At his home in this village, Thursday, Nov. 21st., Joseph PATTERSON, aged 46 years.
Mr. PATTERSON came to Grayling, from Brighton, in the Spring of 1888, and with his nephew, L. J. PATTERSON, established the NORTHERN DEMOCRAT, which was published for nine years, and was then sold to Jay ALLEN, who continued it for a time as the Grayling News. During the time Mr. PATTERSON served one term as County School Commissioner and in 1892 was appointed Pros. Attorney after the resignation of O. J. BELL, and served the balance of that year. He was elected to that office in 1896 and 1898. He was Register of the U. S. Land Office at this place during the Cleveland administration, and has served as director on our school board. Before coming here he had been admitted to the bar and since first assuming the office of prosecuting attorney has devoted himself to the study and practice of his profession, winning favor and quite a lucrative practice in this and adjoining counties.
He has been an acknowledged leader in the councils of his political party, and an active worker in the ranks, from which he will be greatly missed as well as from the social and business life of the village, where his personal popularity is not questioned. He was a member of the F. & A. M.; I. O. O. F., and K. of P. He leaves a wife, with his friends to mourn his sudden demise. The body was taken to Brighton Saturday morning for burial, accompanied by H. TRUMLEY as representative of the several lodges. The floral offerings on his casket by the several societies and from the teachers, were elaborate, indicating their esteem. Brief services were conducted at the house Friday evening, by Rev. G. SANDERSON, of Vanderbilt, Rev. Mr. GOLDIE being absent. (28 Nov 1901)
