Obit: Zimmer, John Sr. (1828 - 1896)
Peter, My wife and I have a retirement project of putting as much history about Clark County, Wis. on the internet as we can on the website noted below. One of the things we have done is obtain the Thorp Courier newspapers for 1873 to 1921 and extract the obituaries and marriage notices. We plan to do that for all the newpapers in the county up to 1921, and then go on ten years at a time. Just last week we were in Clark County and photographed all the tombstones in the Thorp Village Cemetery. I don't recall whether John Zimmer was buried there or not. A fellow named Allen Boardman will be working on posting that cemetery to the website over the next several months.
We are doing this project for people just like you who may be looking for information about ancestors in Clark County.
