Biography


1886 Portrait & Biographical Album of Knox Co., IL

HOUSTON P. TAIT, farmer, was born in Knox County, June 29, 1841, and is the son of William and Mary A. (McDowell) Tait. They are natives of Scotland, and came to America in 1839, settling on section 16, of Copley Township, where he purchased a farm. There they lived until his death, which took place in 1842, and to them were born four children, all sons—John, William F., Peter G., and Houston P. All served as soldiers in the Civil War. John and Peter G. were killed in the army. John was mortally wounded at the battle of New Hope Church, May 27, 1864, and died from his injuries the 19th of June of the same year. Peter G. was killed the second day of the battle of Nashville, on the 16th day of December 1864. They were brought home and buried side by side in the cemetery on section 14 of Copley Township, and every year their graves are strewn with the flowers of loving remembrance. “Rest in peace, O gallant dead.”

Mr. Tait, of this writing, grew up on a farm, working and attending the district school and also a select school at Victoria, until he was 21 years of age. He then, Aug. 6, 1862, enlisted and served until July 16, 1865. He fought at the battle of Stone River, was in the general field hospital at Murfreesboro for four months. He was then exchanged to Louisville and was retained in the Veteran Reserve Corps, receiving an honorable discharge at the close of the war. After it closed he returned to Illinois, and in 1867 purchased a farm on section 10, of Copley Township. It included 80 acres, and here he lived until 1882, when he sold out and purchased his present home, consisting of 100 acres.

He was married in 1867 to Miss Mary E. Levalley, a native of Knox County, who was born Dec. 20, 1846. Her parents were Christopher H. and Harriet (Gaines) Levalley, natives of New York. Annie J. is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Tait. He is a Republican in politics and holds many offices in the neighborhood. With his wife, he belongs to the Presbyterian Church.
