  • Name Alvus Houston Patterson 
    Born 17 May 1826  Tazewell, Clairborne County, Tennessee Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Date is from headstone
      There seems to be some confusion as to where he was born. Some researchers say Tazewell County, Illinois and some say Tazewell, Clairborne County, Tennessee. His daughters Mary Rosetta and Martha wrote his autobiography - and they indicated that he was born in Tennessee as does his obituary. Additionally, all census records with the exception of one indicate he was born in Tennessee and his Death Register indicates Tennessee as well.

      A. H. PATTERSON DEAD. Respected Citizen Passes Away - Was Well Known for Labors With Sick: Alvus Hueston Patterson, a well known resident of Salt Lake county, died at his home in Sugarhouse ward at 2:15 o'clock this (Wednesday) morning, of diabetes. He has been ill about eight months. He was familiar among the people because of his ministrations among the sick for a number of years past. His funeral will be held at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, from the First ward meeting house. The deceased was a native of Tennessee, having been born in Taswell County, May 17, 1826. He joined the Church in 1857, and came to Utah in 1868, settling at Payson, where he lived until 1878. He then moved to Arizona, having been called on a mission. He came back to Utah six years later, and moved to Salt Lake City in 1887. Since the last named date he devoted himself almost exclusively to visiting the sick, among whome he proved to be a man of very strong faith. In his experience, Elder Patterson crossed the plains eleven times, ten of the trips being in the work of bringing immigrants to Utah. He was a High Priest at the time of his death. He has had three wives, one surviving him. He leaves fourteen living children, 65 grandchildren, and 28 great-grandchildren. He was a kind and affectionate husband and father, devoted to his family. He was highly respected in the community, both in Salt Lake County and the other places he has lived as a most estimable citizen, always ready to give aid wherever his services could be used to bring comfort and peace to those in need of help.
