Dr. George R. Peckinpaugh 1

  • Born: 5 Jun 1854, Crawford County, Indiana, USA

  General Notes:

Dr. George R. Peckinpaugh was born in Crawford county, Indiana, June 5, 1854, being the next youngest of twelve children born to Nicholas and Eleanor (Scheckell) Peckinpaugh. The parents were from Hardin county, Kentucky, but emigrated to Crawford county, Indiana, in 1818. Here he was raised, married and reared a large family. Dr. George R. remained on the farm till he was seventeen years old, when he entered the Hartsville, Ind., University and later the University at Bloomington, Ind., completing there his sophomore year. He then took a two-years course in chemistry and other branches pertaining to the medical profession. In the fall of 1878 he matriculated at the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati, graduating in 1881. He located in Mt. Vernon in September of that year and began the practice of his profession. He soon became one of the most popular physicians and surgeons of Posey county. From then until 1907, with the exception of a short time spent in Chicago, he practiced in this city and vicinity. In that year he removed to Evansville, Ind., where he has since devoted his entire time to pulmonary diseases, in the treatment of which he has been very successful. The doctor is affable, courteous and unassuming in manner and simple in his dress. Though some of his theories as to the causes and treatment of pulmonary diseases are original, the doctor is honest, terribly in earnest, and able to give a reason for the faith that is in him. He was married to Miss Rose Alexander, an accomplished young lady of this city.
