The Pattyn History

Pattyn Arezona

 

By Jim Pattyn, Phoenix, AZ, United States

 

First Generation as we know it!

Furtherst back we have been able to go on the Pattyn Family is Joseph Pattyn and his wife Marj Doom. Herman DeClerk was able to find this information from the “Flemish Association for Genealogy”. They would have been born in Belgium in the late 1600’s because their son Petrus Jacobus Pattyn was born in 1703 in Kortemark, West Flanders, Belgium. There may have been more children but I currently do not have any evidence or clues to them yet.

Second Generation

Petrus Jacobus Pattyn, as I said was born in 1703 in Kortemark, West Flanders, Belgium. Petrus married Anna Maria D’Haene on 1 July 1736, in Kortemark, West Flanders, Belgium. Anna was the daughter of daughter of Joannes Baptista D’Haene and Maria Cloet. Petrus was 33 when he married Anna. Anna was born on 2 March 1719 or 1720. That would make Anna about 17 years old at the time of marriage. This leads me to believe that he may have been married before Anna.

Six (6) years had passed and a child was born. Bernard Petrus Jozef Pattyn was born on 15 Oct 1742 in Kortemark, West Flanders, Belgium. Petrus was 39 years old and Anna was about 23 years old. Because of the 6 year gap between their marriage and the birth of Bernard, this leads me to believe there could have been other children before Bernard but I have no evidence of this suspicion.

Another six (6) years had past and Anna Maria Pattyn was born on 31 March 1748 in Kortemark, West Flanders, Belgium. Petrus was 45 when Anna was born. This makes me believe there are other children between the time Bernardus and Anna’s birth. At this point in time Anna D’Haene would have been about 29 years old.

We do not know when Anna D’Haene died but we believe she died in or around Kortemark or Werken, West Flanders, Belgium. Petrus died at the age of 73. According to the information that Herman found at the Flemish Association for Genealogy, he died in 1776 in Werken, West Flanders, Belgium. This was the year that America claimed Independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

Third Generation

Bernard Petrus Jozef Pattyn married Anna Theresia Van de Poele on 3 January 1770 in Werken, Belgium. Anna Theresia was the daughter of Jaonnes Jacob Van de Poele and Anna Maria Theresia Ingelbrecht. She was born 13 January 1753 in Werken, Belgium. Bernard died on 8 June 1798 in Schore, West Flanders, Belgium when he was 56 years old. Anna Theresia died in 28 February 1823 in Leke, West Flanders, Belgium. She was 70 years old at the time of her death.

Bernard and Anna had at least one child. Carolus Pattyn was born in 1776. This was the same year that his grandfather passed away. Since Carolus was born 6 years after the marriage of his parents, I believe there may have been more children before his birth. Carolus died on 29 December 1846 at the age of 70.

Anna Maria Pattyn married Petrus Josephus DeBruyne, who is assumed to have been born and died in West Flanders, Belgium. These two were married on 6 October 1772, in Werken, West Flanders, Belgium. Petrus and Anna had at least one child. Joannes Baptist DeBruyne was born on 27 Dec 1773. He died on 10 Mar 1818 at the age of 45. Since Joannes was born so quickly after the marriage I doubt there was a previous birth. Though there could have been other children born after him.

Fourth Generation

Carolus Pattyn “Karel” was born in 1776 in Werken, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 29 December 1846 in West Flanders, Belgium. Karel married Victoria Constantinia D’Hulster. Victoria Constantinia was the daughter of Phillipe D’Hulster and Isabella Theresia Bocky. She was born in 1776 or 1779 in Leke, West Flanders, Belgium. She died on 29 July 1861 in Leke, West Flanders, Belgium. Unfortunately, I do not know when they were married but they had at least one child. Henricus Jozef Pattyn was born on 19 April 1814.

Carolus’s cousin Joannes Baptist DEBRUYNE was born on 27 December 1773 in Werken, West Flanders, Belgium. Joannes married Victoria Soete on 3 November 1797. He was 24 when he married Victoria. I do not have a birth date on Victoria so I do not know her age. I am assuming she was born in West Flanders, Belgium. They were married in Handzame, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 10 Mar 1818 in Koekelare, West Flanders, Belgium when he was only 45 years old. I do not have a date of death or location of death for Victoria.

Fifth Generation

Marinus Eduard DeBruyne was born 13 October 1800 Handzame, West Flanders, Belgium. He married Isabella Ampe on 17 September 1825 in Zande, Belgium. Marinus was almost 25 years old. They had at least one child, Clemens DeBruyne, born on 8 November 1829 in Koekelare, West Flanders, Belgium.

Marinus’ second cousin, Henricus Jozef Pattyn was born on 19 April 1814 in Leke, West Flanders, Belgium married Anna Theresia Pieters who was born in 1824 in Belgium. Their child, Edward Bernard Pattyn was born on 5 March 1856. Anna was 32 years old at the time of his birth. Henri was 42 when Edward was born so this leads me to believe he had other children prior to Edward and possibly even another wife prior to Anna Pieters since she is 10 years younger than Henri. Henri died on 22 May 1862 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium, at the age of 48. We have no records of when Anna died but it is also very possible that she remarried after his death. Henri was a school teacher.

Sixth Generation

Clemens DeBruyne was born on 8 November 1829 in Koekelare, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 3 February 1902 in Vladslo, West Flanders, Belgium. Clemens married Melania GAT on 22 November 1866 in Vladslo, West Flanders, Belgium. Melania was born in 1837 in West Flanders, Belgium. She died in West Flanders, Belgium. Clemens and Melania had at least 4 children. We have very little information on their births, marriages, and deaths.

1) Désiré was born on 17 March 1868 and he died on 13 February 1939.
2) Charles, born in West Flanders, Belgium. He died in West Flanders, Belgium.
3) Emiel was born in West Flanders, Belgium. He died in West Flanders, Belgium. Emiel married Unknown Everaert.
4) Ludovica died at an unknown age.
Clemens’ third cousin, Edward Bernard PATTYN was born on 5 March 1856 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 7 October 1927 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. He married Maria Ludovica (Marie Louise) Logghe. Her parents were Jean August Logghe and Blondina Laebens. Edward and Marie were married on 19 January 1891. She was born on 27 February 1865 in Aartrycke West Flanders, Belgium. She died 31 March 1935 in Detroit, Michigan. They had eight children who reached adulthood. Three others died as small children. When the children were very young, Edward could no longer go out to work due to a severe case of asthma. Marie Louise spent several sleepless nights worrying about their future and one morning, very early; she got dressed and walked all the way to her parent’s home in the next town so as to be there before they had to start work. She had a plan and wanted to discuss it with them. She wanted to open a general store in the front room of their house. They advised her to talk it over with her parish priest. It was decided that this was a workable plan and they went ahead. Since Marie Louise had no formal schooling, the priest was to help with the necessary account keeping (which was probably very simple since it was a very small business venture) until Coralie, the eldest child, was able to take over that duty. Later, they added a bakery. At first, Marie Louise did all the baking during the nights preceding Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. In later years, the boys as they grew old enough took on the baking chores. Their future families also enjoyed the fruits of their baking talents. The fathers in the Pattyn families baked many a loaf of whole wheat and raisin bread. The six oldest children went to the United States at various stages of their adult lives and the parents and the two youngest girls followed to America in 1927. Edward died shortly after arriving in Detroit. He arrived in July 1927 through Canada we believe. He got sick on the ship and later died on 7 October 1927 and Marie Louise died on 31 March 1935, in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. Edward and Maria arrive in Canada from Europe on or about 31 Jul 1927. Supposedly they came on a different ship that their two daughters and grandson. Leontine (23), Leonie (18), and Basil (6) arrived in Quebec City aboard the Ausonia on July 31, 1927. Edward and Maria are buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. They are in Section 53, Row 11, Plot 236. This grave stone used to stand upright but they changed this section into a non-monument section and laid it flat. It is almost illegible. I have begun a tradition of going to these gravesite the day after the Pattyn Family Reunion, which is currently held every even year at the Memorial Park, Saint Clair Shores, Michigan sometime during the summer.

The first year I started doing this was in the year 2000. My parents came with me to show me the locations. Since then I started bringing shovels and buckets and brushes to clean the headstones with plain water and to raise them up out of the ground. There are so many of them that were sunk so far below the grass that they were difficult to find. They just are not taking very good care of these gravesites.

Edward and Marie had the following children who were all born in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. All but the youngest died in the Detroit area of Wayne County, Michigan.

1) Coralie was born on 13 Jun 1891. She died on 27 May 1985.
2) Evarist Florimond was born on 27 Sep 1892. He died on 30 Apr 1961.
3) Louis was born on 25 Feb 1894. He died on 29 Sep 1966.
4) Achiel was born on 23 Oct 1895. He died on 15 Sep 1962.
5) August was born on 21 Aug 1898. He died on 14 Aug 1961.
6) Sidonie was born on 22 Dec 1899. She died on 8 May 1976.
7) Leontine was born on 24 May 1904. She died on 20 Jun 1963.
8) Leonie was born on 19 Jun 1909. She died on 1 Jul 1985.
9) Camiel was born in 1907 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. He died in 1913 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium.

Seventh Generation

Coralie Pattyn was born on 13 June 1891 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. She died on 27 May 1985 in Howell Township, Livingston County, Michigan. Coralie Pattyn married Edward Storme, a carpenter, on 16 April 1911. He was born on 11 January 1890 in Roxem, West Flanders, Belgium and died on June 7, 1957 in Cottage Hospital in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan.

Coralie and Edward came to America two days after their marriage in 1911. They came to Detroit because Coralie’s uncle (Marie Louise’s youngest brother, Desire Logghe) was already here. Coralie’s younger brother Achiel, who was 16 years old at the time, came with them. It must have been a sudden decision because they had brought just two of everything in eating utensils, plates, forks, spoons, etc. When they arrived, they had to take turns eating until they were settled and knew enough English to go out and buy more. Coralie liked America immediately and has never been sorry she came, but Edward and Achiel were home-sick for awhile. Coralie and Edward had three children who reached adulthood and three sons who died in infancy. Coralie resided at St. Joseph’s Home, 4800 Cadieux, Detroit, Michigan 48224. Coralie and Edward Storme are buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Detroit, Michigan, Section L, Plot 10.

It appears that Coralie, Edward and Marie went back to Belgium for a visit in 1921. There is an Ellis Island record of them on the Ship Aquitania from South Hampton, Southamptonshire, England. Coralie was 29 years old and the arrival date was April 30, 1921. Their place of residence was Lorne Point, Michigan. They may have departed from New York on 6 December 1920 to visit Belgium and then left Southhampton, England to return to America on 23 April 1921. According to the register at Ellis Island, Edward, Coralie & Marie arrived in New York on the S.S. Aquitania in 1921 from a visit to Belgium.

Evarist Florimond Pattyn was born on 27 September 1892 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 30 April 1961 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.

Evarist immigrated on 26 May 1920 on the ship S.S. Lapland, from Antwerp to Southampton to New York. He emigrated on 5 June 1920 from New York, New York. There is also a record of Evarist arriving on the ship Finland from Antwerp on June 14, 1920 as a married man age 27. There is also a record of him arriving on May 31 or June 1, 1920 on the ship Kroonland from Antwerp, Belgium. I believe there may have been some sorts of delays or ship changes that caused them to appear on these other ships but there names are scratched off of the two rosters.

At that time in Belgium, the eldest son of every family had to spend four years in the army. Evarist had completed three years in the cavalry when WWI began in 1914. He then spent four more years as a soldier until Armistice was declared in 1918. He married Marie Louise Vandewalle on March 25, 1920. She was born on 26 November 1891 in Aartrycke, West Flanders, Belgium and was the daughter of Vincent Vandewalle and Louisa Monton.

They came to Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan right after their marriage and lived in a house owned by his sister Coralie, for the first year. He worked originally as a plasterer’s laborer and during WWII, he worked at Sherwood Brass and later at Motor Products Company, from which he retired in 1957. He died on 30 April 1961 and Marie died on 6 July 1960. They had three children and lived at 4651 Lakeview, Detroit. Evarist was 27 or 28 when he left Belgium. Evarist and Marie are buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan in Section O, Plot 160.

Marie was about 28 when she left Belgium. She arrived on the Lapland from Antwerp on June 5, 1920. There is also record of her arriving on May 31 or June 1,1920 on the Kroonland from Antwerp. There is also a record of her arriving on May 31 or June 14, 1920 on the Finland from Antwerp. As I stated with her husbands information, I believe there may have been some sorts of delays or ship changes that caused them to appear on these other ships but there names are scratched off of the two rosters.
Louis Pattyn was born on 25 February 1894 in Bekegem, West Flanders, Belgium. He died on 29 September 1966 in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. The cause of death was Heart attack in his sleep. Louis resided in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. Louis came to America with his two brothers. They joined their oldest sister and another brother who were already here.

Louis immigrated to the USA on 15 April 1914 at the age of 20. He arrived on the ship Olympic. Port of Departure was Southampton, Southamptonshire, England. He was single at the time.

Louis went back to Belgium for a visit in 1920. He returned as a US Citizen, (USA – Bibb County Court, Mason, GA.). Place of residence Detroit, Michigan. He arrived on April 22, 1920 as a 25 year old married man. He arrived on the ship Mauritania. Port of Departure was South Hampton, Southamptonshire, England. His wife Maria arrived with him. Maria arrived as a US Citizen by marriage. Place of residence was Detroit, Michigan. She arrived on April 22, 1920 at the age of 22. The ship was the Mauritania from Southampton, Southamptonshire, England.

Louis Pattyn married Maria Magdalena Jonckheere on March 11, 1920. They came to Detroit right after their marriage in 1920. He and two (2) of his brothers were all married in the same month and year. They lived within blocks of each other. Maria was the daughter of Theodore and Eugenie Jonckheere and was born on 30 October1898. They had one son, Morris, and lived at 4465 Maryland Avenue in Detroit at the time of his death on 29 September 1966. He died from a heart attack. Maria lived in their home, which he built, until 1973. Maria then moved to Frankfort, Benzie County, Michigan with her son and his family where she died on 16 March 1976 at Paul Oliver Hospital, Frankfort, Benzie County, Michigan, just 6 weeks after her 6th great grandson was born. Marie died of cancer and diabetes complications.

Louis had worked for the Goebel Brewery as a carpenter until he retired. He was a fine woodworker by avocation. He made several lovely jewelry boxes, lamp bases, candle sticks, tables, etc & inlaid wood items, which he gave to many of his relatives. Louis and Maria also had very ‘green’ thumbs. Their entire backyard looked like a greenhouse nursery. They grew many boxwood shrubs and bushes and gave them to the family and friends. He grew leeks in his basement since they needed cool places to grow. He grew his own vegetable and berry garden.

Louis Pattyn and Marie Jonckheere are my grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa are buried at Resurrection Cemetery; 18201 Clinton River Road; Mount
Clemens, MI (586) 463-4527. Graves 1 & 2 Lot 86 Section 14.

My sister Kathy wrote these words about Louis Pattyn:
“June 3, 2001 – Grandpa was a very quiet man. He never really had a lot to
say. He would sit in his favorite chair and smoke his pipe, or he would be out in the back yard tending his plants and shrubs. We (the grandkids) used to play tag type games on the strips of wood that he laid down in the dirt throughout his garden. Sometimes we would get in trouble for it. He also could be found down in his workshop making all kinds of wood items, such as lamps, tables, jewelry boxes, and candlesticks or little trinket boxes. He was very kind and patient and loved to show us what he was doing all the time. A scent is a very powerful trigger for memory. Every time I smell a cherry tobacco pipe, I instantly think of him. We loved our grandpa.”

My cousin Margaret wrote these words about Louis Pattyn:
“June 9, 2001 – Louis Pattyn was my god father and I have several items which remind me of him every time I look at them. He made me(as well as all the other girls of my generation) a lovely inlaid wood jewelry box. I also have a pair of eight inch high wood candlesticks which he and your grandmother brought me when they visited me after I was hospitalized due to an automobile accident back in 1965. He was a good gardener and I have several boxwood shrubs which come from cuttings from his plants. Although he was a very quiet man not given to voicing his feelings much, he was my most ardent supporter of the early family reunions. He definitely liked the family to stay united.”

While talking to my father in 2005 about his father, he said that Louis used to make his own beer and wine. He would also make his own gadgets to make his work easier. He was quite the inventor around the house.

My sister Kathy wrote these words about Maria:
“June 3, 2001. Our grandma was the best. She had just enough kindness, patience, love and discipline, and candy too! She was our babysitter most of the time. She would tell us scary stories and play games. She would tell us a story about a bear that was coming to get us if we weren’t good. We would climb on the couch and cover up with a blanket over our heads. Then she would make a groaning bear noise and we were so sure the bear was in the house. We would start to scream and she’d pull the blanket off of us and laugh with us. We would play hide and seek with her and she would chase us around the yard. She liked to play card games with us, like Go Fish, 7-Up, War or Crazy Eights. She would always bring a box of fudge sickles or ice cream bars. We loved them. There was a cupboard in her kitchen where she would keep all of the “poggie-bait” (candy). When we were young, we would have dinner almost every Sunday with them at their house. I remember having rabbit and mashed potatoes, corn, cooked shredded red cabbage, and homemade applesauce. Mom always thought there was a little too much salt. But we loved it. She would always make us feel very special and would give us Faygo Red pop in her fancy wine glasses. It was such a treat. We all want to inherit those little glasses someday. We always thought she had such a cool Christmas tree because she had a little white picket fence around the tree and she had so many really cool lights that looked like they were filled with fluid and shot out like lit candles. And she had some huge colored bulbs that you could see your face in. Her favorite show was “Let’s Make a Deal” with Monte Hall, and “The Price is Right” with Bob Barker. She also liked to watch some soap opera but I can’t remember which one. Both sets of our grandparents were very special to all of us. But as our family grew, it was a little more difficult to go to their houses very often. Another specialty was her home-made bread with raisins that she made all the time. It was so good. She always had a bowl of dough rising and it smelled so good! Another treat was the pastries from a nearby bakery – I loved those Napoleons with custard.
Nobody makes them like that anymore. Yummy! She used to make doilies, scarves, mittens & slippers for us kids. She also made those braided rugs that wear like iron. She had many talents. She spoke Flemish with my dad and taught us a few words. We all miss our grandma very much. As I reflect on all the memories I have of her, I wonder now, about her family that she left back in Belgium so long ago, if she was close with them, and who she kept in touch with besides family. I don’t remember her talking about them, and I really guess that I didn’t think about them. I never met any of them that I can remember. I think Martha came here once when I was about 2. Kids don’t know to ask those questions, and we get so busy with our own families when we are young that time passes too quickly. Maybe that’s why I tell my kids stories that sometimes they don’t want to hear or are tired of hearing. Someday they may want to know all this stuff.”

I wrote my memories of my grandmother:
“June 3, 2001 I remember going to grandma’s house when I was little and she would make her famous and very delicious pancakes that are more like crepes. She was always baking. I remember the red pop too. That was always a given when you went over to see her. I remember in her archway of her kitchen she had this little windmill thing that was very difficult for me to blow upward to spin like all the other kids, so someone would usually pick me up so I could do it too. I remember spending Christmas mornings at her house. I seem to recall a train set or something like it. I was very glad she went with us to Frankfort. She was a very special person in my life. I enjoyed the time I spent with her. She always had time for her grandchildren. I was about 10 or 11 when grandma died in 1976. Back then, children were not allowed to go into a patents room even if they were on their death bed. I was always very upset about not seeing grandma one more time before she died. My family said that you probably were better off to remember her as she was and not with all the tubes and wires. She did not even recognize my father at the very end.”

She entered the convent for a while in Belgium but this life was evidently not for her, for she left the convent in 1921 and married Charles Coeman. He was born December 9, 1897 in Aartrycke, West Vlaandars, Belgium, son of Francis and Virginia Coeman. They had one son born in Belgium who stayed with his maternal grandparents while they went to America. The son came to America with his grandparents about five years later.
