Names and Page # Index




Dr. Eugene N. Wilhelm, one of Raubsvilleís well known citizens, was born June 3, 1854, in the city where he now resides.  He is a son of John H. and Susanna (Unangst) Wilhelm, the former a native of Northampton County, and for many years a practitioner of Raubsville, where his death occurred in 1886.  The boyhood and youthful years of our subject were somewhat uneventfully passed in the city of his birth, in the common schools of which he was for some time a student, thereby laying the foundations for the knowledge he afterward acquired by self-culture.  

Beginning in life, our subject was for some years an assistant to his father, but since the death of the latter he has practiced alone.  He has made a specialty of the treatment of chronic disease, for which he has his own special remedies, thought often introducing into his practice the magnetic treatment, in which he has met with success.  In his diagnosis of cases he is keen in perception and accurate in analysis, and through energy, perseverance and sound judgment has gained success in his practice. 

As a helpmate on lifeís journey, Dr. Wilhelm selected Miss Regetta Purdy, daughter of John B. Purdy, lat of Easton, PA., but now deceased. There have been born unto this union ten children, of whom nine are now living. They are Mary R., Arthur F., Jacob C., Howard, Mabel, Maud, Elizabeth, Agnes and Susanna.  Ethel died in childhood.

 The political belief of Dr. Wilhelm has led him into affiliation with the Democratic party, the principles of which receive his earnest and faithful allegiance.  In religious matters he is a Lutheran, and holds membership with St. Paulís Church of Raubsville, to which his family also belongs.  In his social connections he is identified with the Masonic fraternity, belonging to Prosperity Lodge No. 567, F. & A. M., at Riegelsville.  He is a charter member of Unity Order No. 1, Knights of Humanity, at Raubsville, with which organization he has been prominently connected since its establishment.   At present he is serving as its Commander.  He is a man of pleasant, genial disposition, who has the esteem and confidence of the community.
