Biography reproduced from page 382 of the History of Kossuth and Humboldt Counties, Iowa published in 1884:
D. Patterson is a native of Liverpool, England, where he was born in 1837. His parents were Scotch people, and had resided in Liverpool but a short time prior to his birth. He came to this country when but ten years of age, and resided in the “land of steady habits” until his majority, when he came “out west” to Rock Co., Wis., whence he removed to Keokuk Co., Iowa, and from thence to Washington county. Was postmaster in Dutch Creek, Washington county, and afterwards in Cresswell, Keokuk county, in which latter place he was the pioneer merchant. He came into Algona in the fall of 1870, since which time he has been in the mercantile trade.
