WILLIAM B. PATTON was an early settler of Mobile County, Alabama. He was on a list of taxable property for Mobile County in 1817 and his name was on a petition of residents living on the Mobile River to Congress. The petition was made to stop the extension of Mississippi Territory into the
Alabama Territory because it would “retard the admission of the Alabama territory into the union as an independent state and will considerable augment the burdens of government, when it is admitted.
