"J. HERVEY PENDLETON, a lifelong resident and one of the oldest farmers of Searsport, was born here, January 13, 1819, a son of GREEN  and ANN (Park) PENDLETON. His grandfather, PELEG PENDLETON, who was a native of Stonington, Conn., after spending his early life on the sea, came to Searsport, and there took up a tract of land.  There were then but few settlers here and practically no roads, the Indians still retaining possession.  He came first in the fall of the year with one son, whom he left.  On his return in the spring the son was missing, and was never afterward heard from.  He settled on the shore at what is known as the old Pendleton homestead, and lived there the rest of his days.  To him and Ann (Park) Pendleton, his wife, seven children were born.  Four of his sons - Green, William, Joseph, and Phineas - married and had families.  He lived to the age of seventy-seven years.

"Green Pendleton, the eldest of the four sons of Peleg, above named, was but ten years old when brought from Stonington to Searsport by his parents. After availing himself of such educational privileges as the district school of that time afforded, he shipped as a hand on a coasting-vessel.  Afterward he settled on the farm now owned and occupied by his son, where he lived until his death, when eighty-eight years of age.  He was a member of the Congregational church.  His wife, Ann, was a daughter of John Park, of Connecticut.  They had nine children, respectively named: Nancy, Abigail, Catherine, Green, John, Benjamin, Charles, Christopher, and J. Hervey.  The mother was forty-two years old when she died.

"J. Hervey Pendleton, the youngest and only surviving child of his parents, has always lived on the old homestead farm, conforming to his father's wish in this, his older brothers having all chosen a seafaring life.  After completing his education he assisted his father in the work of the farm, and at his parents' death succeeded to the estate.  He served in the Aroostook War.  First a Whig and later a Republican, he cast his first Presidential vote for William Henry Harrison in 1840.  On December 12, 1841, Mr. Pendleton was joined in marriage with Esther Pendleton, the daughter of Phineas and Nancy (Gilmore) Pendleton.  Her father died in his ninety-third year, and her mother was eighty-four years old at the time of her death.  J. Hervey Pendleton and his wife have two sons and two daughters; namely, Emily J., Frank I., James N., and Prudence G.  

"Emily J., the widow of O. U. Beach, has five children - James H., Frank I., E. Prudence, George A., and Esther M.  Frank I. married Ella Erskine, who died leaving him with one son, Irving E.; James married Florence Ferguson, of Hampden.

"Prudence is the wife of Selwin McGilvey, and has four children - Katherine W., Hervey P., Wilfred N., and Olivia M. "
