Notes for Jurdon PATTERSON

Biographical Sketch (1909):660, v. 2, p. 732-733. "In his boyhood days Jurdon Patterson attended the district schools during the winter season and in the summer time assisted his father in his labors on the farm. He remained at home, engaging daily in agricultural pursuits, until he attained the age of twenty-eight years and about that time, his father retiring from active life, he rented the homestead which he cultivated for a period of ten years, during which time he was especially successful and succeeded in accumulating the means with which to purchase a farm for himself. He bought seventy acres of land in Burlington Township, which he cultivated and upon which he lived until the year 1870, when he removed to the farm which he now has under cultivation. He has altogether two hundred and thirteen acres of excellent land. He is among the enterprising and progressive farmers of the county and through careful management and hard work has become a wealthy and prosperous husbandman and has also won the respect of the entire community.

In the year 1855 Mr. Patterson wedded Miss Ellen Folley, a native of the state of Virginia. To this union was born one daughter. His wife passed away in the year 1856 and Mr. Patterson, in 1861, was united in marriage with Mary A. Warner, of this county. They had two children, one of whom died in infancy. The other, Mary E., is the wife of L. L. Edman, who resides in Burlington Township. Mrs. Patterson departed this life in 1863 and Mr. Patterson afterward wedded Eliza Stevens, who died January 20, 1867. Mr. Patterson next married Mrs. Amy Keekley, with whom he is now living. Mr. Patterson gives his political support to the democratic party in the principles of which he is a firm believer. He is a man of exceptional executive and administrative ability, as well as of keen business judgment, and has been called upon to serve the county in several responsible positions such as school director, county trustee and justice of the peace three terms. He has spent a long and useful life, being how in his eighty-second year, all of which time he has devoted to agricultural interests, and while he does not engage as actively in farming pursuits as in former days his health and vigor still permits him to attend to many farm duties although he prefers now to enjoy somewhat of the leisure and comfort with which his hard and earnest toil has generously rewarded him."
