The 1880 History of Poweshiek County Iowa

Sugar Creek township

Page 689-0

PALMER, J. H. --Physician and surgeon in Searsboro. Was born in Des Moines county, Iowa, in the year 1849, and resided in that county until he was about eighteen years of age, when he entered college at Mt. Pleasant, Henry county, where he remained about two years. He then went to Oskaloosa and commenced the study of medicine. He remained two years under the tutorship of Dr. D. A. Hoffman; during the two years above mentioned, he attended medical lectures at the Ohio Medical College, where he graduated with honor in the year 1874. Immediately after graduation, he commenced the practice of medicine at Searsboro, where he still continues to practice. He has been the owner of a drug store in this place, which he has now sold to his brother-in-law. He has a nice residence property on the main street in Searsboro, and a fine practice in his profession; is a social and intelligent gentleman and a fine physician, and we bespeak for him his share of the practice wherever he may pitch his professional tent.
