 Little Home Histories, Part 53 -- The Patterson History: A Dog Story.

by Hartley, Elizabeth J.

See previous entry: Little Home Histories, Part 52 -- The Patterson History.

After Uncle Charles Livezey moved away from the farm, the dog finally got to our home. Grandfather and Grandmother came to live with father and mother. Grandmother lived only a few Weeks and passed away 10th month 1897. The dog remembered grandmother as she fed him so often. After he came to our house he came in and greeted all but soon went to the hall door and whined. He found all but grandmother. He died a few years later.

It appears that a number of Patterson families moved from North Carolina to Ohio and settled first at Concord Meeting at Colerain, Ohio, then moved to Stillwater monthly meeting and later on, some moved to Ridge monthly meeting.
