Marathon pike. Mr. Patton has also another farm in the northern
part of Green township. He was born in Sterling township, Brown
county, Ohio, Apr. 7, 1852, a son of Richard and Rebecca (Irwin) Patton.
James Patton, grandfather of Mr. E. P. Patton
of this review, was the first of the name in Ohio and came from
Pennsylvania. He was a successful farmer and served in the War of
1812, receiving a pension for that service. He married Miss
Margaret Klein a native of Warren county, Ohio. They located in

living: Mrs. Martha Myers, of Sterling township, and Mrs.
Emily Lindsey, now of Cincinnati, and John Patton of Green
township. James Patton passed away Aug. 21, 1888, at the age of
Richard Patton, son of James and Margaret
(Klein) Patton, was born in Warren county, Ohio, where he spent his
boyhood days, coming to Brown county with his parents as a young man.
Richard was a cooper by trade in his early life, and in later years
engaged in farming. His death took place in 1904.
Rebecca (Irwin) Patton was born in Sterling
township, Brown county, Ohio, and was a daughter of Robert and Mary Irwin
who reared several children, all now deceased. She passed from this
life in 1897. Her marriage was blessed with nine children, five of

Edward P. Patton grew up on his father's farm,
and assisted in the clearing and developing of the home farm. He
received but limited educational advantages. He remained on the farm
until his first marriage, which occurred in 1874, to Miss Hannah Simpkins,
who died in June, 1895, in her thirty-ninth year.
Mr. Patton was united in marriage to Miss
Mary Brown in 1896, and to them have been born four children: Carroll,

Sept. 14, 1899, is attending school; Beulah Idell, born June 21,
1902, in school; and Lorena Alveretta, born Sept. 29, 1910.
Since Mar. 12, 1888, Mr. Patton has occupied his
present farm, and has made many noticeable improvements, including a large
modern house, barn and convenient out buildings. The farm is finely
equipped with modern machinery, and the well-tended appearance of the home
and farm denote pride and industry.
Mr. Patton received fifteen hundred dollars from
his father toward the purchase of the farm home, and by his energy and
enterprise he has accumulated two fine and productive farms. He is a
man of more than ordinary good common sense, and is possessed of a genial
and courteous manner, which has won for him many fast friends.
Mr. Patton is in favor of the principles of the
Republican party and has served his party as supervisor and a member of the
board of education.
The religious relations of Mr. and Mrs. Patton
are with the Christian church of Five Mile, and to that denomination they
give generously of the means.
