Zimmer, John Sr. (18 SEP 1828 - 14 DEC 1896)
John Zimmer Sr., an old and respected resident of the town of Reseburg, Clark County, Wis., died of pneumonia on Monday morning last, aged 68 years. He was born at Elsas near Strasburg, Germany, on Sept. 18, 1828, and immigrated to Canada when 39 years of age. In 1868 he was united in marriage with Carolina Pfrimmer, whose death occurred on Dec. 23, 1895. In 1877 he came to the United States and three years later settled on a farm in the town of Reseburg, where he has since resided. He was highly respected by all his neighbors and like several old citizens who have recently gone to that better land, he will long and kindly be remembered. He leaves three children, John Jr., Mrs. Peter Deforth and Mrs. Chas. Roessler. The funeral occurred yesterday, burial taking place in the cemetery near his late home.
