Don't know if this would be any relation but I sending the information I have on Reinhold Reimers. This would be a great serveral times grandfather of my husband. Do you see any conections?

Reinhold Reimers, who died in 1910, was an able representative of the farming community of Pierce County and was an old time resident of the county of that name. He developed a fine farm, and was a man of energetic labors, who by strict integrity became a highly esteemed and respected citizen of that section of Pierce County. Mr. Reimers was a native of Holstein, Germany, born January 26, 1850. His father died shortly after he was born, and the mother, with her children came to America in 1868 in the emigrant ship "The Saxonis", which afterward founded at Sea. They had a stormy passage, being on the water a long time feeling that none would reach land alive. On landing in New York our subject's family at once went to Clinton, County, Iowa joining his brother John who had located there previously, and he immediately went to work on a farm there, saving his earnings until he was able to purchase eighty acres of land in Crawford County, Iowa, where he married and started farming on his own account. The land was entirely unimproved, but he put up buildings and worked faithfully to get it in productive shape, after nine years being able to sell it for a good sum, he then went to Ida County, Iowa and bought one hundred and sixty acres, remaining there up to 1891, when he came to Nebraska. He purchased a half section on Willow Creek in Pierce County and later added another two hundred and fifty acres bought from the Elk Valley Stock Farm to his original homestead and on this extensive place he raised enormous crops of corn and other grains, also running a large number of Cattle and other stock. Mr. & Mrs. Reimers had 14 children, eleven of whom are living namely; Dora, John, Emma, Henry, Anna, Fred, Ida all married except Fred, who was his father's chief helper on the farm, while the four younger ones Tena, Bertha, Emil and Albert, are also on the homestead. Mrs. Reimers was married twice. Mr. Reimers was a liberal in politics, formerly being a republican, but admiring the sterling qualities of W.J. Bayan, voted for him when a candidate. In local politics, he voted for the man regardless of party. With his family he was an active member of the Lutheran Church in Pierce, Nebraska.
Reinhold R. Reimers farmland was deeded to Reinholds eleven living children, each receiving 1/11th. Mr. Reimers second wife Sophia, was paid money by the children for her share. This final decree was dated January 29, 1917. It was also in Reinhold's "will" that Sophia was to leave the family after his death.
Anna Margarete Watke was Reinhold Reimers first wife, and the mother of his fourteen children. She was born November 3, 1855 at Schleswig, Holstein, Germany to Claus Henry Watke and Dorethea Travb. She came to America with her folks in 1874 locating in Clinton County, Iowa where on July 12, 1877 she was united in marriage with Reinhold Reimers. From this union came 14 children. In March, 1891 the family came to Pierce County, Nebraska, from Iowa, where they have since resided. Mrs. Reimers died after an illness of ten days with puerperal fever, age 43 years, Friday morning January 6, 1899 and on Sunday January 8, 1899, funeral services were held and attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Over one hundred teams of horses being in the procession to the cemetery. Interment was made in the Prospect View Cemetery, south of Pierce, Nebraska.
Reinhold R. Reimers was born January 26 1850 at Hemme, Schleswig, Holstein, Germany to Reinhold Reimers and Catherine Arp, and came to America with his mother and step-father Paul Kohlmorgan in 1868, at the age of 18 years, settling near Clinton Iowa, going to Crowford County Iowa in 1876, He married Anna Margarete Watke in 1877 and 14 children were born to this union. In 1891 the family moved to Pierce County, Nebraska. It was here that the mother passed away in 1899. Mr. Reimers disposed of his place and purchased the Mason farm a half-mile north of Pierce. On January 30, 1902 he married Mrs. Sophie Brace (Indian) of Battle Creek, Nebraska. He passed away November 18, 1910 after a long and painful illness of several months.

I am the grandaughter of Lillian Reimers and Ray Baylor. Please contact me with any other information. I am just starting to work on my family tree. I am really interested on what happened to Chris Reimers In Lima, Peru. All my family was ever told about his death was that it was "under unusual circumstances."
