Mr. Pat Lyddane, who was the oldest man in the county, died Tuesday night at the home of his grandson, Mr. Ed Kelley, in the Valley Hill neighborhood.  Mr. Lyddane was past 98 years of age and had been a citizen of the county  nearly all of his life.  He had been a good and useful citizen until the last few years when he was enfeebled by age.  He is survived by one son, Mr. Ade Lyddane, and quite a number of grandchildren.  The funeral will take place at St. Rose this morning.
