Family of Rachel Reimer
Posted by: Reed Dilley Date: December 13, 2001 at 00:56:38
  of 603

REIMER, Rachel
b. 18 JUL 1799 – (Northampton) PA
d. 22 SEP 1878 – Auburn (DeKalb) IN
bur. Waterloo Cemetary – Auburn (Dekalb) IN
Spouse: Jacob Garrison
Daughter of Jacob REIMER and Elizabeth HELLER

I am looking for evidence to support the claim that Rachel REIMER had another husband (surname DILLEY) prior to Jacob GARRISON as well as one son from that first marriage.

This first husband allegedly died in a land clearing/blasting incident in, or near, Luzerne Cty, PA about 1824. His son (and only child) may not yet have born at that time.

Rachel’s son from this first marriage is named William Lloyd DILLEY and is my great-grandfather.

The identity of William Lloyd’s father has been the brickwall in our family for many years. It has only been quite recently that this possible connection to Rachel REIMER has been confirmed. If anyone has any information regarding this family group please contact me at

Thanks in advance.

Reed Dilley
