Memories about Cornelia M. PattersonEdit

Flo Beijer writes: "In the 1910 United States Census Cornelia is a widow and living in Brooklyn, New York and only two children were living with her at the time. It is known that Edwin left his family. It was difficult to read her occupation but I think it says 'operator'. To make ends meet, as a single parent/widow, she put two of her children in an Orphan Asylum in Brooklyn, New York. I found Lillian R. Webb and Marion Webb there, in the 1900 census. Marion was working as a sales lady so she had income at 16. John G. Webb was in school. In the 1910 census they are back with their mother. She may have been working as a private medical nurse."

DeathEdit

She died of "carditis" on September 10, 1940 at the "K of C Hospital" in Brooklyn according to her sexton's card. She was 77 years old.

BurialEdit

She was buried on September 14, 1940 in Evergreen Cemetery and was laid to rest in lot 5-A of the Lawn Crest 4 section of map 7. Her undertaker was Benjamin Grindroad of Brooklyn.
