Biography of Henry W. Hermann, M.D

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now Dr. Henry W. Hermann, who has attained prominence in the field of neurology, was born on the 9th of June, 1855, at Hermansburg, Washington county, Arkansas, and is a son of Charles F. and Lena D. (Wilhelmi) Hermann. According to a genealogical record printed by C. F. Hermann, the first date mentioned in connection with the family in America is 1650. In a volume entitled Founders of Harman’s Station, Kentucky, it appears that one Heinrich Hermann from the same family reached America about the year 1700, penetrated as far west as the Mississippi river, and was celebrated as an Indian fighter. During the Revolutionary war his sons fought the British who had incited the Indians to make war upon the early settlers. The Wilhelmi genealogy dates back to 1525, naming a minister, the builder of a beautiful pulpit at Elprincen, Westphalia. The eldest son in this family has been a minister for nine generations and the father of Lena D. Wilhelmi also devoted his life to that holy calling. Charles F.

He is able to contrast the American life of the past half century with the restricted and intolerant regime of the European fatherland where he was born and bred. He early conceived an abomination for a country which imposed compulsory military service, compulsory education, and a host of other restrictions upon the freedom and liberty of its people. It was to escape all of that tyranny that he left when a young lad and with courage and undaunted determination came across the ocean. He had those wholesome characteristics of the German nationality, methodical industry and an ability to adapt himself to varying circumstances, and this national characteristic had flourished and borne fruitage under the free skies of America, in the midst of the democratic institutions and the freedom of initiative and while Mr. Hermann had enjoyed a successful and prosperous business career he had also developed a love and loyalty for the United States such as no American born citizen could excel. It is his fondest hope and anticipation that he may live peacefully the remainder...
