Duckworth, a native of Warren County, and the only daughter of Robert Duckworth, with whom Mr. Patterson was some time engaged in the grocery business in Lebanon.  Since 1872, he has devoted his whole attention to photographing, in which art he has met with the best success.  He is an enthusiast in his business, uses all new appliances that appear and takes great pains to keep himself thoroughly posted in all the details of that ever-improving art.  He has an art gallery situated on East Silver street, which he has fitted up with a true artist's taste, and where he exhibits the work he does by the various modern methods of taking, enlarging and finishing pictures.

THOMAS J. PATTERSON, farmer; P. O. Level.  Among the solid, industrious and enterprising men of Warren Co., Mr. Patterson stands meritoriously high; he justly received the name of self-made, which is the result of determined industry and self denying frugality; he was careful of expenditures, invested his earnings judiciously, and yet beginning at the foot of the ladder; he is now the owner of 600 acres, and is considered one of the leading farmers of the county.  He was born in this county Feb. 13, 1846, receiving a liberal education in the graded schools of the county, and graduating in a commercial course at Pittsburg, Penn., in the class of 1866.  He was married Dec. 24, 1867, to Miss Harriett J. Ingle, a native of this county, and born Jan. 30, 1850.  In all the vicissitudes of life his wife has ever lent a helping hand to him, and makes their home one of genuine hospitality.  Any one who calls at this pleasant homestead receives a cordial welcome, void of cold formality or intentional neglect.  These parents have a family of five children - Mollie (born Dec. 23, 1868, since deceased), Luella F. (born June 20, 1871), John J. (born Feb. 14, 1874), Iva B.

Board of Agriculture; he is an ardent Mason, being a member of Blanchester Lodge, No. 53.  He is of a religious turn of mind, temperate in all things, and he and his worthy lady are members of the M.
