Note: " John W. Patterson, of Greensboro, a wholesale grocer, is now
head of the Patterson Company at Greensboro. Mr. Patterson was born on a farm
in Mount Airy Township of Surry County, North Carolina. (The next several paragraphs
are included in John's ancestors' notes). Mr. John W. Patterson during his youth
was educated in rural schools and learned the fundamentals of farming and tobacco
manufacture under his father. In 1888 he went West and spent three interesting
years of varied experience in the old Indian Territory. On returning to North
Carolina he located at Mount Airy and was a tobacco manufacturer there until
1895, when he removed to Richmond, Virginia, and was connected with the tobacco
industry in that city for a year. He then returned to Mount Airy and did business
in that city until 1901, when he removed to Fayetteville and was a wholesale
grocery merchant three years. In 1904 Mr. Patterson came to Greensboro and organized
the Patterson Company, of which he has since been general manager." page
