Company E
Pascal Patton - Corporal   
Enlisted June 3, 1861 in the 15th (Josey's) Arkansas Infantry Regiment. According to family files he was found by his son James Northan on a battlefield (don't know which one) and was carried home where he died on April 3, 1862 from measles. The family lived around Springdale/Fayetteville, Arkansas area. So I'm suspecting it was the Battle of Pea Ridge. He is buried at Friendship Cemetery, Springdale, Washington County, Arkansas next to his brother Isaac C. Patton. Pascal was my Great Great Grandfather.
