Mrs. Jean Templeton Patton, widow of James Patton, who died here twenty-two years ago, is dead at her home at 241 Clay Street. She passed away at 8 o’clock Sunday night of a complication of diseases resulting from the frailties of advanced age. She was 87 years old.
Mrs. Patton is survived by four children, namely, Mrs. John Koblegard, of 217 East Main Street; Thomas Patton of 626 West Pike Street, Mrs. Ella White, who lived with her mother; and John Patton of Chicago. Many friends are made sorrowful over Mrs. Patton’s death as she was an estimable woman and was held in the highest esteem.
Mrs. Patton was a daughter of James Rankin and was born in Scotland. She married James Patton in that country and they came from Chicago to Wilsonburg in 1846 and a few months later moved to Clarksburg.
John Patton, of Chicago, is expected to arrive here this afternoon for the funeral, which will be held at her home at 10 o’clock Wednesday morning. Interment will be at the Odd Fellows’ Cemetery.
Mrs. Patton was a member of the Presbyterian Church from early childhood and a woman highly esteemed by all the many who knew her.
