Elliott M.D., John T. city health officer of Rhinelander, who has been a resident of this city for the past 18 years, was born in Seaforth, Province of Ontario, Canada, Aug. 4, 1871, son of William and Margaret (RENNELSON) ELLIOTT. The father was born at Hieck, near Edinburgh, Scotland, the mother being a native of Canada, in which country they were married. William ELLIOTT, who was an expert accountant, was for 33 years city clerk of Seaforth, Canada. Both parents are now deceased. John T. ELLIOTT acquired his general education in the public schools of Seaforth, being graduated from the high school in the class of 1900. Having made up his mind to become a physician, in 1896 he entered the Trinity Medical College at Toronto, where, having passed a satisfactory examination, he was presented with the degree of M.D. as a member of the graduation class of 1900. He as once came to the States and began the practice of his profession at Cylon, St. Croix County, Wis., where he remained for five years, at the end of that time, or in 1905, coming to Rhinelander. Here he engaged offices in the T. C. Wood block, which he occupied for 12 years, then moving to his present location at No. 16 1/2 W. Davenport Street. He has built up an extensive practice both in the city and in the surrounding country, has a high standing in his profession and enjoys wide social popularity. As a physician and surgeon he is still a close student, keeping in touch with modern scientific discovery, and is a member of the Oneida, Vilas and Forest Counties Medical Society and the Wisconsin State Medical Society. As health officer of the city of Rhinelander he has served ten years out of the last 12 and under four different mayors. He is also medical examiner of several fraternal lodges, of which is is a member, including the Eagles , the Knighted Foresters, the Modern Woodmen of America and the Canadian Order of Foresters. On Nov. 2, 1910, Dr. ELLIOTT was married at Toronto, Canada, to Mary E. NICHOLSON, of that city. The issue of this marriage is one son, John Craig, who was born Sept. 4, 1913 and is now a pupil in the public schools. The Doctor and his family have a pleasant home at No. 310 Lincoln Street. They attend the Congregational Church.
