My gr-gr-gr grandmother Mary Elizabeth (Wilt) McKimmy was the daughter of John Michael Wilt and Catherine Hay. Here is her obituary From The Gospel Messenger, January 3, 1888

McKimmy -- In the Swan Creek church, Lenawee County, Michigan, Nov 23, (1887) sister Mary McKimmy, aged 69 years and 21 days. Deceased was a consistent member of the Brethren church. She suffered a long time but bore it patiently. She was born in Pennsylvania but when nine years old moved with her parents to West Virginia. At the age of 28 years she was married to James McKimmy. Soon afterwards both she and her husband united with the church. She was the mother of fourteen children, of whom seven, together with her husband, preceded her to the spirit world. She leaves forty-two grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. May all her children live faithful, so they may meet their mother in heaven.
Services by the writer. --David Berkeybile

She was born November 2, 1811 in Brothers Valley Twp. Somerset County PA. She died November 23, 1887 in Lenawee County Michigan.
