Gives birth date as December 11, 1877 and age as 41 instead of December 11, 1876 as other records indicate. Date of registration is not listed but was inferred to be June 5, 1917 by examination of the other records from Sumner County, TN. If he was born on December 11, 1877, he would have been 39 on June 5, 1917 so it appears that possibly more than one error occurred in the recording.

6489. “Former State Sen. Paterson dies Convicted of stealing funds while Niagara treasurer,” Lloyd H Paterson, Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester, NY, December 29, 1988, 12.
ALBANY — Former State Sen. Lloyd H. Paterson, who lost his Senate seat after being convicted of stealing public funds while he was Niagara County treasurer, died yesterday. He was 63.

Paterson, who had homes in Niagara Falls and Albany, became ill Monday while driving back to Albany from a holiday visit to Niagara Falls and was admitted to Albany Veterans Hospital that night.

At the time of his death, he was on the Albany staff of the New York Power Authority as a legislative representative, a job he took in December 1983 after completing five years probation for his 1977 conviction on 33 counts of grand larceny during his term as treasurer.

Republican Paterson entered public life in 1957 as a member of the Niagara County Board of Supervisors.

The former Niagara University basketball star spent two years on the board and then resigned to accept the post of deputy commissioner of the state Athletic Commission.

He held that position until 1964, when he was elected Niagara County treasurer. After three terms as treasurer, he was elected to the state Senate in 1972, representing the 60th District comprised of Niagara and Orleans counties, the City of Tonawanda and Grand Island.

In December 1977, Paterson was indicted by a Niagara County grand jury on 38 counts of grand larceny, falsifying records and official misconduct in the theft of $93,400 in public funds. He was convicted on 33 counts, thus forfeiting his Senate seat.

Paterson was placed of five years' probation, ordered to make restitution of $1,339 for money missing from the county's Blue Cross-Blue Shield accounts and fined $18,500.
