“Tuscarora Jack” defended the colonies and started
a building tradition for the Patterson family that continues
more than 285 years later.
Charlotte Barnwell Brown, a descendant of “Tuscarora Jack”, married Joseph Allen Patterson, Jr., at the time, the youngest graduate in the history of Clemson. In the early 1900’s, he founded J. Allen Patterson Construction Company. The accomplishments of his company include lying the first underwater power cable to Parris Island and installing the first heating and air conditioning system used in Beaufort County.
Joseph Allen “Skeet” Patterson, III joined his father’s business in the 1950’s. Skeet and Mary Patterson had five children. Three of those children, Allen, Steve and Merritt,
are builders in Beaufort.
