"HENRY KITTINGER, M. D., was born in Buffalo, New York, July 21, 1830. SAMUEL KITTINGER, his father was a carpenter by trade, and was for many years a musician in Buffalo. He married Miss LUCY GROSH, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and was by her the father of four children, of whom HENRY and a sister only are yet living. He came with his family to Richland County, Ohio, in about 1835, and there died about 1839. Mrs. LUCY KITTINGER afterward married CHARLES DOYLE, and is now living, again a widow, in Dayton, Ohio. DR. KITTINGER accompanied his parents to Ohio, and was there reared. His early life was one of hardship and self-denial. The step-father died when HENRY was about sixteen, and the care of the family fell upon the latter, he being the eldest of the children, and thus he was deprived of an opportunity for early study. In 1856, he left the family at Dayton in comfortable circumstances, but for many years continued to remit money for the support of them whom he had left behind. He first located at Peru, Indiana, and engaged in making brick for the court house; thence he went to Kokomo, where in 1862, he began the study of medicine under Dr. H. C. COLE; attended lectures the winter of 1864-65 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and outside the regular course studied qualitative analysis, toxicology, and urine analysis. The spring of 1865, he went to Columbus, and in June graduated from the Starling Medical College. He then came to Winamac and entered upon the practice of his profession, acquiring a large and lucrative patronage. In 1874, he took a course at Bellevue, New York, graduating in February, 1875; he also received special instruction at the New York and Manhattan Eye and Ear Infirmaries; at DeMilt's Dispensary, on throat diseases; special private instruction in surgery, under Drs. FRANK H. HAMILTON and ALEXANDER B. MOTT; and physical diagnosis under Drs. A. FLINT and E. G. JANEWAY. Returning to Winamac, he continued in practice until within the past few years, since when he has gradually retired from country and night practice, owing to failing health. Although he yet practices considerably, he is in partnership in corn buying, dealing in lumber, and operating a planing-mill. He is a member both of the Masonic and Odd Fellow fraternities, and is an Independent Republican. He was married, Ocotber 31, 1878, to ELIZAZBETH A. WILSON, a daughter of RICHARD and LUCY (WEBB) WILSON."
