HENRY C. LINDERSMITH, M. D.
Doctor Lindersmith, though one of the younger representatives of the medical profession in Defiance county, has
already attained eminent success in his chosen calling, and is a popular physician of Sherwood. Born in Montpelier,
Williams county. Ohio. October 12, 1867. he is a son of George W. and Frances (Umbenhour) Lindersmith, the former
of whom is now a farmer of Fulton county, Ohio.
Our subject, who is the elder of two children born to this worthy couple, was reared in Williams and Fulton counties,
and completed his literary education at the Fayette Normal University of Fayette, Ohio. In preparing for his professional
career, he attended the Detroit College of Medicine for two years, and was afterward a student in the Barnes Medical
College of St. Louis, Missouri, for one year, graduating from that institution in March, 1894. Coming to Sherwood,
Defiance county, he at once opened an office, and has since successfully engaged in practice, his skill and ability
soon winning him recognition.
Doctor Lindersmith was married in Sherwood, April 14, 1897, to Miss Mary E. Clark, a daughter of the late William
Clark, of Mark township, Defiance county. The Doctor is a member of the Defiance County Medical Society, and also
of Sherwood Lodge, No. 149, I. O. G. T., as he is a strong temperance man.
