There is no familial connection, but Doc Patten was a beloved physician in Morristown, so someone in my family saved his obituary.  His picture was included in the obituary if anyone would like a copy.

Charles S. Patten Answers Last Call
          After an illness of one week duration, Chas. S. Patten died at his home in Morristown Wednesday night July 12, 1922 of heart trouble, in his 66th year of age.
          Mr. Patten had not enjoyed good health for several years, and during the past few years had several attacks of heart trouble which grew in intensity as they became more frequent.  The last and fatal attack came a week ago and it was so severe that great anxiety concerning his recovery was manifest from the beginning.  A heart specialist from Indianapolis was called Sunday, and all the aid that could be given was supplied, but only temporary relief could be rendered.
          Surviving are the widow, one son, Hughes Patten, one daughter, Mrs. Nolan Jessup , two brothers, Dr. V. C. Patten of Morristown, and H. B. Patten of Louisviille (sic) and one sister, Mrs. Rebecca Allendar.
          In the death of Mr. Patten Morristown has lost one of its most honored citizens, the community has lost an able leader and the business interests have lost a wise councillor.  Those who held closer relations with him have lost a friend whose place can never be filled, and his immediate family and relatives are deprived of a kindly and considerate husband, father and guide.
          These are the human elements that bring forth sorrow and weeping.  The familiar countenance, the kindly voice, the thoughtful provider and home builder to whom they have ever lookd (sic) for substance and direction is with the family no more.
          The gentle spirit that inspired the confidence of many friends and drew them to him has found its abiding place in another world.
          All that was so dear and so good so far as mortal eye can see, has returned to the dust from whence it came. That is mortality.
          Out of this limited sphere, circumscribed by time, his spirit is lifted and now reposes with the keeper of the immortal host gathered by the ages on the other side of the shore of life.
