William MOTE

Combination Atlas Map of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, Kingman Brothers, 1878

WILLIAM MOTE, Battle Ground
WILLIAM MOTE was born in Darke County, Ohio, May 13, 1835. Through the public schools of his native county he received a fair education, and at the age of 15 years began to teach school during the Winter months, attending school during the Summer, to complete an education so favorably begun. This course he continued until 1854, at which time he began the study of medicine.
On the 25th day of March, 1855, he married Miss CORDELIA TURLY, daughter of WILLIAM TURLY, Esq., of Howard County, Ind. In the Winter of 1857, he attended his first course of medical lectures at the Cincinnati College of Medicine and Surgery, after which, he entered upon the practice of his profession, at Tampico, Howard Co., Ind., being regularly engaged therein until the spring of 1860.
At that time, with a view of retiring from professional life, he formed a copartnership with his brother-in-law, JOHN TURLY, at Galveston, Ind., in mercantile pursuits; but finding this business unsuited to his inclinations, at the end of one year he sold his interest to his partner, and moved, with his wife and two children, to Battle Ground City, Ind.
Here he determined to add more to his education, and, with his wife and two children, entered the college at that place. After a course of eighteen months at that institution, Mr. MOTE attended a second course of medical lectures at the Cincinnati College, upon the completion of which he located at Brookston, White Co., Ind., where he resided five weeks. At the end of that time, he purchased the practice and good-will of Dr. PRESSLY, of Geneseo, where he again engaged in the practice of medicine, remaining thus engaged at this point untill the Fall of 1864.
At that time he returned to Battle Ground, buying out Dr. PRESSLEY [sic] a second time. Here, as elsewhere during his practice, his skill and good judgment won the confidence of all classes, and he speedily acquired an extensive practice. This, however, he was compelled to abandon in the Fall of 1867, owing to impaired health.
Removing to Ann Arbor, Mich., he entered the Law Department of the University, graduating in 1869. Since that time he has been actively engaged in the legal profession, and has attained a fair degree of distinction as a barrister. He was one of the counsel for plaintiff in the well known case of DOWNS vs. ROYSE, Executor of PHILIP ENSMINGER's estate, in which the jury rendered a verdict of $60,000 for plaintiff.
Mr. MOTE is one who, by is strict honesty and integrity, has always gained the friendship of those with whom he has been associated. He has ever been a deep student, and as physician and lawyer his career has been upward and onward.
Three children have crowned the happiness of his married life, as follows: HORACE R., born January 14, 1856; MARY A., August 16, 1857; and ROSS B., April 25, 1862. Of the above named children, the eldest, HORACE is deceased.

Correction by Jean Hehn: At the end of the bio. it lists William's children. Where it says ROSS, it is suppose to be Rosa Belle.
