The late Dr. Robert H. Sedgwick, whose death was announced in yesterday's Zanesville Courier, was bor in Westmoreland County, Virginia May 2 1808 and while yeat a young man came to Zanesville with his father, the late Rev. George C. Sedgwick, Having recieved a liberal education and possessing remarkable native ability as and educator he accepted a position as a tutor in and Academy conducted by the Elder Mr. Sedgwick, and remained in that position several years. His opportunities for self culture were not allowed to go unimproved, and the young teacher became high in athority in the field of Literature.
Remaining his place in the Academy, young Sedgwick returned to Virginia to enter the misistry, and was called to Pastorate the First Baptist Church in Richmond Virginia, Natrually an orator, a close student and a fearless advocate of what he esteemed the right, the Rev Sedgwick took high rank in his demonination, but in the height of his popularity he was attacked with a disease of the throat, and his physician insisted that he must cease public speaking, The young clergyman reluctantly resigned his pastorate, and concluding to adopt another profession, chose that of Dentistry as offering the best field, and soon mastered the intricacies of the art.
He removed to Cambridge, Ohio in 1849, but that locality not offering expected inducements, he took up his residence in Zanesville, Ohio in the
spring following. He built up a large business here and was regarded as one of the foremost in the profession in this section of the State. For many years he continued to occupy an office but failing health compelled him to retire, and for some years past he has lived a retired life.
Dr. Sedgwick was twice married, first to Miss Ellen Stewart of Cambridge, and after her death to Miss Livian Cox. May 4 1853 by Rev. L G Lenoard at Zanesville Ohio , she was the daughter of the late Ezekiel T. Cox, who survives him.
Four children were born of the first union, Thomas S, now in the department of the Interior at Washington, D.C. , Wiliam H. Postmaster at Granville Ohio, Elizabeth A Jones now residing in Illinois, and Carrie S Murdock, living in California.
His second marriage was blessed with two children, Mrs. George H C Taylor of this city, and the late Miss Bertie Sedgwick.
Dr Sedgwick will be remembered as a man of intellectual power, atrepid,
easy and fluent speaker, who exercised great control over his audiences.
