Francis Regnier
Birth: 1808
Ohio, USA
Death: Sep. 14, 1859

One year after Abe Lincoln arrived in New Salem, Illinois, Dr. Francis Regnier of Marietta, Ohio, purchased a cabin and set up his practice. Stout, witty and eccentric, Dr. Regnier was the son of a French physician. In 1834 he moved to nearby Clary's Grove, but continued using the New Salem location as his office for several years. In the 1840s he represented Menard County in a Whig Party nominating convention, where his vote was pledged for Lincoln.
