George T. Patrick

PATRICK, George T., a prosperous farmer of Scotland Township, McDonough County, Ill., was born in Bethel Township, McDonough County, October 12, 1852, the son of Charles and Jane (Brawdy) Patrick, natives of Adair County, Ky. The paternal grandfather was Samuel Patrick. Charles Patrick came with his parents to Bethel Township in 1834, and settled on a farm. There he married, and lived there until 1862, when he enlisted in the Union army. After his discharge from the service he moved to Macomb, Ill., where his son George lived until he was twenty-four years old. He then came to Scotland Township and bought an eighty-acre farm in Section 20, where he has since remained. He has 206 acres in the home place, and 160 acres in Section 28. He carries on general farming and raises horses, cattle and hogs.

On January 25, 1878, George T. Patrick was married to Nancy J. Campbell, who was born in Scotland Township, where, in girlhood, she attended the public school. Three children have been born of this union, namely: Delia M. (Mrs. James Barclay), of Scotland Township; Charles and Frank, who dwell under the paternal roof. In religion, Mr. Patrick adheres to the Presbyterian faith, and on political issues, supports the Republican cause.
