Alexander Irvine was the first physician of Greensburg. He was born,
raised, educated, and studied medicine in Ireland. He was regarded as a
most excellent physician, and obtained a most extensive practice, though
very laborious. He often visited patients a distance of forty-five miles
from his residence, there being no physician nearer. In 1814 he was
elected a member of the Legislature from the county of Green, a colleague
of Colonel Liberty Green. After his service in the Legislature, he became
somewhat intemperate, and obtaining but little practice at that time he
removed to the country, where he married at the age of more than fifty
years. He afterward removed to the southern part of the State, where he
died. He had no relations in America.
