Businessman, Presbyterian Elder, member of the Union Civil War Sanitary Commission. Born in Cincinnati, he was a member of the prominent Pendleton family. He graduated from Woodward High School and then traveled to Europe with Dr. Nathaniel Foster. In 1848, he worked in the cordage trade with Charles B. Foote, and then went into the wholesale business with his brother-in-law, Robert B. Bowler. Bowler left the business to Pendleton when he became president of a railroad company, and the wholesale firm became the Pendleton, Swift, and Company. During the Civil War, he aided the Union Army as a member of the Sanitary Commission. After the war, in 1866, Pendleton took his family to Europe for four years, spending most of his time in Paris. His family fled France in 1870 during the onset of the Franco Prussian War. He returned to Cincinnati and became president of the Commercial Bank. He was appointed by Mayor S.S. Davis as president of the Board of Park Commissioners in 1871. He was also an active member of the Presbyterian Church and a trustee of the Cincinnati Art Museum. His father, Nathaniel Greene Pendleton, was a United States Congressman and a War of 1812 Officer. His grandfather, Nathaniel Pendleton, was a Revolutionary War Officer and a Federal Judge. His grandfather, Jesse Hunt, was a Revolutionary War Veteran and an early pioneer of Ohio. His brother, George Hunt Pendleton, was a United States Senator, Congressman, and Governor of Ohio.
