Dr. Lincoln C. Chenoweth, a promising young physician and surgeon of Pineville, Mo., is a native of that place, born on March 20, 1862. He is a son of the late Dr. Albert W. Chenoweth, who for many years was a prominent physician of Pineville. In the fall of 1862 the latter removed with his family to Lawrence, Kas., but removed to Lecompton three weeks prior to Quantrell’s raid in Lawrence. They returned to Pineville in the fall of 1865, and here Lincoln C. received his early education. He afterward attended school at Neosho. He attended St. Louis School of Pharmacy one year, and the Missouri Medical College of St. Louis two years, graduating from the latter in 1886. He also took one course in the hospital there. On July 10, 1887, he was united in marriage with America McNatt, a daugh­ter of Hon. John J. McNatt, of Indian Springs, the present representative to the State Legislature from McDonald County.
