The original site on Patton-family.net contained mostly scans of my mother’s photographs, beginning in 1940 and running through the 80s. I had posted a few pictures from the early 2Ks that were taken at my dad’s birthday barbecues. But, as many of you know, that site was destroyed as were the back ups of it. Freak accident. Long story. I kept the domain name so I can replace the site and add to it as time goes on. This is my first rebuilding of Patton-family.net. Since the scans take so much time and emotion, I am beginning the rebuild of this site with the digital photos my family has accumulated over time, beginning in 2000 and running through today.
This site contains photographs from various photographers. All the copyrights for each photo belong specifically to the photographer who took them or to their heirs beginning with the year they are listed in. If I post anyone’s pictures who don’t want them used, please contact me and let me know & I’ll remove them. Photos of strangers on here (as in the 6th Street photos), you were in public. Get over it. Photographers contributing to this site are: Jewell Patton, Carol Patton, Laurie Patton, Gene Curylo, Branden Roark, Haylan Teel, Eric Teel, Cameron Roark, Jessica Teseny, Allen Herman, Joanne Jones Herman, Maggie Teseny, Mary Congleton.

“I’m saying this is the South. We’re proud of our crazy people. We don’t hide them up in the attic. We bring ‘em right down to the living room and show ‘em off. See, Phyllis, no one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family. They just ask what side they’re on.”Julia Sugarbaker
