RICE P. SCOBEE,
a native of Clark County, KY., was born June 23, 1847, and is a son
of Robert and Lucy (Pendleton) Scobee. Robert Scobee, also a native
of Clark County, was a farmer by occupation, a popular citizen in
the community in which he lived, and died in April, 1882, a son of
Robert Scobee, who was a farmer, distiller and miller. Mrs. Lucy
Scobee was born in Clark County, and was a daughter of Rice
Pendleton. Rice P. Scobee was reared on his father's farm and
educated at the common schools. In 1862 he enlisted in the
confederate army, in the company commanded by Capt. Bedford, under
Col. Clay, but during the latter part of the war he was under Gen.
Morgan. He received a gunshot wound at Cynthiana, KY., was taken
prisoner and confined at Camp Douglas for nine months. At the close
of the war he returned to Clark County and resumed farming, in which
occupation he is still engaged, and of late has been devoting
considerable attention to breeding and raising Shorthorn cattle.
March 13, 1868, he married Miss Martha Chorn, of Clark County,
daughter of Josiah and M. (Thompson) Chorn. Five children have been
born to this union, viz: James C., Rezin, Columbus, Robert and
Nannie Lu. Mr. and Mrs. Scobee are strict members of the Primitive
Baptist church, and Mr. Scobee owns 385 acres of fine farming land.
