law and accepted the office of secretary and treasurer of the Akron Sewer Pipe company, the largest institution of its kind at that time in the world, which manufactured vitrified sewer pipe. Rapid success followed his management of this company, the product of which is 1880 had reached the amount of $400,000 per annum. The completion of the Atlantic and Great Western railroad in 1864 gave a great impetus to the manufacturing interests of Akron, and to Mr. King's intelligent activity and financial ability was largely due the advanced position as a maniac- turing point of which Akron is justly proud. All enterprises for the promotion of the city's growth found in Mr. King a liberal supporter and capable worker. He was prominent in securing the extension of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad and in 1871 was elected president of the Valley railroad, the establishing of which he did so much to secure. At the death of his father, Judge Leicester King, Mr. King assumed the management of the large landed estate which his father owned in company with Gen. Simon Perkins, pursuing a policy in the disposal of these lands which materially aided the interests of the growing city.

A member of St. Paul's Episcopal church and for more than 15 years an active superintendent of its Sunday school, he was always found a prominent worker in all charitable and Benevolent enterprises. Mrs. King still resides at Akron, Ohio. Issue:

Va., Sept. 2, 1899. He was one of the founders of the College of the Christian Church at Bethany, West Virginia, and a co-laborer with Alexander Campbell in the building and founding of the great body of Christ's Disciples which it represents. Prof. Pendleton undertook the financial and educational portion of the development of Mr. Campbell's ideas of the method by which the religion of Christ should be taught and without his personality the history of the Christian Church as a great and powerful organization might never have been written. Entering the University of Virginia in 1836 he graduated from that institution taking up the profession of law. In 1845 he was made VicePresident of Bethany College. Mr. Campbell being then President, and from that time forth the responsibility of the institution devolved very largely upon Prof. Pendleton. When he married Miss King he was still a young man with his life's work before him and the loving companionship, the counsel and assistance given him through his long life by Mrs. Pendleton, who for forty-four years stood by his side in joy and in sorrow cannot be overestimated in casting up the final account of the work accomplished by him. He was made President of the College in 1866, which position he held until 1884, when he resigned, being then in his sixty-eighth year and feeling the burden too heavy for him; he became soon after a resident of Eustis, Florida, the beautiful home being occupied by Mrs. Pendleton until her death and which is known as "The Palms." In 1872, being nominated by both Republican and Democratic parties, Prof. Pendleton served in the Constitutional Convention of West Virginia. Mrs. Pendleton died Jany. 17, 1907, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. R. Lamar, in Augusta, Ga.
