    >was Madeline Alene Meeks
    >(the daughter of Elmer Augustus Meeks and Helen Augusta Huey). Madeline was born in Yates, New York, and had some deep lines in America. Elmer was the son of Joseph Decatur Meeks and Lowvisa Mehitabel Williams. Helen was the daughter of Robert Eli Huey, whose father was from Northern Ireland, and Mary A. Gee, whose mother was Irish.

    So, Patrick is (at least) 75% German.

    There is some distant/remote Dutch and French in his paternal grandmother lines.
