EDWARD P. PATTONMr. Edward P. Patton, one of the leading agriculturists and stock raisers of Green township, Brown county, owns a productive and well cultivated farm of one hundred and three acres on the 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 Sterling township, and reared a family of twelve children, three of whom are 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 ninety-four years.
     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 whom are now living:  Margaret, married first, Mr. Allen, and second, Mr. Cyrus L. Shumard, and they reside at Blanchester, Ohio; Mary Louisa deceased; William W., a farmer of Green township; Edward P., our subject; Ruth F., deceased; John R., deceased; Richard M., residing in Green township, and is engaged in farming; Minerva May, deceased; Sarah Isdell (Watson), of Green township. 
     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, born Apr. 19, 1898, is at home attending school; Velma Alberta, born 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.
