[p. 77] Montgomery Linvillea leading and very successful physician of the city of New Castle, was born near Independence, Washington, Pa., March 9, 1854, and is a son of Jeremiah P. and Martha J. (Montgomery) Linville, and grandson of Joseph Linville.

Our subject's father was reared and educated to agricultural pursuits, and followed the same the greater part of his life. spending the last twenty years of his life in retirement in New Castle, Pa. He died at the age of seventy-three, survived by his wife, Martha, who was a sister of William Montgomery, and one son, our subject.

Dr. Linville obtained his preliminary education in the district schools of Washington, completed a collegiate course of study in Bethany College, and pursued his medical studies at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia. He graduated as a member of the class of 1873, and although but nineteen years of age he at once commenced the practice of his profession, locating in Princeton, Pa., and remaining there five months and a half, when he came to New Castle, where he has made his home since.

In 1873, he married Della Chapman, and they were permitted to enjoy two short sweet years of happy married life, she dying in 1875, and leaving him to bear life's trials and disappointments alone.

He is a fit representative of the medical profession of Lawrence County, and a gentleman who has attained prominence as a practitioner by carefully diagnosing his cases, and bringing that skill to bear in their treatment, which he is enabled to do by years of careful study and constant practice. His indisputed and profound knowledge of his profession, and the large success, which he has won by his persevering industry and attention to business, have given to him the standing and prestige he so richly merits. His office is at No. 35 North Mercer. He is railway surgeon for the W. N. Y. & P. R. R., and is a member of the National Association of Railway Surgeons. He is a member of the Lawrence County Medical Society, and the State Association of Physicians and Sturgeons. He is prominent in Masonic circles, and is a member of the Knights Templar of New Castle, Mahoning Lodge, No. 243, F. & A. M.; Delta Chapter No. 170, R. A. M.; and New Castle Commandery. As a leading exponent of correct medical practice, and as a man in every way worthy of the most unqualified esteem and regard, we have placed Dr. Linville's portrait on a preceding page.
