Photo in History


Richard W. Renner provided more information about the Photo in History “Lee Wymer and horses in Pine Bluffs WY” in the Pine Bluffs Post July 10 Issue.

Renner said, “Lee Wymer farmed around Pine Bluffs area in the first half of the twentieth century. Wymer was born into a farming family in Carleton, Neb. in 1889 and around 1910 followed his brothers Herman and John west to Pine Bluffs. Wymer married Ada Tyler in 1912 in Pine Bluffs and is recorded as a local family farmer for many years. Wymer and his family moved to Marion, MO. by 1940 where he was engaged in dairy farming. In 1946, Wymer reportedly was back in Pine Bluffs, but returned to Missouri where he continues farming and, sadly, was killed in a tractor accident in December 1950. Wymer and his wife are buried in Joplin, MO.”
