PHOTOGRAPH NOTE - This photo of the Patton home is courtesy of Salem (Oregon) Public Library Historic Photograph Collections. The description attached to the photo is: "The Cooke-Patton House was an ornate palatial Victorian-style residence located on the NW corner of Court & Summer steets in Salem, Oregon. The house, which was located across the street from the State Capitol building, was razed in 1939 to make way for the Oregon State Library. It was built by E. N. Cooke between 1868 and 1870 when Mr. Cooke was State Treasurer. Mr. Cooke & Hiram Smith had been leaders of a wagon train from Ohio to Oregon in 1851. The Cookes became leading citizens socially and in business. Another member of the wagon train was 22-yr-old Thomas McFadden Patton who married Cooke's daughter Frances and became a subsequent owner of the house. The house displayed extensive gingerbread ornamentation of the Victorian period. The house-wide front porch was covered with a column-supported second-floor balcony, also the width of the house. A third-floor room above the entrance also had a balcony. A small fourth-floor tower room, also located above the entrance, stood alone.


At the family residence on Piety Hill, about 2:30 p.m., December 7, 1886, Mrs. Frances Mary Patton, wife of T. McF. Patton, aged 47 years. The funeral will take place at 10 o'clock a.m. tomorrow. 
Oregon Statesman 8 Dec 1886, 3:3 

Mrs. PATTON's Funeral -- A large concourse of friends assembled in the M. E. church yesterday morning, to attend the funeral services of Mrs. T. McF. Patton. An eloquent sermon was delivered by Rev. P. S. Knight, and remarks were made concerning the deceased by Rev. J. W. Harris. The floral decorations offered as a tribute to the memory of Mrs. Patton were very beautiful. The pallbearers were Z. F. Moody, R. P. Earhart, E. B. McElroy, J. W. Crawford, L. E. Pratt, S. Farrar, W. N. Ladue, and J. M. Martin. An extended article on the life of Mrs. Patton will appear in tomorrow's Statesman, being unavoidably crowded out of this issue.
