NOTES

Both of Asher's parents were from  Highland County, Virginia which is on the border with
West Virginia. His father "Amos Wimer" married in March 18, 1841 in Pendleton County,
West Virginia to a Elizabeth Simmons. I find no other record of Elizabeth Simmons or of
any other marriage by Amos Wimer. It is possible that Asher's mother's full name may
have been Phoeba Elizabeth Simmons.

Brownsville, Missouri will is no longer existing due to being completely destroyed
by a tornado  or as stated by an April 19, 1882 Saint Louis Globe-Democrat newspaper
article, a "cyclone / hurricane".
