Birth: May 31, 1858
Coffey County
Kansas, USA
Death: Jan. 16, 1924
Taylor County
Iowa, USA

Occupation: medical doctor, general practice

Dr. A.E. King arrived in Taylor county in 1860, when but two years of age, and passed the years of his boyhood and youth in Jefferson township, acquiring his early education in the common schools of that locality. Later he decided to make the medical profession his life work and consequently pursued a course of study in a medical college in Keokuk, Iowa, from which he was graduated with the class of 1881. He immediately opened an office for practice in Redding, Ringgold county, where he remained until 1894, in which year he came to Blockton, where he has since been engaged in the general practice of medicine, with the exception of a few years spent in further study. He attended the Hospital College of Medicine at Louisville, Kentucky, from which he was graduated in 1894, while he also pursued a post-graduate course at the Chicago Polyclinic in 1908. He is thus well equipped for the practice of his profession and is ranked among the able physicians of Taylor county, being well known as one of the oldest practitioners of Blockton and that locality, his circle of acquaintances, friends and patrons extending for a radius of fifty miles. He was built up a very large practice, his extensive patronage coming to him as an expression of the trust and confidence reposed in him by the general public. He is constantly broadening his knowledge by study and research, recognizing fully the obligations that fall upon the physician, and he keeps abreast of the progress being made in the medical world through his membership in the State Medical Association, the Missouri Valley Medical Association, and the Taylor County Medical Society. He is often called upon to prepare articles to be read before these assemblies. He conducted a drug store in Blockton and was very successful in this undertaking, but after five or six years was compelled to withdraw from that business to devote his entire time and energies to his constantly growing private practice. Dr. King has been married twice. In 1878 he wedded Miss Ida May Castor, a native of Missouri, where she was reared. She passed away February 4, 1891, leaving, besides her husband to mourn her loss, one son, Dr. T.W. King, a practicing physician of Meloy, Iowa. They also lost one son, Joseph D., who died at the age of three years. In November, 1893, Dr. King was united in marriage to Lydia J. Shuff, a resident of Worth county, Missouri, and unto them were born three children, but the eldest, Alberta Belle, died at the age of two years. The others are Cecil Valentine and Ruth Madeline. The family reside in a beautiful home in Blockton, which has just been completed by Dr. King and is one of the fine, modern residences of this city.
