OLIVER J. SCOTT was born in Edgar County, Illinois, in 1851, and had, in 1857, the misfortune to lose his father, who had shortly before moved to Union County, Iowa. He then returned with his mother to Illinois, receiving a common school education, and in 1872 entered the Illinois Industrial University, for the purpose of taking a thorough course in mathematics; his health failing in consequence of close confinement in the school room, he finally decided, after a short stay in Illinois, to return to Union County, which he accordingly did, with marked improvement in his health. He was married August 6, 1876, and intends to make this a permanent settlement, as he enjoys better health than in any other section where he has previously lived.
