His father, Thomas Patterson Norton, was born in South Carolina and his mother in Muhlenburg county. Ky. His. grandparents on both the Norton ami Patterson sides were from the "Green isle of the Ocean." whose brave and generous children are scattered all over the world- away from home not by choice, but by the force and cruelty of centuries of English oppression. His parents, came to Missouri from Kentucky In 1812 and set tled in Si. Charles county, and some years later came to Balls. Here he built a large brick dwelling in 1826. which is thought to be the tirst brick dwelling built lu the county. In his lather's family there were live children, anil tile Dr is the only oil'' now living. In the common schools of the county lie received his education. l bis early teachers he recalls Captain Barker, who taught In a cabin ne;.r where the resi dence ol Sinire Chas.

Many years ago when a dear sister was rolling the head in agonies of a fevered brain and lor weeks lingered in the deep and awful shallow of death, I looked with the deepest con cern the heart can feel to Dr. Norton and his noble associate. The interest of the physicians seemed akin to mine and we hoped together as we rejoiced when health came back.
