One of the successful medical practitioners of Rock Island County is the subject of this review, who for fifteen years has followed his profession at Milan with a steadily increasing business. Dr. Eddy is a native of the Empire State, having been born in Madison County, New York, December 17, 1869. He is a son of Homer and Edith S. (Townsend) Eddy. His father was born in Madison County, New York, May 22, 1842, and his mother in Cape May County, New Jersey, May 17, 1846. The parents were married in New Jersey, and after a residence of several years in New York settled permanently on a farm in Cape May County, New Jersey, where they still reside. They are the parents of three children, Lucien C., Arthur and Warner L., of whom this sketch treats. The last named grew to manhood on the farm, obtaining his education in the public schools and under a private tutor. In 1887 he began reading medicine under the instruction of Doctor Julius Way of Cape May Court House, New Jersey. Two years later he took up a regular course at Rush Medical College at Chicago, graduating in March, 1892. After a few months spent in Chicago he came to Milan and has since followed his profession there.
Dr. Eddy was married April 5, 1893, to Miss Alice V. Fellows, the ceremony being performed in Chicago. Mrs. Eddy is the daughter of Jonathan H. and Charlotte A. (Rich) Fellows. She was born July 13, 1865, at Arlington Heights, Illinois. Two children have been born to the couple: Allen T., May 7, 1895, and Edith L., May 5, 1900.
Doctor Eddy is a member of the Rock Island County Medical Society, the Illinois State Medical Society and the American Medical Association. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Church of Milan.
