D F PENDLETON
A member of the dental fraternity of Horton since 1892, Dr. Pendleton has attained a high degree of success in the practice of his chosen profession. He was born in Trimble county, Kentucky, on the 22d of August, 1860, and is a son of A. J. Pendleton, deceased. The latter was born and educated in Kentucky, and was married there to Miss Taylor, who is now living in Missouri. Dr. Pendleton acquired his preliminary education in the public schools, and with a broad general knowledge to serve as a foundation upon which to rear the superstructure of professional learning, he took up the study of dentistry in the Kansas Dental College in Kansas City, Missouri, where he was graduated in the class of 1882. Since his arrival in Horton, in 1892, he has followed his profession with exceptional success. He is well-read in the science of dentistry and the leading journals keep him in touch with the advancement which is continually being made in dentistry. His unflagging energy and close application, together with his marked skill in handling the delicate instruments used in the profession, have enabled him to gain a foremost place among its followers in Brown county.
The Doctor was married in Kansas City, in 1891, to Miss Madge Cummins, of Jefferson City, Missouri, a young lady of fine culture and good education. Their union has been blessed with two children, Gail Cummins and Juliene Bailey. In his political views the Doctor is a Democrat who keeps well informed on the issues of the day. Socially he is connected with several fraternal orders, including the Masonic and Knights of Pythias lodges, having attained the degree of the Uniform Rank in the latter. His wife is a member of the Christian church and both enjoy the high regard of many friends in Horton, where the hospitality of the best homes is extended to them.
