John Carl Timm was born in Germany. Information is sketchy but it is suggested that he may have fled Germany (or Prussia) one step ahead of the Kaiser's soldiers. According to census records, his oldest child was born in Germany in 1877, so perhaps Carl immigrated to America in the early 1880's as did so many others from Germany. John Carl was born 2 April 1849 at Neustetten, Germany and died in Cleveland Ohio on 27 August 1930. His death certificate names his parents as John Timm and Fredericka Stilles. It is believed that Neustetten was *near* Stetten, which is now known as Szczecin, just inside the Polish border.
His wife Ida E Doege was born 25 January 1848 in Falkenburg, Germany and died 29 November 1932. Nothing further is known about her at this time. They may have lived at first in Michigan. At one time he was a teamster, "back in the days when teamsters had to clean up the horse shit".
