Family history[edit | edit source]
Ernest Van Cott was the youngest of the children of Laura and John. He was born December 18, 1875, grew up and married May Siddoway. He became a very good physician-surgeon in the Salt Lake region.
He brought most of his nieces and nephews into the world and was called often in the early days to take care of their sniffles, bouts with measles, pneumonia, and whatever. He liked to fish and hunt and would bring them a duck once in a while to clean, bake, and eat.
He died August 27, 1924 of a heart attack while trying to start his car out on the road. He was returning from a fishing trip.
