ANDREW A. ELLIOTT, a prominent young physician of Steubenville, was born in Columbiana county, Ohio, October 6, 1853. He is the son of John Elliott, who was born in Scotland in 1818. In early manhood his father accompanied his parents to America, and located with them in Beaver county, Penn., where shortly afterward they removed to Athens county, Ohio, where they spent the remainder of their lives. John, about that time, made his permanent residence in Columbiana county, Ohio where he was married t Catharine Adams, who was born in Ireland about 1824. He was a teacher by profession and was so engaged for twenty-seven consecutive years, mostly in Columbiana county. He also gave much attention to farming during his vacations and dealt extensively in live stock. He died April 29, 1870. When Catharine, the mother of our subject was thirteen years of age, she accompanied her mother to America, and took up her residence with an uncle in Columbiana county, Ohio. She bore to her husband six children, of whom three are now living. Her home is at Wellsville, Ohio. Dr. Elliott, the fourth of the children mentioned, was reared to manhood on a farm in his native county. He attended a district school until he reached the age of seventeen, after which he was a student for a few months in an academy at Beaver, Penn. He then entered the National Normal school of Lebanon, Ohio, which he attended three years, graduating in 1878. Returning home, he entered upon the study of medicine with Dr. J. W. Hammond, of Wellsville. During the winters of 1879-80 and 1880-81 he was a student in the medical department of the university of the City of New York, graduating in March 1881. He at once entered upon his professional career at Steubenville. Dr. Elliott was married September 5, 1883, to Rachel S., only daughter of James Gallagher, a distinguished citizen of Steubenville. Dr. Elliott and wife are members of the Episcopal church. Politically he is a republican. Dr. Elliott has shown himself to possess much skill in the practice of medicine and surgery, and, though young, he already occupies a creditable rank among the leading physicians of southeastern Ohio. He is a member of the Jefferson County Medical society and of the Association of the Surgeons to the Pennsylvania Railway company. He is now the surgeon of that company at Steubenville.
