Family Histories of Coleman County, Texas

Patton Family

Our grandfather, George Patton, came to Coleman around 1905, was a friend of the Ransbergers, and finally settled just south of Fisk.  His sons also farmed in the area for a long time.  His daughters worked toward a teachers’ certificate and both taught in rural schools.  Miss Belle Patton, the eldest, was a 3rd grade teacher in South Ward for many years.  I have a lot of pictures relating to her house and her students.  My mother, Lester, walked to the old Brown Ranch school to get her education and then took a room with Miss Belle Patton in Coleman to go to Coleman High School and graduate as valedictorian in 1914.
