DR. GEORGE W. STRICKLER, a prominent physician of Stephensburg, Hardin Co.,
Ky., was born in Jefferson County, Va., November 28, 1826. He came to
Kentucky with his father, George W. Strickler, and was then but four years
old. (For sketch of parents see that of Dr. Frank P. Strickler, of
Elizabethtown.) He was reared in Hardin County, receiving his primary
education in Elizabethtown, and afterward attended the St. Joseph's College
at Bardstown, Ky. At the age of twenty-three years, having decided upon a
professional life, he began the study of medicine, performing the usual
preparatory reading under the tutorship of Dr. J. W. Smith, and graduated
from the medical department of Jefferson College, Philadelphia, in 1850.
In 1851 he established a practice in Nelson County, Ky., in the village of
Boston, where he prosecuted a successful practice until 1861, when the
tocsin of war had sounded the call for soldiers. He then enlisted in the
Sixth Kentucky Infantry, of which regiment he was assistant surgeon, and
was also a surgeon in the Mexican war, performing the offices of hospital
steward, serving until the close of the war. Dr. Strickler is a man of
more than ordinary ability, and has served Hardin County in the Lower House
of the Kentucky Legislature. With the exception of his time in military
service and one term in the Legislature, his life has been devoted to the
practice of his profession, in which he enjoys an enviable reputation. He
married Miss Ruth E. Talbott, and has a family of six children: Dr.
Clarenca A. Strickler, of Leitchfield, Ky.; Nannie K. (Moorman), Minnie J.,
George T., Lizzie A. and William C. Strickler. In politics the Doctor
