wallace Jones, her second husband. He also came from South Carolina, was once an officer in the militia and also in civil service -- was considered then in the South a pretty fearless, rough man. But after he and his wife and their children come to Ohio they become convinced of Friends' principles and joined the church and were useful in it in their day. His first wife was Rachel Patty, sister to the Patty brothers, who lived here (vis James, David and Charles). She died in the spring of 1828 in the fifty-fifth 1828 of her age, but no stone marks her grave. Seven children were born to them, five sons and two daughters.2
