(Godspeed's History)

Prof. D. B. Borthick is a native of the blue-grass State, born September 10, 1850, son of John Borthick, a farmer. The mother was Ellen Ponds, daughter of William Ponds, of Tennessee. Our subject was reared on a farm, and in his young days secured a good education. At the age of eighteen he entered the University of Kentucky at Lexington where he graduated. After finishing his education he went to Warren County, KY., and commenced teaching school, in which he was very successful. After remaining there some time he went to Simpson County, where he taught ten consecutive years. He then took charge of the Cedar Valley Academy, and is its present principal. He is considered one of the best educators of the county, and has met with the best of success in his undertakings. In 1876 he led to the Hymneal altar Miss Alice Morgan, daughter of J. R. Morgan and a distant relative of Gen. John Morgan.
