On August 29, 1872 Mr. WIMER was united in marriage to Alsista PEFFERS of North English, Iowa.

In the year of 1917 they moved to Cloverton, Minn. Shortly after this Mr. WIMERS'S health began to decline and in August, 1918, he returned to Iowa so that the climate might benefit his health. Mr. WIMER was of a kindly disposition, always trying to do or say something to cheer others. He will be greatly missed in the home.
