Judge James Ellison

Judge James Ellison was born at Monticello, Mo., July 12, 1850, the sixth child and third son of Judge James Ellison of the Northeast Circuit Court of the State.  He went to school first at Christian University, Canton, Mo., and later to Christian Brothers' College in St. Louis.  He began the practice of law at Kirksville, Mo., at eighteen years of age with his father, Andrew Ellison, afterwards judge of that circuit for twenty-two years.  

   In 1884 Judge Ellison was a Cleveland elector, and in the fall of that year was appointed Judge of Kansas City Court of Appeals for four years.  He was elected in 1888 for a term of eight years, and in 1896 was again elected for a term of twelve years.

     Judge Ellison has rendered decisions in many of the most important cases in the State.
