Edward T. Pendleton, M. D., has given but ten years to the practice of his profession, but those years have been very successful ones, a result of most careful preparation for the profession when a student, followed by continued study, keen observation, and painstaking care in his practice, at Wellsville, Kan. Dr. Pendleton was born in Burlington, Kan., Nov. 17, 1873, and was reared in the atmosphere of a refined and cultured home. His father, Samuel E. Pendleton, was born in Logan county, Illinois, and was educated principally at Monmouth University, Monmouth, Ill. He served the cause of the Union during the Civil war as a soldier in the Seventieth Illinois infantry, and after the close of the war entered the Methodist ministry in Illinois. About 1870 he removed to Kansas and accepted the pastorate of the Methodist Episcopal church, at Independence, where he remained several years, and was then elected presiding elder, serving in the different districts of Topeka, Atchison, and Independence, for fourteen years. This service was followed by his retirement to a farm he had bought, near Baldwin, Kan., where he lived until his death, in 1904. He was a Mason. Prestin Pendleton, father of Samuel E., was a native of Kentucky but in 1827 moved to Illinois, where he engaged in farming and there he died. George A. Pendleton, a former United States minister to England, was a cousin of Prestin Pendleton. Sarah (Kline) Pendleton, mother of Dr. Pendleton, resides in Kansas City, Kan., and her father went to the gold fields of California, in 1848, and died there. J. D. Botkin, who ran for governor of Kansas, in 1908, is her half brother, as is also J. T. Botkin, assistant secretary of state.
Dr. Pendleton received his education in the common and high schools of Topeka and continued his literary education in Baker University, in which he was graduated in 1896. After one year at Northwestern University, Chicago, Ill., he began his professional training at the University Medical College, Kansas City, and graduated in 1899. He then began practice, at Ottawa, Kan., but after one year there went to Wellsville, where he has since practiced very successfully and where he is esteemed not only for his professional attainments but as a public spirited and worthy citizen. He owns valuable property in Kansas City and also owns valuable land in Missouri and in Oregon. In the line of his profession Dr. Pendleton is connected with the county, state, and American medical associations, and thus keeps in touch with the advanced thought of the profession. He affiliates fraternally with the Knights of Pythias and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and has filled all the chairs in the last named order. Politically, he gives allegiance to the Republican party.Pages 509-510 from volume III, part 1 of Kansas: a cyclopedia of state history, embracing events, institutions, industries, counties, cities, towns, prominent persons, etc. ... / with a supplementary volume devoted to selected personal history and reminiscence.
