Among the early physicians to practice medicine in this area was Dr. Washington Thompson Sandidge, a native of Green County, Kentucky. Born in 1830, he was a son of Dabney Sandidge and Dolly Thompson Sandidge, who came to Green County from Albamarle, County, Virginia.

They were the parents of four children, and according to old family stories, two of their sons, Washington and his brother Pleasant never got along. They fought continuously until their frustrated parents finally decided to separate the two. After much consideration Washington was sent to medical school and his brother Pleasant to law school!
