Barbara McMartin Patterson?
Hello, not sure you are still active, but a question has come up. There are no sources for the Barbara McMartin article, so hard to verify the issue. Someone claims she married the managing editor of the new York Daily News, James Joseph Patterson (1923–1992). But I cannot find this mentioned anywhere, and the New York Times and Florida obituaries claim he was married to a Dorothy Clarke. So I wonder if there was someone else with that name? Thanks.
