Edgar J. Waye, Dentist

Dr. Edgar J. Waye was a dentist in Sandusky from the late 1860's through the early 1900's. A citation from the Lorain County News tells us that Dr. Waye married Leila H. Smith in Sandusky, Ohio on August 21, 1861.

Dr. Waye advertised "artificial teeth" in an advertisement from the April 1, 1891 Sandusky Register.

An article from the July 11, 1900 issue of the Sandusky Star reports that Dr. Waye was the president of the Sandusky Dental Society in 1900. The local Dental Society traveled to Johnson's Island, where Dr. Waye gave a short address about the former Civil War prison.

Dr. E. J. Waye died in April of 1905. He was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Dr. Waye's daughter Winifred Waye was an artist and a journalist. You can read about her at the Sandusky History blog.
