JIMMERSON, SMITH posted by Mark Blancher on Sunday, April 27, 1997

Help needed to find parents of my great grandfather. His full name was Herman A. JIMMERSON, born 12 Jun 1846 in Sparta, Morrow Co., Ohio. He married Julia Thankfull SMITH in Oregon, Ogle Co., Illinois 5 Feb 1874. He joined the army in the state of Illinois, and lived the rest of his life in Illinois. He died 29 Jan 1924 in Rockford, Illinois. I believe he had a brother named Edward or David born also in Ohio. They both say in the 1880 census that they were born in Ohio, and their father was born in New York State and their mother was born in Ohio. So I assume they were married in Ohio. I have Herman's military records from the Civil war. He was a Corporal in 18th Regiment Illinois infantry Volunteers from the 21st day of March 1865 and was discharged at Pine Bluff, Ark. Dec. 16th 1865. In the records I have he enlisted twice. He enlisted, was discharged for medical reasons, and then enlisted again later. I hope someone can help me with this as I have had no luck for about six years of searching. Mark Blancher, 1340 Brentcrest Dr., Medford, OR 97501.
