George Wilklus Kendall, an American journalist, born in Amherst, now Mount Vernon, N. H., about 1807, died at Oak Spring, near Bowie, Texas, Oct. 21, 1867. He travelled extensively through the southern and western states, working at his trade as a journeyman printer. In 1835 he went to New Orleans, and not long afterward established there, in partnership with Mr. F. A. Lumsden, the " Picayune," the first cheap daily newspaper issued in New Orleans, which under his direction became a leading southern journal. He joined the Santa Fe expedition which in 1841 set out from Austin, Texas, and of which he published an account, embracing his own captivity and sufferings in Mexico, entitled "Narrative of the Texan Santa Fe Expedition " (2 vols. 12mo, 1844). During the Mexican war he accompanied the American forces under Taylor and Scott, and witnessed the chief conflicts during the contest. After its termination he passed two years in Europe, superintending the publication of a costly illustrated work, which appeared in 1851 in a folio volume under the title of "The War between the United States and Mexico, embracing 12 Colored Plates of the Principal Conflicts, by Carl Nebel." In 1852 he established a large grazing farm in Comal co., central Texas, where he resided until his death.
