30 Oct 1830, August Grimmer was born in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Sachsen, Germany.





About 1850 He married Wilhelmine in Germany.  She was born about 1831 in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Sachsen, Germany and died there about 1893.





About 1857 Their son Ernst Karl Charles Grimmer was born in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Germany.





1866 August was residing in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Germany.





7 Dec 1866 Their son Louis Herman Grimmer was born in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Germany.






Apr 1871 Their son Max Grimmer was born in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Germany.






On 5 Jun 1891 Wilhelmine, frau (wife), was found sailing aboard the “Fürst Bismarck” from Hamburg, Germany at the age of 61 years.  She arrived at the Port of New York on 15 Jun 1891.  Her destination was Chicago.  She was coming to America to visit her children.

In Jun 1891, Wilhelmine was found visiting her children in Dolgeville, Herkimer, NY at the age of 60 years.  Her son Max came from Schenectady to see her.  He lived in Dolgeville from 1888 to 1890 before relocating to Rome then Schenectady.



It is apparent, by the date of Wilhelmine’s arrival to America and the date of her visit to Dolgeville, NY that she went there first, not Chicago.  I am sure she had children & other relatives in Chicago.  There were many Grimmers there at that time.  I am in the process of researching them now, trying to confirm a relationship to our Grimmer family.





About 1893 Wilhelmine died in Leipzig, Stötteritz, Saxony, Germany.  August’s death date has been undetermined to date.






20 Oct 1896, daughter Eliza Grimmer married Charles House in  Little Falls, Herkimer, New York.
