DR. WILLIAM STANTON, a distinguished and honored citizen of Steubenville, Ohio, is a native of county Tyrone, Ireland. He graduated from the medical university of Edinburgh, Scotland and in 1832 he emigrated to America. In 1834 he located at Steubenville, where he has resided ever since. There he at once began his profession, and for more than half a century he was actively and successfully engaged in the practice of medicine and surgery. His practice, being large, was also very lucrative, and it enabled him to accumulate much wealth which he is now permitted to enjoy, and to the management of which the greater part of his attention is now given. He has not only demonstrated superior skill as a physician but has also shown himself to possess much ability as a financier, being now one of the most substantial men of Steubenville. He is a member of the Episcopal church, and in politics is a republican. He is also a member of the Masonic fraternity, in which he has attained the degree of Knight Templar. Dr. Stanton is one of Steubenville's worthiest and most distinguished citizens, and wherever he is known he commends universal respect and esteem.
