      Edmund M. Kirchner. — Wheeling may well place reliance and
      take pride in the status of her native sons who have here become
      potent factors in her industrial, commercial, professional and general
      business activities, and many of the number stand exemplar of that pro-
      gressive spirit through the agency of which is being compassed the
      upbuilding of the larger and greater city. Altogether worthy of con-
      sideration as a member of this class of loyal and energetic young bus-
      iness men is Edmund M. Kirchner, who is here an influential figure in
      connection with real estate operations and whose well ordered activities
      are doing much to foster material and civic growth and prosperity. He
      is a son of Alichael and Katherine (Coleman) Kirchner of Wheeling,
      where the father had long been identified with the furniture business
      in association with G. iMendel & Company. The mother still resides in
      Wheeling. The family has at all times commanded secure vantage place
      in popular esteem in this community.

      Edmund Michael Kirchner was born in Wheeling and the date of
      his nativity is October 20, 1880. After availing himself of the advan-
      tages of the excellent parochial school conducted in connection with St.
      Alphonsus’ church, he further fortified himself for the practical duties
      and responsibilities of life by a course in the Adoise Business College,
      one of the valued institutions of Wheeling. He has familiarized him-
      self thoroughly with all details of the real estate business, in which he
      initiates his service in the dignified capacity of office boy, and in con-
      nection with this important line of enterprise he has arisen to a position
      of distinctive prominence and influence in his native city, where he is
      now president of the Mozart Improvement Company and also the Hesse
      & Kirchner Company, engaged in the real estate business, besides which
      he is secretary of the Wolfhurst Land Company and treasurer of the
      Lansing Land Company. He is liberal and progressive as a citizen and
      is known as one of the reliable, enterprising and substantial business
      men of the younger generation in the West Virginia metropolis, where
      he has won advancement through his own ability and well directed
      efforts. He holds membership in the Arion and Columbia Clubs, repre-
      sentative social organizations of Wheeling, and both he and his wife
      are communicants of the Catholic church, in which they hold member-
      ship in the parish of St. Alphonsus’ church, under whose gracious
      auspices he was reared. He has never had any desire to enter the arena
      of practical politics and is independent in his affiliations.

      On the 17th of May, 1906, was solemnized the marriage of Mr.
      Kirchner to Miss Emma M. Keller, who was born and reared in
      Wheeling and who is a daughter of Gregory and Theresa (Sheibelhood )
      Keller. Her father is one of the representative stone contractors of
      Wheeling. Mr. and ]\Irs. Kirchner have two children, Marcellus C. and
