CHARLES TINSLEY BRONAUGH M. D.
Source: History of Montgomery County, Indiana, New Ross, P. 1128
The writer of biography dealing in the personal history of men engaged in the various affairs of everyday life, occasionally finds a subject whose record commands exceptional interest and admiration and especially is this true when he has achieved more than ordinary success or made his influence felt as a leader of thought and a benefactor of his kind. Dr. Charles Tinsley Bronaugh of New Ross, Montgomery County, is eminently of that class who earn the indisputable right to rank in the van of the army of progressive men by reason of a long and strenuous career devoted to the good of his fellows, to the alleviation of their physical sufferings, he occupies a position of wide influence and has made name during his more than a quarter of a century of practice in Walnut Township which will long live in the hearts of the people. During the latter decades of the period of development of this section he has been not only a successful practitioner, but has aided in whatever way possible for the betterment of the condition of the people, and his name has become a house hold work throughout the locality. Dr. Bronaugh was born in Gerard County, Kentucky, March 19, 1854. He is a son of Robert N. and Mary (Taylor) Bronaugh. The father was born in1819 in Hendricks County, Indiana, and there also, in the same year, the mother was born. They both grew to maturity in their native county and received common school educations, and there they were married, subsequently removing to Kentucky where they resided until 1863 when they moved back to Lizton, Hendricks County, where they spent the rest of their lives. Their family consisted of seven children, namely; Elizabeth C. is the eldest; Nancy, George T., are both deceased; Charles T., of this review; Mary V., John W. are both deceased; James is the youngest. Dr. Bronaugh was educated in the common schools of Hendricks County, and early in life he determined upon a medial career and began to prepare for the same, subsequently entering the Indiana College of Medicine at Indianapolis from which he was graduated with the class of 1884, and he at once began practicing at the village of New Ross, Montgomery County, remaining here continuously to the present time, building up a very extensive and lucrative practice during this period of nearly thirty years. The doctor was married in 1889 to Sadie Everson, daughter of James K. And Hannah Everson. Hers is one of the oldest and best known families of the county. The death of Mrs. Bronaugh occurred in 1890, without issue. Politically, Dr. Bronaugh is a Democrat. He held the office of County Coroner for two terms in a manner that reflected much credit upon himself and to the eminent satisfaction of all concerned. Fraternally, he belongs to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Rebekahs.--kbz
