Edward Thomas Brimmer was the son of George Brimmer and Elizabeth "Eliza" Boothe.

His father George Brimmer was born in Jun 1839 in Basing, Basingstoke (Upper Half), Hampshire, England and his mother Eliza was born in 1843 in Sandbach, Cheshire, England.

Edward's sister's Mollie, Elizabeth and Eva were born in England. In about 1870 George, Eliza and their 3 daughter's immigrated to Pennsylvania. Edward was born 5 Dec 1872 in Pennsylvania. When he was very young the family moved to Longview, Gregg, Texas.

Edward and his sister's Mollie, Elizabeth "Lizzie", Eva and Amina were orphaned when their parents died in 1880. Amina was born in Jan 1880. Mollie said that both of their parents died in the same year. So they died sometime after Jan 1880 but before 21 Jun 1880 in Longview, Gregg, Texas.

On the 21 June 1880 Census for Longview, Gregg, Texas the children are orphans and all living with different families in the community. None of the family were relatives. Mollie the oldest was age 21, Lizzie was age 16, Eva was age 12, Edward was age 7 and Amina was 5 months old.

Mollie was a cook in the home of R.B and Edmonia Levy. Lizzie was a boarder in the home Samuel Wright and his family. Eva attended school and lived in the home of Rev. James H Wiggins and his Family. Edward was a boarder in the home of Hampden Wilson and R.G. Anderson a retail grocer and paid for his room and board by working in R.G.'s grocery store and on the farm of a Mulatto farmer named George McKenney. Amina was cared for by Kalisk and Louiza Mani. Lizzie married Ferguson McAfee Burton on 7 Mar 1887 in Longview, Gregg, Texas.

Mollie, Edward, Eva and Amina were pioneers, moving to the Salt River Valley in Maricopa, Arizona Territory, in a covered wagon about 1888. Eva married her husband Lindsey B Morrell on 14 Oct 1890 in Phoenix, Maricopa Co., Arizona. Edward Brimmer was a miner in the Gold Mines. Mollie was a dressmaker and raised Amina (Mollie never married). Lizzie had stayed in Longview, Texas but after her husband Ferguson's death in 1903 she and her children joined her siblings in Maricopa, Arizona.

Edward married his wife Chloe Adriana Teel on 21 Nov 1907 in Phoenix, Maricopa, Arizona.

In 1910 Edward, Chloe and their daughter Eva(3 months old) were living in Osborne, Maricopa, Arizona where Edward was still a miner in the gold mines. The following year Edward had to be carried out of the Gold Mines when he developed black lung disease.

Edward and Chloe then moved to Bloomington, California in 1911 where Edward was a Rancher.

Edward and Chloe moved to Yermo, California on 25 Dec. 1918, when Edward became an engineer with the "steam railroad".

Edward, Chloe and their eight children lived in Yermo, San Bernardino County, California from that time on.
