George Pendleton was born at Westerly, R. I., 24 July, 1768, and died at Warren, Bradford Co., Pa., 3 April, 1814. In early life he followed the sea and became a successful master mariner. During his residence at Norwich, Conn., he engaged in business as a merchant and outfitter of vessels, and is also said to have been interested in ship-building. The outbreak of the War of 1812 stripped him of most of the means he had accumulated, and he decided to start life anew. Exchanging his property in Norwich for a tract of land in South Warren, Pa., he removed with his entire family to that place, then a wilderness, in December, 1812. Here he made a clearing and built a log house, but was not spared long to continue his activities in the new home. In the second spring after his arrival he was stricken with the fever that so often appears in new settlements; his son, John, also fell a victim to the same disease, and father and son died within a few hours of each other. The father's last moments were harassed by the thought that he " had brought his family into the wilds of a new contry to starve." Although his children endured many hardships after his death, until such time as they were able to provide for themselves, yet they did not come to actual want, the widow and the oldest son, George, Jr., proving equal to the task of maintaining the family, with the assistance of a big-hearted neighbor, Benjamin Buffington.
