The house was filled with relatives and friends. Many beautiful flowers covered the coffin. The bearers were Arthur Harrington, Howard Tillson, Harper Steele, Herman Harrington and interment was in Hillington cemetery. Relatives were present from Binghamton, Norwich, Oxford and Morris.
Mrs. Patrick was a daughter of German and Philathea (Hunter) Wickham and was born at Starkville, August 8, 1844.
Just before the Civil war broke out she married Stephen Card, who served his country during the war. To them were born two sons, Ruben, who died several years ago, and Charles, with whom she had lived for the past few years.
Mrs. Patrick separated from Mr.. Card many years ago. Later she married Albert Patrick and for a number of years they resided at Oxford. Shortly after his death she gave up her home and for a year lived in Binghamtohn with her grandson, Linn C. Card. About 10 years ago she came to New Lisbon, where she has since resided with her son. During her residence here she made many loyal friends who cherished her memory.
Mrs. Patrick was a very active, industrious woman, never allowing herself to be idle and although nearly 86 years of age, she was remarkably smart for one of her years, being able to attend to her household duties till the day of her death. Her passing was simply falling asleep.
Surviving besides the son above mentioned, is one brother, Justus Wickham of Morris, two grandsons, Linn Card of Binghamton and Lewis Card of Morris, an adopted granddaughter, Mrs. Scott Rogers of Norwich, two great-grand-daughters, and several nieces and nephews.
