  HARRY S. ILIFF.    Harry S. Iliff was born on July 12, 1873, at Cedarville, Greene county, Ohio, and for thirty-one years he dwelt in the place which had been the home of his parents and grandparents before him; his parental grandfather, Wesley Iliff, having been a pioneer of Greene county, Ohio.  Mr. Iliff was also a pioneer in the manufacture of lime, this being an important industry in that section.
     William H. Iliff was a son of Wesley Iliff, the pioneer.  He became interested in the contracting business and remained in that calling for several years.  He chose as his life partner Margaret Louise Small, who was also a native of Greene county, Ohio, as were her parnts.  William H. Iliff did in 1911.  His wife still lives in Greene county, Ohio.  Five of the seven children that were born to them, grew to maturity and are now living, namely: Mrs. J. G. McCorkin, Cedarville, Ohio; W. C., of Cedarville Ohio; Rev. W. W., of Brookline, Massachusetts, who is pastor of the Presbyterian church; Mrs. Rev. William Graham, Yellow Springs, Ohio, and Harry S., of London.
     Harry S. Iliff received his education in the Cedarville high school and the Cedarville College.  He began his business career as a cement contractor and the town of London bears evidence of his ability in this line, as nearly all the sidewalks of the town were laid by him.  He is now engaged in building steel bridges, principally railroad work.
     On Jan. 1, 1902, Harry S. Iliff was married to Viola Eyler, of Hillsboro, Highland county, Ohio.  To them have been born four children, Howard, Paul, Mary and RichardMr. Iliff removed to London in September, 1904, where he is now a member of the London Club and a sincere worker in the Presbyterian church.  He is also a member of the Masonic order and Sons of Veterans.
     Among those brave young Americans who responded so nobly to their country's call, during her trouble with Spain, none reported for service with more patriotic enthusiasm than Mr. Iliff, who served in Company A, of the Second United States Volunteer Engineers, which were among the first troops to arrive in Havana, Cuba.
