    Archive of A.E. Patton, Esq. Including more than 300 items from the offices of attorney A.E. Patton of Curwensville, PA. A.E. Patton was the son of John Patton, Sr. of Philadelphia, who moved to Curwensville in 1828 and served as associate judge of the county for five years, later acting as justice of the peace for several years more. From all indications, A.E. Patton followed closely in his father's footsteps, apparently taking over John Sr.'s legal practice upon the elder's death in 1848.

    This huge archive contains letters, documents, bank deposit slips, and legal instruments from Patton's files covering the years 1850 - 1890. Because of the sheer number of items offered here, prospective buyers are advised to view the lot personally prior to bidding.
