E. S. Uhl, D. D. S.

Among the capable and successful practicing dentists of northeastern Kansas is Dr. Uhl, who located in Horton in 1888 and has steadily advanced to a foremost place in the ranks of the profession.

A native of Millersburg, Ohio, he was born June 28, 1863, and is a son of I. B. Uhl, who is now residing in Johnson county, KS.  The mother, who bore the maiden name of Maggie Moore, died at the age of thirty-one years, leaving two children, W. A., a physician and surgeon residing in Johnson county, Kansas and E. S., the subject of this review. 

The father was an educator and farmer, supporting his family by following the dual occupation.  Dr. Uhl acquired his education in the public and high schools of Johnson county, Kansas, and at the age of eighteen began teaching.  He began the study of dentistry in Olathe, Kansas, and completed his course in the dental department of the Northwestern University at Chicago, taking the post-graduate course in that institution with the class of 1895.

In 1888 he came to Horton and has enjoyed a steadily increasing patronage.  He keeps well abreast with the most improved methods of dentistry and is a constant student, and his knowledge is indeed comprehensive and accurate.  He is enabled to do the most expert work and his capability insures him creditable success.

In 1886, in Lawrence, Kansas, Dr. Uhl was united in marriage to Miss Frances Osborne, a daughter of W. J. Osborne, who is now pastor of the Methodist church at Rosedale, Kansas.  She is a lady of innate culture and refinement and of superior education, having been a student in Baldwin University.

The Doctor is a member of several fraternal societies, and is an officer in Horton Lodge, No. 326, A. F. & A. M., while his wife belongs to the Eastern Star of the same society.  Both the Doctor and Mrs. Uhl are untiring workers in the Methodist church, in which he has served as trustee and choir leader, while his wife acts as organist.

He has also been a leader of the Horton band for eight years and is a member of the C. R. I. & P. Band, his musical talent well fitting him for his prominent connection with such interests. 

His unfailing courtesy, genial manner and affable disposition have gained him the regard and friendship of those with whom he has met in business, church and social life, and as one of the leading and influential citizens of Horton he well deserves mention in this volume.
