Joseph H. Grable.

Engaged in the practice of medicine in Wathena, Dr. Grable has been numbered among the most successful representatives of the profession in Doniphan county since 1895.  He was born near Dearborn, Missouri, on the 25th of January, 1869, and is a son of Enoch Grable, who devoted his energies to farming near Dearborn, but was a native of Platte county, Missouri.

His wife bore the maiden name of Mary E. Stanley, and was born and reared near Dearborn.  They became the parents of seven children, three sons and four daughters, and in that household, carefully reared by his parents, Dr. Grable spent his boyhood days, the public schools affording him his opportunities for acquiring a literary education.

Determining to make the practice of medicine his life work, he began preparation for that calling under the direction of Dr. Heddeus, and subsequently matriculated in Ensworth College, at St. Joseph, Missouri, where he pursued a thorough course of study and was graduated in the class of 1895.

He then located in Wathena, where he has since remained with the exception of a few months spent in Willow Brook, Buchanan county, Missouri.  The doctor gives his political support to the Republican party, and is a firm advocate of its principles.  He belongs to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America, and of the latter is medical examiner.

He possesses great energy and this is directed along the lines of professional advancement.  He has been a close student of his profession since determining to make the practice of medicine his chosen calling, and his capability and skill have gained him a liberal patronage, while his successes in practice have won him a leading position among the representatives of the profession through this section of the state.

He is yet a young man, and those who know him feel no hesitation in predicting that his future will be one of continued progress and success.
