Charles  A. Tindall

          Charles A. Tindall, M. D., the subject of this sketch, is a native of Shelby County, Indiana, and son of  Job D. and Susan (Warner) Tindall,  the father born in Kentucky, and the mother in Ohio.  This family came to this county as early as the year 1837 and settled on a farm near the City of Shelbyville.  Dr. Tindall's early life was spent on his father's farm, and in the common schools he received the elements of a good English education.  He subsequently attended the Central Normal School at Danville one year, and in 1885, began the study of medicine, in which, by diligent application, he soon made commendable progress.  In order to more thoroughly prepare himself for the duties of his profession, he subsequently entered the Eclectic Medical Institute of Cincinnati, where he pursued his studies three, terms, and from which he graduated June, 1887.  Having thus finished his medical education, the Doctor began the active practice of his profession in Shelbyville where he has already won a conspicuous place among the successful medical men of the city.  He is a diligent student, thoroughly devoted to his profession, and has before him a future of great promise. Politically, he votes the Republican ticket, but is in no sense of the word a partisan.
