Medical Milestones in Cole County, Missouri by Joseph S. Summers, Jr., M.D.

John H. Edwards was born in 1806. He was Dr. Rufus Abbot's partner in 1839, and in 1867 his partner was Dr. L. M. Dixon.

On January 5, 1876, the following article appeared in the Peoples Tribune:

DEATH OF DR. JOHN H. EDWARDS:

Dr. Tennessee Mathews received a dispatch from Mrs. F.M. Dixon announcing the death of her father, Dr. John H. Edwards, at 10 o'clock a.m. New Year's Day. It has been known here for a month or more that Dr. Edwards' sickness was of such a character as to preclude all hopes of his recovery. The announcement, therefore, is not a surprise, but is, none the less. He had many warm personal friends in this city amongst those who knew him when he lived here, whose hearts will be sorrowful when they read this notice. He was a resident of this city for twenty-five years, or more; was a most popular and successful physician, had a large and lucrative practice, and by his gentle demeanor and kind attention to all whom he was called to visit professionally, he became personally as well as professionally a universal favorite in the circle of his practice. He was a plain, unassuming man, caring nothing for show and parade.

Dr. Edwards was buried in the Woodland Cemetery in Jefferson City.
