    • BIOGRAPHY

      E. C. Royston, physician and surgeon, Huntingdale, was born in Caroline County, Virginia, March 4, 1830, being a son of Thomas and Susanna (Thornton) Royston, natives of Virginia. The subject of this sketch was the seventh of a family of twelve children. In November, 1839, his parents removed to Marion County, Missouri, where his mother died in 1841. The same year his father came to Henry County, Missouri. E. C. received his education in the common schools of Missouri, and when nineteen years old he began the study of medicine with Dr. R. T. Thornton, of Jackson County, Missouri. He read with him until 1850; then visited California and followed mining until 1852, when he returned to Missouri. He clerked in a store in Clinton until March, 1853, and at that time again took up the study of medicine in the office of Dr. Salmon. He continued this until 1854, when he entered the St. Louis Medical College. In March, 1855, he located southwest of Clinton and practiced until November of the same year, when he settled near Huntingdale. In 1868 he moved into that place. In October, 1872, he returned to the St. Louis Medical College, and was graduated in March, 1873. The doctor has a very fine frame residence here, built in 1878 at a cost of $2,000. He was assistant surgeon in the Missouri State Guard for six months during the war and surgeon in the First Regiment of Missouri Rovers for twelve months. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. July 24, 1854, Dr. Royston was married to Mrs. Eliza J. Drake, a daughter of F. A. and Sallie (McCarty) Pernell.
