Lisa Johnson I remember meeting great Aunt Ruth on more than one occasion. She resided in FL during the winter, and I went to visit her as a child with Katherine Ruth (Kimmerle) Follett. She served us fresh grapefruit from her tree, and honey from a honey-comb. It was the first time I ever ate part of a honey-comb. I remember her hands looked very old, and she had slight tremors.

Lisa Johnson Did you know my grandma, or just come across her research? My brother and I helped many hours by going to libraries with her when we were young and scrolling through the microfilm! : )

Lisa Johnson Yes, Chris, that's exactly the lady I was looking at. (Not hard to find because she wasn't an attractive woman!)

Lisa Johnson I see a lady who looks like my great-great-grandmother, Ella (I think) Dunning, Grover Kimmerle's mother. She was married to Charles Kimmerle.

Lisa Johnson I think Grover Kimmerle's mother's maiden name was Dunning. Is there an Ella Dunning? Perhaps she is in this picture.

Lisa Johnson My mom, Mary Jo, was named after Mary Kimmerle King, and Josephine Kimmerle Redfield. I can't ID anyone you haven't already, but she may be able to. I'll ask her.

Lisa Johnson Charles Kimmerle was probably the one in the family my grandma talked about who had a goiter. Not a birthmark, but overgrowth of the thyroid gland. Charles was her grandfather, and Grover, on the far left, first row, was his son; my great-grandfather. Charles Kimmerle named his son after Grover Cleveland. The handwriting is my grandmother's: Katherine, Grover's daughter. I am Lisa, Katherine's second child, Mary Jo's, daughter.

Lisa Johnson By the way, Frances Kimmerle is Grover's second wife. I think she's the one stooping down next to the young girl. These are all names I have heard talked about many times over the years, and have spent time with many of them. I'll check your website to see how we are connected.
