Edmond B. MOSHER M.D. was born on Jun 30, 1837 in Lincoln Twnshp, Morrow Co., Ohio.12,13 Edmond Mosher was know in the family as "Uncle Doc".

According to the 20th Century History of Delaware County, he "read medicine" and appearantly worked as a physician in Morrow Co. In 1861 at the begining of the Civil War, he enlisted in the 15 OVI. Was eventually made the regimental surgeon, and his brother Theodore (Teddy) was a hospital steward. These ranks were apparently achieved toward the end of the war, as the enlistment record shows them both enlisted as privates in Company C of the 15th OVI, and even though Edmond was a physician before the war he is not listed as part of the division's medical staff.

In the enlistment records Edmond is listed as the father of Charles H. Mosher (Charles was actually his brother). When Charles was allowed to enlist in 1864 he was only 15 years old and Edmond was 26 or 27 years old, and a battle worn regimantal physician - he might well have passed for 15 year old Charles' father.

Edmond as a part of the 15th OVI saw much bitter fighting, serving with Grant and Sherman in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama, and with Sherman on his march from "Atlanta to the sea" in the Carolinas.

After the Civil War, Edmond returned to Morrow County and was a doctor practicing in Olive Green in Morrow County, later moving to Sunbury, then to Deleware. By 1892, he was living in Columbus. His practice continued in each of these locations.

In Columbus his office was attached to the side of his home. His home was at 743 Oak street, and the office was at 745 Oak Street according to the Columbus city directory. The office was simply a room added onto the side of his house that provided a seperate door. The house is still there in Columbus today (1996).

His wife Mary was a nurse-attendant at an "asylum" presumably the Ohio State Hospitoal.
Also living with them were two of his four daughters, Myrtle and Grace M. Mosher.

Living just down the street from Edmond, was Elmore. He lived at 1309 Oak Street where he ran a business as a stone mason.

By 1913, Edmond's wife Mary was living with Elmore. Presumably, Edmond had died.

Gloria Mosher Merchant remembers being told that "Uncle Doc" was the doctor who doctored her Aunt Pansy when she was burned as a little girl. When Pansy was about 3 years old she was playing with her older brothers who were smoking and somehow she was caught on fire. She was burned badly and give up for dead by other doctors. Uncle Doc, however doctored her back to health. According to Gloria, Aunt Pansy lost her breasts to the damages of the fire.
