LORENZO ELLIOTT, was born in Licking county in 1826 and came to Dinsmore township in 1835, married Miss Mary Bolin for his first wife and Mrs. Chamberlain, born in England in 1831, for his second wife, and who is still his helpmeet. He has plowed the land on which Botkins now stands and cradled wheat from its acres. He also laid a mile of ties on the C. H. & D. railway. The station was named after Richard Botkin, who graded three miles of the railway but never lived to see a train on the road.
