JACOB KENDELL, M. D.
Jacob Kendell, M.D., druggist and physician, Covington. Dr. Kendell, a life-resident of Miami Co., was born in Newton Township Dec. 16, 1845; his parents, Jerry and Mary (Boggs) Kendell were early residents of Newton Township. His father's death occurred there in 1850, and his mother's in 1853. Jacob, being an orphan at 8 years of age, was cared for by an uncle until he was 12 years of age, during which the uncle made him pay more attention to work than schooling. He then became the ward of Dr. Weaver, whose biography also appears in this work, and who not only gave him opportunity for education, but also encouraged him. When he arrived at 18, he began teaching and reading medicine. He graduated at the Miami Medical College at Cincinnati, in 1869 and in the same year began practice in connection with Dr. Weaver, in which he has remained ever since. Weaver & Kendell are druggists as well as practitioners (see Dr. Weaver's biography). The Doctor is the present Township Clerk, and highly respected both as a citizen and physician. His residence is a neat brick, situated on High street.
