Edward A. Taylor, M. D., York Center, Ind., was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, Jan. 8, 1849, a son of Dr. James B. and Sarah P. Taylor.  In 1853 his parents moved to Steuben County, Ind., and located in Angola where, for a short time, his father was engaged in the mercantile business, and then moved to Hamilton, where he engaged in the practice of his profession.  In 1863 they moved to Newville, DeKalb County, and from there to Edgerton, Ohio, where they still live.  Edward A. Taylor pursued his literary studies in the schools of Newville, and afterward attended Fort Wayne College.  He began the study of medicine with his father when nineteen years of age, and in March, 1876, graduated from the Iowa Medical College, Keokuk.  He practiced with his father for a time and then located in York Center, Steuben County.  He is a close student, and keeps himself well informed in the science of his profession.  He is a worthy member of the medical fraternity of Steuben County.  By his careful attention to his patients and readiness to answer all calls he has gained a good practice which is constantly increasing.  Dr. Taylor was married Sept. 22, 1878, to Allie Hathaway, a native of Steuben County, Ind., born March 26, 1855, daughter of Park and Parthenia Hathaway, who moved to Steuben County in 1860.
