Mr. Pendleton was a member of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce. He was also a member of the Staten Island Club of St. George, and was one of the founders of the New-York Electrical Society. He was a Republican. Mr. Pendleton owned much property on Staten Island, the Hampton House in Boston, and had a large orange grove in Florida. The funeral will be held tomorrow at his home.
