From Thursday's Daily
News has been received in this city

Mo., where he had been living for the past four years, going there from Independence, Mo.
For several years he had been in declining health and was quite feeble. The immediate

He was born about fifteen miles from Richmond, Va., March 29, 1828 and during the Civil
war, he served with the Confederacy, being a member of Gen. Price's army, and during
the war, he carried for some time his most highly prized heirloom, it being an old army

army during the revolution. He is survived by his daughter, Miss Kate PATTERSON. He was a
member of the Masonic fraternity, being the oldest continuous Mason in Missouri.
Mr. Patterson came to this city at the close of the war and engaged in business, being
associated with John H. TOMILN [sic] in grain business, with W.M. HICKLIN in groceries,
