I'm looking for the ancestors of William Pim, b. abt 1844 in England (I believe) and married Maria Baragwanath b. 1847 England. They moved from Chicago to the Denver, CO area in the 1870s or thereabouts. Their children were William, Walter, Frank, Frederick, Emma, and Florence.

Maria's father was William Baragwanath b. Cornwall Dec 20 1890, immigrated in 1850 to Chicago and started the Baragwanath Boiler Company that manufactured steam heating systems for buildings. He and Pim were in business together so some directory listings show Baragwanath and Pim Boilers. This Pim is the father of William mentioned above. I believe he came from Pennsylvania, but my info is not reliable.

I'm also trying to determine if this William is a descendant or relative of Wakefield Pim, shipbuilder from Hull, Eng. I don't know that Wakefield was born in Hull, but that is where his shipbuilding business was located.

Does this fit anyone's trees?
