"URIAH PATTON was born in Montgomery County, Ohio, August 1, 1823, and is one of the ten children born to THOMAS and MARY (HORINE) PATTON, natives of Maryland, and born respectively January 17, 1789, and March 4, 1791. The parents settled in Montgomery County in 1816, and thence to Carroll County, Indiana, in 1835, where the father died in 1855, aged sixty-six, and the mother in in 1838, aged forty-seven. URIAH PATTON was reared as a farmer in Carroll County, and there attended the pioneer school at intervals until twenty-one, when he entered 120 acres of his present farm in this township. He was married, January 3, 1847, to MISS SUSAN, daughter of JOHN and CATHERINE (HANNAWALT) NEARHOOF, and born in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, September 25, 1825. To this union were born nine children, six now living - ISAAC, JERUSHA, LOVINA, PERRY, LEVI and MARGARET A. Those deceased are WILLIAM (aged twenty-three), MONROE (aged thirteen months), and an infant unnamed. MR. PATTON is the owner of a farm of 280 acres, under a good state of cultivation. He lost his dwelling by fire April 18, 1880, and on the 23rd of June following moved into his present house, which cost him $1,200. MR. and MRS. PATTON joined the church of God in 1850, and in the spring of 1855 MR. PATTON was chosen minister, and has since been preaching regularly - the first few years riding a circuit of fifty miles - and has never received a dollar for his services. He is a Republican, and has filled the office of Township Trustee."
