John Erwin was the first son and second child born to Mary C. Chamberlain and George Adam Patterson of Weatherly Borough, Carbon County, PA. John married Maria Catherine or “Marie” as she was known, oldest child of Jennie Toleatha Ressler and Charles Oscar Fetterman, Centralia, PA, on February 1, 1916.

Their oldest daughter, Mary Jane, worked as a domestic throughout her life. Except for a very short period of time, she lived with her mother for her entire life. After Marie's death, Mary Jane remained in the home and became the family matriarch. Until her death in 1999, it was the gathering place for all the family members. Mary Jane was beloved by all who knew her.
