PAUL L. McKENRICK, assistant cashier and a director of the Merchants' National Bank, Kittanning, is a native of Clearfield county, Pa., a graduate of the Clearfield high school and of the Eastman business college, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. He read law with his father, the late J.F. McKenrick, of Ebensburg, Pa., but preferring a business career was engaged in the coal and coke business in Kentucky and Tennessee for seven years, came to Kittanning in 1899, and since 1900 has been connected with the Merchants' National Bank and identified with the business, municipal and religious interests of the community. Since 1905 he has filled official positions in the First Presbyterian Church and is treasurer of the Kittanning Presbytery. He finds time to indulge his literary tastes and talents and is a contributor (under a nom de plume) to some of the best metropolitan papers and magazines.

 

MRS. PAUL L. (EVA GATES) McKENRICK, secretary of the Armstrong County Sunday School Association, was born and reared in Cambria county, Pa., attended the Kee Mar College for Women at Hagerstown, Md., came to Kittanning with her husband in 1899, and has the honor of being one of the most active participants in the religious affairs of Armstrong county. Her position in the Sunday School Association requires much statistical labor and voluminous correspondence, and the publishers are indebted to her for much of the statistical information of the churches of Armstrong county contained in this history. She is teacher of the Women's Bible class of the First Presbyterian Church, numbering seventy members and one of the largest in the county, and is associated with most of the organizations of her church, as well as several musical societies of Kittanning. However, these interests are secondary to the personal supervision she gives to the training and education of her children.

Mr. and Mrs. McKenrick were married in 1898 and have been blessed with five children: Gerald (deceased), Kathryn, Robert, Ruth and Helen.
