From The Forsyth County News, September 22, 1921:

A tribute to the memory of Hiram Patterson.

Early in the morning of the 26th day of May, 1921, the angel of death called Hiram Patterson to this eternal home.

Uncle Hiram had lived here 87 years, 5 months, and 16 days when the transition came. A good citizen, a true and loyal soldier, a consecrated Christian, a devoted husband, and a loving father, was the life of this noble character.

It was a pleasure to be associated with him and hear him talk of his many thrilling experiences as a soldier and as a Christian. He made mention of his conversion when a young man and of his failure to join the church and discharge his duty, but while in the Virginia Army in 1863, he became more interested than ever before and promised the Lord that if it was His will that he should be allowed to get home to his wife and children, he would live a different life.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W.L. Singleton and F.C. Owen, and the Masonic fraternity of which order he had been a member for about 40 years, after which his remains were laid to rest in the New Hope cemetery to await the resurrection morning.
