My dad is my hero. My mom is my heroine. My dad was the Youngest Lt. in the Ohio State Highway Patrol. I value law enforcement, including all of our first responders. I understand what risks they undertake on a daily basis. You all have my full and unwavering support.
My ancestors came from Ireland. There were five Patton brothers who emigrated to America. Most settled in Ohio and Indiana. The most famous of the brothers settled in California and was the forebearer of General George S. Patton, Jr. Here is the original naturalization certificate for my forebearer Samuel Patton. In the 1830's naturalization was done by the individual States.
