Charli...Thanks for checking the book. My grandparents were in Wentworth 1923-1933. They sold the farm and moved to Iowa to farm the remainder of their lives. My folks have visited the Wentworth area before they passed, but I haven't. I do have a pottery-type mixing bowl with the date 1883 I believe, stamped on it, an advertising bowl from Zimmerman Store, so my grandmother probably shopped there, when they were in the area. They did not live there in 1883, so I imagine that's when the store was originated.

My grandparents neighbors were Maasdam's (Dutch family). I have a photo of the Maasdam family farming east of Wentworth on some old equipment back in the old days and a photo of the Maasdam kids. They also moved to Iowa in later years. That's the only names I know in the Wentworth area. Thanks again!
