FAMILY HISTORY SKETCH: The following biographical sketch of was written by Agnes Simon Riesett, from oral history that had come down in the family.
"Will Gibmeyer was born in 1885. He worked as a carpenter, married Eva Wolfe and had no children. This was sad, since Will loved to play with children. Fortunately, his wife?s sister, ?Mommie White,? lived across the street and had quite few for Will to spoil. Will also had a very husky voice. This was due to scarring of his throat and larynx. As a young carpenter, he had a habit of holding nails in his mouth until needed. Unwittingly, he swallowed one, which became lodged his throat, causing infection and pus to build up. After being treated in vain by several doctors for a common throat infection, one doctor finally realized the source of the problem, and by manipulating his throat, finally forced up the offending nail in a mass of pus. The infection then healed but the damage to his voice remained. Will died in 1946 and Eva died in 1962."
