PATILLO, Henry, clergyman, born in Scotland in 1726; died in Dinwiddie county, Virginia, in 1801. He emigrated to this country at nine years of age, settled in Virginia, and became a merchant's clerk. He subsequently studied for the ministry, was ordained in 1758, and then removed to North Carolina, where he was in charge of Presbyterian churches until his death. He was active in pre-Revolutionary movements, a member of the North Carolina Provincial congress in 1775, was chaplain to that body, and chairman of the committee of the whole. He also taught for many years, and was an excellent classical scholar. His ministry was especially successful among the negroes. Hampden Sidney gave him the degree of A. M. in 1787. He published in that year a small collection of sermons, edited an abridged edition of John Leland's " Deistical Writers," and left in manuscript a catechism, several essays, and a geography.
