I have an original carte de visite photograph of “C. V. Patten”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken in about 1880, in Logansport (Cass Co.) IN, and Mr. Patten looks to be about age 45.
I found Charles Patten in the 1880 census for Logansport, and he was age 42, born OH (abt 1838), worked in a RR yard and his wife Ellen was age 37.A Charles Patten matching the 1838 date of birth was age 64 when he died in May 1912 in Shelbyville (Shelby Co.) IN.
