Patton family.

Hide Profile

Benjamin D. Wilson, second Mayor of Los Angeles, and his second wife, Margaret S. Hereford, had one son and three daughters, one of whom married James DeBarth Shorb (1842-1896) and another, Ruth, who married George Smith Patton (1856-1927) (one-time District Attorney of Los Angeles and the first Mayor of San Marino) on December 10, 1884. Patton and his wife sired two children, George Smith Patton, Jr. (1885-1945) or "Georgie" and Anne Wilson Patton (1887-1971) or "Nita." Patton and his family resided at Lake Vineyard, originally built by Benjamin Wilson on 128 acres in the heart of present-day San Marino. This house, Lake Vineyard I, was torn down in 1910 to make way for a larger house, Lake Vineyard II, which was the site of planning sessions for the incorporation of present-day San Marino. Ann Wilson, Ruth Wilson Patton's sister, lived with the Patton family at Lake Vineyard and may have been the photographer for the images in the first four boxes of the collection, and was the photographer and creator of the photograph album in Box 5.
