      JAMES EDWARD WILSON, M. D. Holding prestige in the ranks of his profession because of the possession of marked natural and acquired ability, aided by a comprehensive training and wide experience, Dr. James Edward Wilson is firmly established in the confidence of the people of Clarksburg. He is secretary of the staff of physicians and surgeons at St. Mary's Hospital, and of recent years has become known as an authority on X-Ray work.

      Doctor Wilson was born at Princess Anne, Somerset County, Maryland, August 3, 1881, a son of Levin James and Mary Evelyn (Dougherty) Wilson, also natives of Maryland, the former born in 1844 and the latter in 1850. They still make their home at Princess Anne, where Levin J. Wilson was engaged successfully in agricultural pursuits for many years.

      Mr. and Mrs. Wilson are numbered among the highly esteemed residents of their community and are noted for their many excellencies of heart and mind. Of their children three grew to maturity, namely: Mary E., Jane D. and James Edward.

      The primary educational training of James Edward Wilson was acquired in the graded schools of his native city, following which he attended high school, thus receiving a good elementary education. After some further preparation he enrolled as a student at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the famous Baltimore institution, and, completing the required course, was duly graduated and received his degree of Doctor of Medicine May 18,1904. In the following month he began his professional career at Clarksburg, which has continued to be his home and the scene of his accomplishments.

      Doctor Wilson came to Clarksburg as superintendent of the Harrison County Hospital, which afterward became, as now, St. Mary's Hospital, an institution with which he is still connected, being secretary of the staff of physicians and surgeons. During the past few years Doctor Wilson has devoted much of his time and attention to research and investigation in the interesting and inexhaustible field of X-Ray work, a department of his profession in which he has gained something more than a local reputation. He is frequently called into consultation in connection with work of this character, and his associates have the greatest confidence in his knowledge and application of the subject.

      Doctor Wilson is a member of the Harrison County Medical Society, the West Virginia State Medical Society, the American Medical Association, the Southern Medical Society, the Southern States Association of Railway Surgeons, the Baltimore & Ohio Railway Surgeons Association, the West Virginia Hospital Association, the National Catholic Hospital Association, and the Radiogical Society of North America.

      He acts as local surgeon at Clarksburg for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Fraternally Doctor Wilson is a thirty-second degree Scottish Rite Mason, a Noble of the Mystic Shrine and a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He is interested in civic affairs as a public-spirited citizen, and holds membership in the Clarksburg Rotary Club and the Clarksburg Chamber of Commerce. In politics the Doctor is allied with the democratic party, but has not been a seeker for public preferment. In religious relationship he is a communicant of the Episcopal Church, while Mrs. Wilson is a member of the Catholic Church.

      On September 6, 1906, Doctor Wilson was united in marriage with Miss Mary Evelyn Boggess, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Stringer Boggess, of Clarksburg, and to this union there have been born the following children: Mary Evelyn, James Edward, Marie Antoinette, Jane Boggess, Ann Pershing, Margaret Dougherty and Robert Stringer. Doctor Wilson has a pleasant home at Clarksburg, and maintains offices at No. 211 Empire Building.
