Died From Paralysis.
Ellis Patterson, a Well Known Colored Citizen, Passes Away.

Ellis Patterson, a colored citizen of this city, died at his home, of paralysis, on Sunday night last.  Some time ago he received a stroke of paralysis from which he rallied so as to again pursue his work regularly and seemed to be in his wonted health almost when on Sunday afternoon he received another stroke, from which he was prostrated and never rose from his bed.

Ellis was an industrious colored citizen, was upright and correct in all his dealings and had the good will not alone of those of his race but of white people also.  He had been for many years in partnership with Haynes Milner, in the blacksmith and wood working business.  He possessed considerable skill in both these trades and got up a meritorious cultivator a few years ago which he had patented and which had an extensive sale.

He was a dutiful and useful member of the A. M. E. Church.

His remains were interred in the colored section at Oak Hill on Tuesday.
