Trying to find personnel information : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am tryin g to find when may father, grand father , and great grand father worked at the Southern Railway yard there in Spencer North Carolina. I think from late 1700's on. Their names are as follows: Wilber James Rimer Father Charles E Rimer Grand Frederick Rimer (Riemer) Great grand

Any help will be greratly appreciated. I know they all worked there, but wondered if you could tell us when and where in Germany they came from. Thanks

Your ancestors could not have worked at Spencer Yard in the late 1700s, since it was built in the early 1900s (around 1902-1905). Depending on your age, they could have worked there during the 1900s. I worked for the Southern from 1969-1982(after that for NS) for the division that controlled Spencer. I think I have seen the name Rimer on documents over the years, and some in my possession. I will look to see if I can find anything.
