Re: Henry Wimber 1830 - 1927 Germany - Iowa
We don't have too much information about our Henry's origins.I have a handwritten letter that states "I was born in the province of Westphalia Germany in 1830, came to America in 1842, landed in New York....moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin, settled on a farm near Burlington, Wisconsin."According to another source, Henry grew up in Vermont, then moved to Chicago.He married in Peoria Illinois in 1854, then settled in West Union, Fayette Co., Iowa by 1860. I don't have any other information about his family of origin, other than the fact that he was Catholic all his life.
If I can help further, please feel free to contact me by email.
