Death of an Old and Esteemed Citizen — George Patterson

The Democratic Advocate of Westminster, Maryland

November 18, 1869

Mr. George Patterson, an esteemed citizen of Carroll county, died on Friday, at his residence, Springfield, near Sykesville. The deceased was the youngest son of the late Wm. Patterson, well known in Baltimore, and who was possessed of a large amount of real estate in this city.

He was also the brother of Mrs. Elizabeth Patterson, former wife of the late Jerome Bonaparte. He took possession of his late residence, Springfield, containing about three thousand acres, in 1824, and has made it his home ever since. He was possessed of considerable wealth, and was largely engaged in importing and raising improved stock.

He was a large exhibitor at the agricultural fairs held in the State before the beginning of the late war, but never competed for premiums, taking pride only in adding to the interest of the show by the presence of his fine animals.

His death will be regretted by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
