Dr. George Warrender, a prominent veterinary surgeon of Augusta, Kans. is a Butler county pioneer in his profession, and comes from a family of veterinary surgeons of three generations, his father and grandfather having been veterinary surgeons of prominence. Dr. Warrender was born at Garbetsville, N. Y., in 1851 and is a son of Dr. Robert and Anna (Pearson) Warrender, both natives of England.

Dr. Warrender, of this review, was born about three weeks after his parents came to America and is one of a family of four, as follows: Mary, married William Layman, now deceased; George, the subject of this sketch; Robert, lives at Douglass, Kans.; and Jane, married William Henry Thornley, and they live in Iowa. The Warrender family removed from New York to Illinois, settling in Cass county, when George was a child. Here he was reared on a farm, attended the public schools and later studied veterinary surgery. He practiced his profession in Illinois until 1885, when he came to Kansas, settling near Douglass, where he engaged in the practice of his profession, and at the same time was interested in farming, until 1904, when he located at Augusta, and has since devoted himself exclusively to the practice of his profession.

Dr. Warrender has been uniformly successful in his professional work and is recognized as the leading veterinary surgeon of Butler county. He is not only well known in Butler county, but has a State wide reputation among extensive stock men and his fellow practitioners.

Dr. George Warrender was united in marriage at Mason City, Ill. in 1870 to Miss Sarah A. McCluggage, and five children were born to this union, three of whom are living, as follows: James O., married Ella Boucher, and lives seven miles west of Augusta; Charles, married Myrtle Johnson and lives near Mulvane, Kans., and Leota, a successful Butler county teacher, resides with her parents.
