1897 Biography - John Foote

Foote, John, M. D. - Among the leading representatives of the profession we find Dr. John Foote who has been in practice for nearly fifty years, and for thirty-two years a practitioner of Lockport. He was born in the town of Greenwich, Washington county, N. Y., May 22, 1828. His parents removed to Niagara county in 1832, where he attended the public schools. In 1848 he began the study of medicine in the office of Dr. Peter P. Murphy of Royalton, and the followiug year entered the Buffalo University, medical department. and was graduated from that institution in 1851. He then began the practice of his profession at Pekin, Niagara county, where he remained until 1865, when he removed to Lockport and has since been engaged in the practice of his chosen profession. Dr. Foote is a member of the Niagara County Medical Society, of which he has been treasurer for twenty years; he also served on the Board of Medical Examiners for a number of years. By slow degrees he has built up his present large and growing practice, and has a right to feel proud of his honorable and successful career.
