Re: Wesley Kimmer, b. WI, Cora Vessel, b. GA
Wesley and Cora are my grandparents. During the civil war it was common for busnessmen or wealthy individuals to hire someone to serve their time in the military. Wesley entered the civil war under the Gilliam name. I am the son of Lloyd Kimmer who was the youngest sibling to Orion Kimmer and Josie (Kimmer) Gore. A lot of family history was lost in a house fire many years ago. Feel free to e-mail me any questions.
