Biography of Fred D. Timm


FRED D. TIMM is a prosperous fruit grower residing at Peach, Lincoln County, Washington. He was born in Erie county, New York, on November 20,1856, reared on a farm and educated both in English and German, then went to Lancaster, Wisconsin, in the fall of 1882. In the spring of 1884 he came to Harrington engaged in farm work on salary, filed a preemption on Coal Creek, took a homestead on Lake creek and engaged in the stock raising business.  Owing to the severity of the winter of 1887-1888 he was so unfortunate as to lose most of his stock, but he gradually over came the loss and is now in a prosperous condition on his six acre tract of irrigated fruit land at Peach, where he came first in the spring of 1894.
Mr. TIMM's father is JOHN W. TIMM, a native German who came to the United States in 1856, settled in Erie county, where at the age of eighty he is still living a retired life. The mother of our subject was ANNA FERGEM TIMM, a native of Germany, and died during the childhood of Fred Timm.
FRED D. TIMM was married to TOMASA URIVA (URIBE)a native of Mexico, October 27,1892, and to them six children in all have been born, though only four are living, FRED W., REUBEN D., MINNIE A., and ALMIRA R.
MRS. TIMM was the daughter of ROQUE and DOMASA URIVA(URIBE), the former being deceased in Mexico and the latter still living in Peach.
At an early age MRS. TIMM came to California, and from that state to Lincoln county, Washington, in 1892, where she died December 20,1903, at the age of thirty-six.  She was a devoted and self sacrificing mother to her children, and a patient, faithful helpmeet to Mr. Timm.
