Pioneer of Illinois, Physician, Whig Party Political Figure. His early 1800s built cabin is still remaining as part of the Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site in Menard County, Illinois. 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.
