Frederick Harris Pendleton was born in Louisa County, VA in 1836; sister Alice Winston Pendleton was born in 1843, also in Louisa County.  The 1850 census shows them living with parents William J. and Catharine M., along with siblings David & Juliana. The 1860 census finds a F.H. Pendleton living in Henderson County, KY, while an 1870 census puts him in Eagle Mills, Iredell, NC, with the occupation of farmer. In 1880, Frederick lived in Chambersburg, Iredell County, NC, still working as a farmer; no wife or children are listed. One notation indicates that he died in Iredell County in 1898 at the age of 62. No record of military service was found; further research is certainly a possibility.

Alice Winston Pendleton meanwhile married in 1870 to Waller Overton, and resided in Kentucky.  She died in 1877 at the young age of 34 in Newport, Campbell County, KY. She is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Campbell County, KY.

A fascinating post-war Virginia CDV combination. Invites further research. Accompanied by internet research material.  In protective sleeve.  [JP/LD]
