He was a son of George and Mary (Wayne) King, natives of England, who came to America and settled in Pennsylvania in a very early day. The Father died in Huntingdon County of that state, between 1833 and 1837. His wife, a daughter of John Wayne, bore him ten children, as follows: William, John, George, Patrick, Elizabeth, James, Hugh, Sallie, Charles and _______, came to Muskingum County, Ohio and all died in this county except William, who passed away from life in Licking County. The mother of these children was called to her long home in Muskingum County in 1850. Patrick King was married in 1813 to Miss Mary McLerry, who was born in Pennsylvania in 1795, and their union was, in time, blessed in the birth of nine children in Pennsylvania, and after settling in Muskigum County two more children were added: George, Thomas, Hugh, James, Sarah A., William, Samuel, John, Mary, Hannah and Elizabeth. In 1832 Patrick King settled with his family on a farm in Perry Township, but one year later located in Madison Township, where he followed the calling of a blacksmith, in connection with farming, for the rest of his life. He was a man of advanced views and believed that what was worth doing at all, was worth doing well, and his attributes of industry, perseverance and intelligence were put to a practical use, and achieved the desired result. All measures of morality, education, temperance and others of a like nature found him a strong advocate, and a soldier in the War of 1812, and in an early day held a number of offices in Muskigum County. After the death of his first wife he was united in marriage to Miss Mariah Wiatt, who survives him and makes her home with her step-son William King, in Madison Township.
