From "The Fort Dodge Messinger" Fort Dodge, Iowa, Monday Evening January 22, 1906 page 8.
"The death of Mr. H. Van Patten, of Steward, Illinois, occured at the home of his son Dr. E. M. Van Patten Sunday morning at five o'clock after a lingering illness of several years. The body will be taken to his home in Steward tonight where funeral services will be held Tuesday at one o'clock. Dr. Van Patten and mother and sister will accompany the body.
The deceased came to this city for treatment about two months ago. All hope of his recovery had been given up this last week for he grew weaker and weaker with every day. Mrs. H. Van Patten arrived in Fort Dodge Wednesday morning and later in the week one of his daughters, Mrs. Atwood, of Langdon came to his bedside.
H. Van Patten was one of the oldest residents of Steward being seventy years of age. He leaves a wife and five children besides a host of friends to mourn his death. The children are, Mrs. L. L. Atwood, of Langdon, Mrs. Mabel Clark of Aurora, Illinois, Miss Marion Van Patten, of Steward, Messrs. E. M. Van Patten, of Fort Dodge, Fred Van Patten, of North Park, Colorado."

From "Fort Dodge Semi Weekly Chronicle" Fort Dodge, Iowa, Friday, January 26, 1906, VXXII No. 8, Page 6.
"Harmon Van Patten, father of Dr. Van Patten of this city, died at the home of his son, Sunday morning. Deseased had resided in this city since the middle of December and was over seventy years of age. Three children and his wife were at the bedside when death came. The children are Fred, of Colorado, Mrs. L. Atwood, of Langdon, Iowa and Dr. Van Patten.
The remains were taken to Steward, Illinois, the family home, where interment was made. Owing to the fact that he has been ill during the larger part of the time since his arrival in the city, Mr. Van Patten was little known in the city. The many friends of Dr. and Mrs. Van Patten will sympthize with them in their bereavement."

After Hannah Nettleton Van Patten's death, Harmon married Jeanette "Nettie" Fuller Sept. 5, 1878, the "wife" mentioned above. They had one child, Marion Delight Van Patten.
