    S. D. HARTMAN, M. D.

    S. D. HARTMAN, M. D., who has been successfully engaged in the practice of medicine at Tippecanoe City for the past thirty-six years, occupies a very prominent position in his profession in Miami County. He was born in this city August 14, 1846, and is a son of Dr. A. B. and Delilah (Campbell) Hartman.

    Dr. Hartman's father was a native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and of German parentage. He was twice married, one child surviving his first wife. He married (second) Delilah Campbell, a most capable woman, and her eight children inherited many of her natural gifts. Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Hartman came to Ohio and located at Tippecanoe City, then a mere village, in 1837.

    S. D. Hartman obtained his education in the schools of his native place. It is probable that from boyhood he cherished the hope of a medical career, but before doing more than desultory reading along the lines of his future profession, he had acquired a practical knowledge of milling and later of telegraphy. During a period of twenty months, when he was employed as operator in the telegraph office at Troy, he earned sufficient funds to enable him to take the winter course of medical lectures at Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1869-70. Upon his return he continued his studies under his father, to whom he rendered office assistance, and in September, 1871, he returned to Ann Arbor and completed his course. From March to September, 1865, Dr. Hartman served in the Federal army during the Civil War as a member of, the One Hundred and Ninety-sixth Regiment, O. V. I.

    Dr. Hartman is widely known and his record has been such as to give his fellow citizens confidence in his skill as a physician and in his character as a man. He is a member of all the local medical organizations, keeps in close touch with the progress of his profession, and makes use of all advanced methods of treatment that have stood practical tests. In 1875 he was married to Miss Laura Byrkett. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and belongs fraternally to the Masons and Odd Fellows.
