Donna, can you tell me if your Joseph Wimer had a brother Isaac? On 30 Dec 1879, in Frontier Co., Nebraska, Catherine Waits Wilson, widow of my relative John C. Wilson, Jr., married second Isaac Wimer. According to this marriage record, Isaac was 38 years old (b. 1841), had been born in Pennsylvania, and was the son of Isaac Wimer. This record does not name his mother, though there is a field on the license application where this info was meant to be added. This marriage was apparently very short-lived, as Catherine was a widow by the time of the 1880 census. Have as yet been unable to locate a death record or cemetery information for Isaac, and would also very much like to learn the name of Isaac's mother. Can you help me? Thanks in advance.
