|ALBERT MARSHALL CLINKSCALES.|
The subject of this sketch was born April 15, 1855, at Starrville, Smith County, Texas, third son of John B. Clinkscales (once a rich planter in South Carolina) and Jane Kay. Albert obtained his literary education at the Academy of Starrville, and commenced the study in medicine with Dr. W. H. Clement, of Mount Carmel, Tex., taking his first course in medicine at the Louisville Medical College, Kentucky. Returning to his medical preceptor, he prac tised with him until the following fall, going from thence to Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, where he received his diploma March 10, 1877. He then returned to Texas and practised his profession for nine years. Moving to Hubbard City, he there practised six years, and finally in May, 1891, located in Vinita, Cherokee Nation, where, besides his profession, he engaged in stock-raising and agriculture, which he still continues. In November, 1883, he married Miss Annie DuPree, daughter of Dr. W. J. DuPree and Charlotte Bell (daughter of John Bell, descendant of the Bell family of revolutionary days and the Black Hawk War). By this marriage Dr. Clinkscales had four children, two of whom are living—Lewis D., born September 12, 1884, and Lucille, born March 18, 1891. Mr. Clinkscales is a lady of refinement and superior education. The doctor is a gentleman of good appearance, courteous and affable and possessed of a liberal education, while as a physician he ranks among the highest in his profession. Dr. Clinkscales is at present somewhat extensively engaged in stock and agricultural pursuits, and owns a neat residence together with other property in Vinita.
