Notes:  Fred William Patten was born 30 Oct 1877* in Kansas.  He was the second of seven children born to George D. Patten and Eva M. Besse.  The family arrived in California between 1884 and 1886.  In the 1900 U.S. census, the family was living at 700 North Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena, California.  Fred was in the hardware business, his father was in the lumber business.
Fred married Julia Hildebrand about 1906.  In the 1910 U.S. census, they were living with his brother Henry's family at 1120 Stoneman Avenue in Alhambra, California.  Henry and his wife Mary had two young children, and there was a household servant.  Both Fred and Henry were lumbermen.

Fred and Julia had one son, Fred William Patten, Jr., born 18 Jun 1912.  In 1917, when Fred registered for the World War draft, the family was living in their own home at 103 N. Stoneman Avenue in Alhambra.  Fred was described as tall and of stout build, with blue eyes and brown hair.  He owned his own lumberyard, located at 424 South San Pedro in the City of Los Angeles.  The 1920 U.S. census shows that their home was owned free of mortgage.

The family also traveled.  On 23 Jan 1928, Fred, Julia, and Fred, Jr., sailed from Los Angeles, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii, aboard the S.S. President Hayes, arriving on 3 Feb 1928.  They also traveled to Europe.  On 27 Jul 1929, they sailed from Cherbourg, France, aboard the S.S. Berengaria arriving in New York, New York, on 2 Aug 1929.

Their son Fred, Jr. died in 1935.  In 1938 Fred and Julia were registered as Republicans.  In the 1940 U.S. census, Fred was listed as manager in the lumber business.  He had had one year of high school, and their home was valued at $5,000.  When Fred died 3 Aug 1947, he and Julia were still living in their Stoneman Avenue home in Alhambra.  He is buried in the San Gabriel Cemetery, San Gabriel, California, along with his son, and later his wife.

*The California Death Index gives a birth year of 1878, which is probably incorrect.  The 1900 USA census and the draft registration records clearly give 1877 as the year of birth.
