Goodspeed's 1888 History - Dr. D. C. Overton, a physician of Barry Co., MO, was born in Texas in Nov. 1852. He is the oldest child of Robert C. and Amanda (Pace) Overton, natives of TN and GA, respectively. R. C. Overton was born in 1832, and is now residing in Barry Co., MO, engaged in farming. When a young man he went to TX, where he married, coming to Barry Co. when the subject of this sketch was 14 years old. His wife was born in 1837. They are the parents of 12 children, 10 of whom are living. Dr. D. C. Overton attended the common schools of Barry Co. and Clark's Academy at Berryville, AR, graduating from the latter in 1871. Returning home he studied medicine privately for 2 years, after which he entered the University of Nashville, in which he completed his literary education. He next entered the Nashville University of Medicine, from which he received the degree of M. D. in 1874. He then entered the Vanderbilt University of Medicine at Nashville, from which he also took the degree of M. D. in 1875, at which time the first course of lectures delivered in this institution was completed. After having thus finished his professional education, he returned to his home in Barry Co. and practiced medicine for 2 years. April 8, 1877, Dr. Overton was united in marriage with Louiza Emma Lecompte, who was born in Macon Co., MO in 1857 and who is of French origin. He then went to TX, remaining in the eastern part of that State, and practiced his profession for 6 years, when he came back to Barry Co. To our subject have been born 4 children, 2 deceased, unnamed, and 2 living, Arabel and Rollin. Politically Dr. Overton is a Democrat. The family inclination seems to tend toward the medical profession, the subject having 2 brothers and 3 uncles who are physicians.
