Birth: 1842, Ireland
Death: May 14, 1925
Outagamie County
Wisconsin, USA


A message was received here Friday telling of the death of Mrs. Catherine Patten which occurred at her home in Appleton on Thursday, May 14th, following a lingering illness. The unreal was held on Monday from St. Mary's church in that city.
Catherine Gainor was born in Ireland and when three years of age she accompanied her parents to America. They settled at Woodstock, Canada, where her father died a few years later and in 1840 the remainder of the family moved to Green Bay. There her mother was married to the late Philip Greening. In 1851 the family came to Calumet Co. and located in the town of Charlestown on the Killsnake. When a girl Mrs. Patten came to the then village of Chilton and was united in marriage to the late Patrick Patten. They resided on the Cornelius McCole farm at Brant after marriage until they settled on what is now known as the Henry Albers farm in the western section of our city. They sold that place shortly after the railroad came through here and built and operated the hotel now known as the Great Northern. After selling the farm they lived on West School street opposite the Eagles Hall. In the late seventies they moved to Appleton. Her husband was killed on Dec. 14, 1901 while crossing a railroad track on his way to work.
Mrs. Patten was a very charming woman, known far and wide for her kindness of heart and stong sense of duty. She was very well liked among her friends, her happy disposition making it a pleasure to meet her.
She is survived by a son, John Patten of Chicago, and five daughters, Misses Mary, Frances, Josephine and Mrs. Ella Halls of Appleton and Mrs. Wm. Carroll of Chicago. She leaves a half brother, William Greening of Chippewa Falls.
