Wiegand, C. H. cashier of the Farmers & Merchants State Bank of Eagle River, Vilas County, was born at Appleton, Wis., April 26, 1886, son of Conrad and Mary (LOWNEY) WIEGAND. Both parents passed away many years ago. The subject of this sketch was first educated in the public schools of Eagle River, being graduated from the high school with the class of 1902. He then entered the North Wisconsin Academy at Ashland and in 1910 the Minnesota State Univeristy, being graduated from the law department of the latter institution with the class of 1913. In the same year he was admitted to the state bar of Wisconsin and opened a general law office in Eagle River, in connection with the abstract offices of Finn LAWLER, at which location he successfully practiced his profession until the spring of 1918, when he was elected to and accepted the position of cashier of the Farmers & Merchants State Bank of Eagle River. He has since given his undivided attention to the banking business and his general competence and affable manners have proved assets to the institution. During 1915-16 he served as district attorney of Vilas County, and he is now one of the trustees of the village of Eagle River. While this country was involved in the World War Mr. WIEGAND proved his true Americanism by patriotic service in home work; he was a member of the Legal Advisory board, also of the executive committee of the Council of Defence, secretary of the Vilas County Red Cross Chapter, and fuel administrator. Mr. WIEGAND was married in St. Louis, Mo., June 29, 1916, to Opal FERGUSON of that city, and he and his wife are the parents of two daughters, Marjorie and Mary Elizabeth. Mr. WIEGAND is a Royal Arch Mason, belonging to the lodge in Eagle River and the Chapter in Rhinelander. He and His family are affiliated religiously with the Congregational Church.
