He is buried in the Hankins family Cemetery in Baptist Valley.

Patton J. Brown’s father Thomas Brown , lived on top of Mountain Fork Ridge (later called Brown’s Ridge) , near Jewell Ridge, large land speculator, bought and sold many lands, large lands, with son James P. Brown bought a large Dismal Creek tract of 1000 acres from Benjamin H. Warden, among many numerous other land tracts. ~ Married Rachel McIntosh. They had six known children and possibly one other unknown. The known children are William Bird, John M., James P., Mary Lou, Elizabeth “Betsey”, Patton J.

Thomas Brown’s youngest son Patton J. Brown was a thrifty and stern land speculator and business man.
After the civil war at the beginnings of the Town Richland’s and after the industrial depression of 1893 Patton Brown, financially secure, bought back surrendered property lots and joined in revitalizing the town.
Patton was also trustee and land provider for the first High School of Richland’s.
Another of the purchased Properties was the Clinch Valley Coal and Iron Company stone building on Front Street and Suffolk Avenue which was first built to house the Bank in 1891.
As new owner George M. Brown, (adopted?) son of Patton J. Brown commenced business in the office of Bank President of the newly formed Richland’s National Bank on May 16, 1916.
George’s adherence to sound banking principles enabled the Bank to remain in business through the stock crash of 1929, yet his generosity proceeded him... and “he gave freely of his personal funds to help those unfortunate individuals....his acquaintenances were not restricted to any one class, yet included persons from varied circumstances, .. It is doubted if any man has had a greater reputation of Christian Living....”

Patton J. Brown was originally buried in cemetery near at 'Big Lick' where the Clinch Valley Hospital in Richland’s off RT 460 now stands. He was in a crypt with a glass faced iron coffin, where family could view his face and body at family reunions.
Family tradition has it when the time came to remove the cemetery that as the coffin was moved Patton Brown’s body instantly turned to dust.

Patton and Mary where removed to Hankins Cemetery near his Blockhouse homestead.
Where a large Granite Marker inscribed with “Pioneer” was Placed.

A descendant of his had the bodies removed from Hankins Cemetery in the 1970’s
Patton and Mary are now in their final resting place in a mausoleum in Greenhill Memory Garden Cemetery in Claypool Hill.

(Sampson) Simpson Ferguson - Private   
The 16 VA CAV was organized as a regiment in January of 1863 when Ferguson's Battalion and
Caldwell's Battalion combined under Ferguson's leadership. Until then, companies under Ferguson were known as Ferguson's Battalion or, sometimes, the Guyandotte Battalion. Most of the men who enlisted in 1862 enlisted into Ferguson's Battalion, made up of six or seven companies. The 16 VA CAV had a total of 10 companies, with Wayne Countians being mostly in E, G, H, and K.

There were at least 10 Fergusons in the regiment and all related in some way.
