Spencer County

O. P. Tichenor was born in Nelson County, Kentucky, July 28, 1830, the sixth of a family of seven children born to Thomas and Hannah (Lucas) Tichenor. Thomas was born in New Jersey, immigrated to Kentucky in 1790, with his parents, and settled in Nelson County. He was engaged in agricultural pursuits, saw milling and blacksmithing, was a soldier in the War of 1812, and a son of Daniel Tichenor. Our subject left his native county when he was in the twenty-fourth year of his age, and moved to Spencer County. He is one of the largest and most successful farmers in Spencer County. He is also extensively interested in saw mills, threshing machines and clover hullers. He was elected magistrate in 1875, which office he still holds, serving now on his fourth term, and for the past sixteen years has been a railroad sinking fund commissioner. He has also been land processioner for a number of years. He married, January 29, 1857, Susan P. Bennett, of Spencer County, daughter of Samuel and Isabella (Hardesty) Bennett. Nine children were born to this union, seven living: Thomas B., Anna E., Mattie C. Milligan, Mary (who is attending school in Taylorsville), Lillie K., Ollie J. and Joseph C. Mr. Tichenor, his wife and four daughters are members of the Baptist Church, and he has been for forty-three years. He is a Master Mason in good standing.
