Andrew T. Steele (A. T. STEELE, M. D.), physician and surgeon, Ashmore, is a native of Illinois. He was born in Clark Co. June 28, 1844. He is a son of Oliver P. Steele, a native of the city of Philadelphia, who came to Clark Co. in 1837, where he resided till his death, which occurred Oct. 2, 1872. His mother was Nancy K. Twilley, who was born in Kentucky, and came to Illinois with him in 1837.

Dr. Steele was raised on the farm. In 1863, he enlisted in Co. C, 62d 111. Vols., serving til Feb. 1865. He participated in the battles of Little Rock, Pine Bluffs and Fort Smith, Ark., and Fort Gibson, Indian Territory.

Returning from the war, he spent one year in farming, and, in 1867, entered Westfield College, where he remained two years.

During the winter of 1869-70, he attended lectures in Rush Medical College, Chicago, reading medicine the following summer in the office of Dr. Van Dyke, in Ashmore. In the fall of 1871, he returned to the college in Chicago, but the buildings of that institution being destroyed in the great fire in that city, he went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and there pursued his second course in medicine. He began practice as a physician in Ashmore in 1872, and, in the fall of 1874, returned to Rush Medical College, where he graduated and received the degree of M. D. in February 1875.
