News reached the city today that Capt. J. S. Pattie, one of the
leading citizens of Van Alstyne, and a prominent citizen of this county
had died from a long siege of congestion of the stomach. The community
certainly lost a good man and his family a true and noble husband and father
when the angel of death called him to his reward above.
