Obituary of W. S. PATRICK

Last Saturday evening, Mr. W. S. Patrick, a well known and highly respected citizen of this county died at his residence southeast of the city, after an illness of a few weeks, aged 63 years. Brief funeral services were held at the M. E. church at 2 o'clock, Sunday afternoon,
conducted by Rev. Woodward. Many kind friends, with his I. O. O. F. and Masonic brethren acting as pall bearers, conveyed his body to the silent chambers of the grave in the City Cemetery. The deceased leaves a wife,
a son, and two daughters, to mourn his departure.

W. S. Patrick was born at Terre Haute, Vigo county, Ind., on January 20, 1826, where he lived with his parents until 1846, when he removed to Illinois. He was married April 26, 1856, to Miss Sarah Richards, his
present wife. From Illinois he removed to Cass county, Mo., in 1865 where he engaged in the dry goods business for a number of years. In the fall of 1884 he removed to Harper county, Ks., and in the spring of the
following year he came to Comanche county with his family and settled on land, where he lived up to the time of his death. He had been a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge for 34 years and a Mason for 25 years.

In all his relations in life he has been an honorable man, and while at all times standing well with himself earnestly desired to stand well with his neighbors and friends. The community mourns his death and extends condolence to his wife, children and relatives.
