JESSE DAVID SEDWICK, D. D. S., a dentist of high standing in Kittanning, has practiced there since his graduation, and has been a resident of the borough since he was eight years old. He was born in Bruin, Butler Co., Pa., Dec. 22, 1888, son of W. G. and Lavina Jane (Weeter) Sedwick.

W. G. Sedwick was born at Callensburg, Clarion Co., Pa., and grew to manhood in that county, receiving his education there. His wife, also a native of Clarion county, was a daughter of David Weeter. Since their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Sedwick have lived in Clarion, Butler and Armstrong counties, their home at present being in Kittanning, where he is engaged as a carpenter and contractor. He is a member of the Free Methodist Church, and politically active in the Republican party but not an office seeker.

As previously stated, Jesse David Sedwick came to Kittanning with his parents when eight years old, and here he attended public school. His higher education was acquired at the University of Pittsburgh, where he took his dental course, graduating in the class of 1909. Returning home he bought out Dr. F. L. Gould, at that time located in the Brown building, but established himself in the Post Office building, where he remained for a year before coming to his present location at No. 211 Market street. His work has proved to be of the highest class and has brought him a steady patronage, and he is also well though of among his professional brethren, being a well-known member of the Armstrong County Dental Association, of which organization he was secretary for two years. Like his father he is a Republican in politics, but he has not taken any active part in such matters.

On Dec. 25, 1911, Doctor Sedwick married Nettie R. Shafer, daughter of Israel Shafer, and they have one child, J. Dwight. They reside at the corner of Queen and High streets, Kittanning.
