Peter Philip Bilhorn États-Unis Bilhorn’s family name was originally Pulhorn; it was changed by a judge in Ottawa, Illinois, named Abraham Lincoln. Peter and his brother formed the Eureka Wagon and Carriage Works in Chicago, Illinois. Later, Peter became involved in Gospel music, studying under George Root, George Stebbins, and others. He wrote some 2,000 Gospel songs in his lifetime, and for a while, worked with evangelist Billy Sunday. He also invented a folding pump organ used at revivals in the late 19th Century, and founded the Bilhorn Folding Organ Company in Chicago, Illinois.
