Timm, August: (1859-1924); d. 10-03-1924; "Another pioneer of Harrington took his departure from our narrowing circle of real pioneers, when August Wilhelm Timm died at Spokane Saturday, the 3rd of October. He had been sick since last spring, with an enlarged gall bladder, and recently seemed to be improving until his kidneys ceased to function and had to be tapped, after which the end came soon. The funeral was held Monday from the Lutheran church at Davenport, at which place interment took place, the Rev H F W Meyer officiating at the funeral service. Mr Timm was born in Germany and was married to Miss Dorothea Buhr in 1884. He emigrated to the US in 1888 and came to Washington the same year, and stopped with his brother, Fred Timm, in Lord's Valley. Later he homesteaded the place north of Harrington, now known as the Beck place, later selling it to Mr Beck. In 1889 he sent for his family, wife and three children, and they journeyed all the way from Germany and met him at Harrington. To this union there were born 13 children, all living, as follows: August, William, Anna (Mrs Laabs), Otto, Adolph, Albert, Mary (Mrs Denny Warwick), Elsie (Mrs Ernest Robinson), Freda (Mrs John Turner), Minnie (Mrs Elwood Turner), Miss Bertha, Henry (now attending U of W) and Fredrick. His wife died Nov 24, 1910, and in December, 1917, he was married to Mrs Gertrude Meng. He is survived by his widow, thirteen children and 18 grandchildren. Mr Timm was one of the organizers of the Lutheran church at Davenport. Mr Timm was a man of very even temperament, and had many friends. He moved to Harrington to live a few years ago and then shortly after, moved into Spokane. He has many friends in this community who regret his departure, and extend sympathy to his relatives in their bereavement." (Citizen: 10-10-1924) (See also The August Timm history compiled by family in the Harrington City Library);
