Biography of Will E. Patch


Patch, Will E., Newstead, p. o. Akron, has been a resident of Erie county only since 1889. At that time he was induced to become superintendent of the Akron Cement Works, a position which his long experience in a similar line had well fitted him. He was born in Hanover, N. H., in 1850, but when not more than two years old his parents moved to Rutland, Vt. His father, Joseph L. Patch, was a native of Plymouth, Vt., as was also his grandfather; in fact the ancestors on his paternal side go back in Vermont over two hundred and fifty years. His mother was Annette Lull of Lebanon, N. H. W. E. Patch, after passing through the public schools of Rutland, became interested in mining machinery and in 1881 went to Chicago to superintend the putting in of machinery plants through the West and South for Fraser & Chalmers. The plant of which he now has charge has a capacity of 800 barrels of cement per day. In January, 1876, Mr. Patch married Agnes M, Loveland, daughter of S. B. and Mercy B. Loveland of Pittsford, Vt., and they have two living children: Robert J. and Abbie L., having buried two little girls in infancy.
