Whitesburg, Letcher County and the Mountains
Our Comity Judge
A Leading Physician
Judge Jno. D. Fitzpatrick is perhaps as w ell known as any man
in Letcher county. He comes from good old Scotch-Irisstock and
ia a nephew of the iate Congressman Tom Fitzpatrick.
Fitzpatrick in early life with none of the world's goods started out
to make a man and for years it was sailing on a eea of credit,
system. There was spirit and energy enough to
oarry the ship and land it into port.
Less than ten years ago he
graduated from the leading medical college at Louisville and entered upon the struggle for practice. He forged to the front. Three
years ago he was elected County Judge and is still serving in that
capacity, meanwhile practicing his profession. He is well fixed
financially, being one of the leading property owners of the town.
A $2,000 soda fountain at the Fitzpatrick & Bent'.ey drug store is
his latest investment.

college of Louisville and has been enjoying a successful practice
since his graduation some six years ago.
He is married and has
an interesting family and beautiful home.
