The Hon. Patrick H. Pope died May 4th of 1840. He was a native of Louisville, born March 17, 1806, son of Worden and Elizabeth Pope. He was graduated at the St. Joseph's College, in Bardstown, and began practice at the Jefferson Co. bar in 1827, where he soon took a commanding position. He was early offered by Governor Breathitt the place of Secretary of State to the Commonwealth; but declines it. He presently accepted, however, at the hands of the Jackson Democracy, a nomination for Representative in the State Legislature, and was triumphantly elected from a district in which his ticket was largely in the minority. When but twenty eight years of age, in 1834, he was chosen to the lower branch of Congress, in which he was the youngest member; and at the expiration of his term he again served in the State Legislature with much ability. His brilliant career was cut short by death, as above noted, in his thirty fifth year.
