My father, William Smith Garton, and Bill Wimmer grew up almost as brothers rather than first cousins.They did everything together, but then Bill grew up and moved away. We lost track of the Wimmer family.
Did you know that you are descended from Capt. John Sutter's cook?Mrs. Wimmer was quite a "strong" woman.
Would love to know more about what happened to the Wimmers.Glad to meet you and Deborah Fiedler.
John Smith Akers was my great grandfather.His dau. Albie Ann Akers married John Michael Garton, my grandparents.Take care cousin!
