The 1908 Lincoln plat shows no Pattat's in Lincoln Twp., only a C. Pattat in
Grant Twp. He lived very close to the Sweet's Cemetery however; the cemetery
was 1 mile N, 1 mile W and 1/2 mile N of C. Pattat's residence. The legal
subdivision for Sweet's Cemetery was the W 1/2 of the SW 1/4 of Section 32 in
Lincoln Twp.; in 1908 C. Pattat's residence was located in the NW 1/4 of Section
9, Grant Twp.
In the 1895 census, Constant and Rosa are living in Grant Twp. with their
children Louisa and Louis, ages 32, 28, 4 and 3 respectively. Constant was born
in New York, Rosa in Des Moines, and the children in Buena Vista Co. It's a
little confusing whether Rosa was born in the city or county of Des Moines; the
enumerator was supposed to list the county of birth (if in Iowa), but I
noticed on the same page he listed someone's birthplace as Sioux City, so I'm not
sure what he meant--you probably know where she was born, though.
