"W. E. UHL was born in Carroll County, Indiana, October 25, 1848, and is the only survivor of three children born to PETER and EMMA (SAUNDERS) UHL, natives of Virginia and England. PETER UHL is a farmer, and is now living in Fulton County, Indiana. W. E. UHL was quite liberally educated, and in his earlier days was a school teacher. His mother died in 1853, and he was that year brought to this county (White County, Indiana) by his grandparents, WILLIAM and MATILDA SAUNDERS. In 1857, however, he returned to his father in Fulton County. In 1870, he came to Monticello and entered the law office of A. W. REYNOLDS, remaining there two years and then beginning practice. In 1872, he was elected Prosecutor of the Court of Common Pleas for White, Carroll and Benton Counties, but the office was abolished in 1873, and the Circuit Court of Tippecanoe and White Counties established, and of this he was appointed Prosecuting Attorney in March, and at a special election in October was elected to the office, which he filled until 1875, when the circuit was changed to the Thirty-ninth Judicial Cicuit, comprising Carroll, White and Pulaski Counties, to which he was appointed Prosecutor, which office he held until January 1, 1880, when he formed a partnership with H. P. OWENS, which partnership was dissolved January 1, 1883. MR. UHL was married, October 15, 1874, to MISS FANNIE A. BROWN, of Rochester, New York, and to this union has been born one child - FARA.
