Samuel  S. Banta

            Samuel S. Banta, A. B., D. C., graduated with honors from York College, York, Nebraska, June 9, 1909, and from the Universal Chiropractic College at Davenport, Iowa, June 30, 1911, and is conducting a successful practice in Winchester, making a specialty of disease of the spine. In this special line of work he ranks with the finest and most noted experts of the west. His treatment of cases, considered hopeless or incurable, approaches the miraculous.
            Dr. Banta was born at Oquawka, Illinois, and is the son of John C. and Elizabeth (Anderson) Banta. He is one of three children, Norman Banta, a brother died several years ago and left a widow and one child. He lived at Great Falls, Montana, and was a road master for the Great Northern. Bertha married Charles Sebur, a farmer of Oquawka, Illinois, and has two children.
            The ancestors of Dr. Banta came from Holland to this country in 1858 and settled in New Amsterdam. These were on his father's side. His mother is of Irish descent, her father being a Missourian. She, however, was born in Pennsylvania and went to Missouri when a child. She still survives. Dr. Banta's father died in York, Nebraska, March 11, 1901. The doctor is a member of the Odd Fellows and of the United Brethren church, and in both lodge and church work is an earnest participant. Not only as a physician does he take high rank, but as a citizen, all things pertaining to the advancement of Winchester and Randolph county receiving his heartiest endorsement and support. He is one of those well-balanced and progressive men who believe in the development of whatever enterprise they are associated with.
