Fowler, A. H., D. D. S., was born in the town of Ulysses, January 25, 1825, son of Stephen Fowler, a mechanic of that town. The early life of our subject was spent in Trumansburgh, and his first occupation was a short apprenticeship at the tailor's trade. Upon reaching his majority he began the study of dentistry in the office of Dr. Peter Stanbrough, at Farmer Village, where after one year he began the practice of the profession. In the early fifties Dr. Fowler moved to Ithaca, where he became a partner with Dr. Ingersoll. The years of 1856-'57 he spent in Europe, engaged in Paris at his profession. For eight years he practiced in Ithaca, and in 1866 moved to Rochester, returning to Ithaca in 1873, to resume a practice to which he has ever since devoted his attention. Dr. Fowler is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and also of the I. O. O. F. He married, in 1847, Jane A. Du Mont, of Ovid, who died July 3, 1890, leaving two children: Prof. Fred C.
