Following obituary for Barbara Evans Zimmer:

Barbara Zimmer

Barbara Evans Zimmer age 81, of Indianapolis. A loving family, devoted friends, and the Indianapolis arts, cultural and educational communities mourn the passing on Saturday, August 7th, of Barbara Evans Zimmer. Born Barbara Jean Evans in Minneapolis on December 13, 1929, she grew up in different towns throughout the Midwest. She attended the University of Chicago on a scholarship and graduated with a B.A. (cum laude) in 1949. It was at Chicago that she met and married Karl Zimmer, her husband of 61 years. The couple, and eventually their three children, lived for several years in Denmark and the Netherlands, before returning to the United States in 1963. After moving to Indianapolis in 1964, Barbara earned her Secondary School Teaching Certificate and an M.A. in History from Butler University in 1970. She was passionate about giving to others. She applied the same selfless energy to being a wife and mother as she did to her volunteer work and her teaching. She was a counselor and friend to many from all backgrounds and walks of life. She sought neither honors nor recognition, but truly enjoyed enriching other people's lives. And it was experiencing the accomplishments of others, knowing she had made a difference, that gave her so much joy. Barbara Zimmer's volunteer work would fill volumes. She became active in the Indianapolis League of Women Voters, and later became President of the Indiana League. She was a member of the Unigov Task Force, Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee; Chair of the Indiana Employment and Training Council; President of Crossroads Guild; Member of the Board and later Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the YWCA; President of the Indianapolis Woman's Club; President of the Indiana Women's History Archives Board; and member of several not-for-profit boards including the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School, Dance Kaleidoscope, and IUPUI University Library. For 16 years, Barbara taught in the Writing and ESL Programs in the English Department at IUPUI. She was an original staff member of the Writing Center and Visiting Teacher from the Writing Center to other schools and departments. In 1994 she was selected to initiate and teach expository writing at Ikatan University in Kajang, Malaysia, in a program of the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, whereupon she and Karl moved to Malaysia for two semesters. Prior to that, she had been appointed Staff Writer for the Indiana Department of Education Curriculum Advisory Council documents on education reform, and was the editor of Indiana Schooling for the 21st Century. An endowed chair at the Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication at IUPUI and endowed scholarships at The College, University of Chicago, testify further to Barbara's commitment to the Humanities in higher education. Among her honors were the IUPUI Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching; the Don Mobley Award for Associate Faculty; the Distinguished Faculty Service Award of the IUPUI School of Liberal Arts; and the Outstanding Service to the Malaysia Program Award from the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology. She was proud to have been appointed a Sagamore of the Wabash. In addition to the time she spent in community service work, she and Karl were avid world travelers. And to Barbara, few things were more enjoyable than tennis. For forty years she met on the court three times a week with her tennis buddies ("my support group"): dear friends who exchanged confidences as often as lobs and passing shots. Barbara was preceded in death by her brother, James Harrison Evans IV, and is survived by her sister, Mary Evans Fox (Burr Ridge, Illinois); her husband, Karl; their three children, Kaarina Ann Zimmer (The Hague, the Netherlands), Karl R. (wife Minna Andersén) Zimmer III (Plainfield, Indiana), and Erik Hunter Zimmer (The Hague, the Netherlands); two grandchildren, K. Ryan Zimmer and Alexandra Nicole Zimmer, and their mother, Peggy Figg Zimmer (Mooresville, Indiana). The family has planned private funeral services. A memorial service will be held later. If you wish to make a memorial gift, both the Teachers Wish Fund at the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School and Dance Kaleidoscope were dear to Barbara's heart. Funeral Arrangements have been entrusted to Flanner and Buchanan Funeral Center - Broad Ripple. Those who wish to share thoughts with the family may do so by visiting their online guest registry at: www.flannerbuchanan.com.

Isaiah David Evans married Emma Loomis Williams, daughter of Rev. Alvin Dighton Williams and Sarah Anne Harn, on 25 April 1878 at Kenesaw, Adams Co., Nebraska. Isaiah David Evans died on 10 January 1935 at 614 No. 26th, Lincoln, Lancaster Co., Nebraska, at age 90.2 He was buried on 11 January 1935 at Kenesaw Cemetery, Kenesaw, Adams Co., Nebraska.3,4 Ellen Dorcas Harn Manuscript. In Civil War, 1st Sgt, Company E, 49th Wisc Infantry. Past & Present of Adams Co., NE, Vol II, 1916, pg 52-54.

The following obituary was in the Lincoln Star newspaper of 10Jan1935.
Isaiah D. Evans, 90, former State G.A.R. Commander and picturesque Nebraskan, dies at his home here. Death Thursday morning closed the long and colorful career of Isaiah D. Evans, soldier, plainsman, prospector, teacher, editor, banker, farmer, city founder and legislator.
Mr. Evans, who was 90 on Christmas day, died at his home, 614 North Twenty-sixth Street, at 2:30 o'clock Thursday morning following a brief illness. He was a former G.A.R. state commander. He had been in failing health for a number of years but his vigorous physique was strong enough, a year ago to recover from a serious operation. Funeral services will be held at the home at 9:15 o'clock Friday morning, Dr. A.L. Weatherly officiating. The body will be taken to Kenesaw for internment.
The name I.D. Evans became famed in the state shortly after the turn of the century because of the great quantities of letters he sent to newspapers and periodicals on civic and agricultural questions. His long career was filled with color, adventure and honor. He lived in Lincoln for the past 10 years. Last May he was presented with a jeweled badge by the G.A.R. and allied orders.
Isaiah D. Evans was born in Torzer county, Pennsylvania, on Dec. 25, 1844, the son of Evan Evans and Margaret Williams who settled in America in 1843 after migrating from Wales. At the age of four he moved with his parents to Wisconsin, where he was educated in the Spring Green academy. He also took a commercial course in the Eastman business college.
It was not until 1866 that Mr. Evans made his first trip to Nebraska, crossing the plains in that year with a four-mule team. He went from Nebraska City across to Salt Lake City and then to farm maintained in Montana for four years, prospecting and teaching school in the winter. Then in 1871, he returned to Nebraska, settling at the then thriving town of Lowell where he edited, the Lowell Register, for many years. Later he edited the Sutton Register at Sutton, being one of its earliest editors. His editorial career in the state covered a period of about ten years.
Before coming west, however, he was one of the many youths who served in the Civil War. He volunteered at the beginning of the war and served all through the strife with Company E of the 49th Wisconsin Infantry. He was mustered out in November 1865, at St. Louis, a first sergeant, not yet 21 years old.
Following three and one-half years as a clerk and a cashier in the internal revenue office at Omaha he founded the town of Stockham for the Northwestern railway. He personally platted the town and supervised the sale of lots. He founded a bank there and for seven years was its cashier.
In 1896, he moved to a farm east of Kenesaw, Neb., in Adams county, which he farmed for many years. In 1899 he was elected to the legislature from Adams county on the republican ticket and in 1911 again served for a term as a legislature. During that term he was the minority candidate for speaker of the house.
During his legislative career he framed the presidential primary law. As a member of the constitutional convention of 1920 he assisted in framing the section of the constitution constituting the board of pardons. Earlier in his career he was an ardent supporter of the movement to have the initiative and referendum put into the constitution.
He had always been an ardent prohibitionist and in the 1911 session of the legislature he was the author of a law on some phase of the liquor question which a committee of the house had reported for indefinite postponement. On the day that the report came before the house for adoption, Evans arose and began a one-man filibuster in an effort to stave off action until absent friends of the bill could be rallied to its support. He talked all morning and at long past noon he halted long enough for some one to suggest a recess. After luncheon he returned to his place on the floor and again began his filibuster, filling in his time by reading from the Bible. Finally some one arose and on a point of order that no speaker could retain the floor more than five minutes, the filibuster was halted and the bill reported adversely.
For about six years, under Governors Weaver and McMullen, Evans was a clerk in the governor's office. He assisted with the writing of almost all of the governor's proclamations in those years.
In 1912, Mr. Evans was an unsuccessful candidate for the office of state auditor and in 1916 ran for the state senate from Adams and Clay counties, but was defeated. He was a former department commander of the Nebraska Grand Army of the Republic. For 15 years he served as a member of the Kenesaw school board. He was affiliated with the Masonic lodge and with the Odd Fellows.
His last public appearance was made just about a year ago, when on February 8, 1934, he served as toastmaster at a banquet given in Lincoln in honor of the visiting national commander of the G.A.R., Col. Russell Martin of Los Angeles.
Mr. Evans was widely known throughout the state when he began his writings in his newspapers and later in other newspapers. During the time that he was in the internal revenue office in Omaha, his wife published the Sutton paper. After he moved to Kenesaw, he continued to manifest a great interest in all civic and national affairs and wrote numerous letters to newspapers and periodicals. He was intensely interested in the betterment of agriculture and wrote much and did much to further the farmer's cause.
He was married to Miss Emma Williams at Kenesaw, Neb., on April 25, 1878, but she died a number of years ago. He is survived by a son, Fred W. Evans of Kenesaw; two daughters, Mrs. F.J. Schaufelberger of Los Angeles and Miss Esther Evans at home; a brother, A.D. Evans of McCook; and a sister, Mrs. W.S. Norlan of McCook. The body is at Castle, Roper & Matthews mortuary.

Following from the book, PAST AND PRESENT OF ADAMS COUNTY NEBRASKA, volume II, published in 1916 by The S.J. Clarke Publishing Company of Chicago, pg 52-54.
Isaiah D. Evans, of Kenesaw, who was formerly connected with journalism and banking, has since 1896 given his attention to agricultural interests and has proved very successful as a farmer. He has given a great deal of time and thought to public affairs and has been called to a number of offices, which he has filled with distinction.
He was born in Tioga county, Pennsylvania, December 25, 1844, of the marriage of Evan and Margaret (Williams) Evans, who emigrated from Wales to America in 1843. They resided in Pennsylvania until their son, Isaiah D., was four years of age, when removal was made to Wisconsin. The father was one of the representative citizens of his community and his demise, which occurred in 1863, was deeply regretted.
Isaiah D. Evans was reared at home and at the usual age entered the public schools, where he secured his early education. Subsequently he was a student in an academy at Spring Green, Wisconsin, and he took a commercial course in Eastman's Business College. At the time of the Civil war he enlisted in Company E, Forty-ninth Wisconsin Infantry, of which he became first sergeant, and remained with that command until after the close of hostilities, being mustered out at Benton Barracks, St. Louis, Missouri, in November, 1865, when not quite twenty-one years of age.
He decided to try his fortune in the far west and in 1866 drove four mules across the plains from Nebraska City to Salt Lake City and thence to Virginia City, Montana. He remained in that territory for about four years, during which time he engaged in prospecting to a considerable extent, and for two winters taught school. In 1871 he returned to Nebraska and located at Lowell, where he published the Lowell Register. Subsequently he established the Sutton Register and still later he was made cashier of the internal revenue office at Omaha. After his term of service expired he founded the town of Stockham in Hamilton county, Nebraska, in accordance with the terms of a contract with the Northwestern Railroad for establishing a station at that point. He saw to the platting of the town site and gave his personal attention to the sale of the town lots. During this time he also organized the Bank of Stockham, of which he was cashier for seven years.
In 1896 he removed to Kenesaw and has since engaged in farming in this locality. He is a frequent contributor to the agricultural press of the state and active in promoting better farming along modern lines. Mr. Evans was married on the 25th of April, 1878, at Kenesaw, to Miss Emma Williams, a daughter of Professor A.D. Williams, a minister of the Baptist church, an educator of note and an able writer. Before her marriage Mrs. Evans was a very successful teacher and for about three years, while Mr. Evans was in the government service at Omaha, she conducted the Sutton Register, having charge of all the work of publishing the paper with the exception that Mr. Evans furnished some of the editorial copy. To this union have been born three children, as follows: Grace Alice, whose birth occurred in 1881, is a graduate of the State University of Nebraska and is now the wife of F.J. Schaufelberger, of Los Angeles, California. Fred W. lives near the Evans homestead and is farming in partnership with his father. He married Miss Hazel Armitage and they have a son, Cedric, two years of age. Esther Evilian is living at home and has largely relived her mother of the cares of the house and is proving herself an expert housekeeper.
Mr. Evans is a man of influence in political circles of the state and has been a frequent contributor to the press on public questions. He is a progressive republican, being a strong believer in the rule of the people and in the strict regulation of big business. He recognizes that adjustment must be made in the political field as well as in others to the changed conditions of modern life and supports all movements calculated to bring about a more exact social justice. Among other progressive measures he favors the abolition of the liquor traffic as he is convinced that is responsible for many of the evils with which society has to contend. He has served in a number of offices and has always proved capable and conscientious in the discharge of his duties. He was for some time clerk in the internal revenue office at Omaha and was later promoted to cashier of that office. In 1899 and again in 1911 he was elected representative from Adams county to the state legislature and during both sessions he stood firmly for all measures whose adoption he believed would make for the public good. In 1911 he was the republican candidate for speaker and was recognized as one of the leaders of the house. He was very influential in legislative affairs, was the author of the presidential primary law, of the law creating a board of pardons, and was active in support of the initiative and referendum amendment to the constitution. In 1912 he was a candidate for the republican nomination for state auditor. He is at the present time a candidate for the state senate for the district comprising Adams and Clay counties. He is widely known throughout the state because of his activity in political lines and all who come in contact with him acknowledge his ability and his public spirit. His interest in the larger affairs of government has not prevented him from being active in local matters and for fifteen years he was a member of the Kenesaw school board. He is connected with the Masonic order and the Odd Fellows and is also a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, thus keeping in touch with his comrades in blue. The record of his varied activities is in itself proof that he is a prominent citizen of Kenesaw and of Adams county.

Following from the book History of Nebraska, volume III, by Albert Watkins, Ph. B., pg 490-491, Western Publishing & Engraving Company, Lincoln, Nebraska, 1913
EVANS, ISAIAH DAVID, of Kenesaw. Neb., was born on Christmas day, 1844, in Tioga county, Pa. His parents, Evan Evans and Margaret (Williams) Evans, were natives of Caermarthenshire, South Wales. The family moved from Pennsylvania to Sauk county, Wis., in 1849, being among the pioneers of that part of the badger state. The father of our subject was a prominent man in his community until his death in 1863.
Mr. Evans was educated in the public schools and at the Silsby Academy, Spring Green, Wis., and later took a commercial college course. However, by reading and study after leaving school he added largely to his stock of knowledge and his ability to think.
Mr. Evans enlisted in Company E, 49th regiment, Wisconsin volunteer infantry, and served until the close of the war, being first sergeant of his company at the time of his discharge.
In 1866, in company with his brother. John E Evans, of North Platte, Neb., he crossed the plains, driving a four mule team from Nebraska City to Salt Lake City, thence to Virginia City, Mont. He remained in that territory four years, prospecting and mining in summer and teaching school in winter. When he went west it took him two months to go from Nebraska City to Salt Lake City. When he returned the N. P .railroad was completed, so that the trip which formerly occupied two months was made in less than two days.
Mr. Evans has lived in Nebraska since 1871, when he taught a country school in Pawnee county, and in 1873 settled at Lowell, following the location of the U. S. land office at that place. He was deputy county clerk of Kearney county, postmaster at Lowell. and editor of the Lowell Register for three years.
The important event in the life of Mr. Evans was his marriage, April 25, 1878, to Miss Emma Williams, eldest daughter of the late Prof, and Mrs. A. D. Williams (see sketch of him in this work), at the farm home of her parents near Kenesaw. Miss Williams was a graduate of the West Virginia Female College, Wheeling, W. Va., and later for a time a student at the Nebraska University. She had taught successfully at Tecumseh, Pawnee City, and Lincoln. After Mr. Evans had established the Sutton Register, Mrs. Evans had charge of the paper for about three years, during Mr. Evans's absence in the employ of the government. Mr. and Mrs. Evans have three children: Grace Alice, now Mrs. F. J. Schaufelberger, of Los Angeles, Cal., both she and her husband being graduates of the Nebraska State University; Fred Williams Evans, living at home and running the farm; Esther Evilian Evans, just ready (1911) to enter the State University of Nebraska.
In 1887 Mr. Evans established the town of Stockham, in Hamilton county, having previously secured a contract from the Northwestern railroad, then building from Fremont to Hastings, to put a station at that point. He organized the Bank of Stockham and was its cashier and manager for seven years. In 1896 Mr. Evans moved onto a farm near Kenesaw and has lived there ever since.
Mr. Evans has held the following public positions; cashier of the U. S. internal revenue office at Omaha; supervisor of the census in 1900, for fifth congressional district of Nebraska; two terms a representative in the Nebraska legislature and fourteen years a member of the Kenesaw school board. His newspaper work covered three years as editor of the Lowell Register, one year associated with A. D. Williams in the publication of the Hastings Nebraskan, and seven years as editor and publisher of the Sutton Register.
During this latter period, from 1881 to 1887, the anti-monopoly movement was at its height, and the Register was a staunch anti-monopolist. In those days politics in Nebraska consisted of contests between the railroad faction and the anti-monopoly faction of the republican party. There were not enough democrats to pay for counting. Then as now, Mr. Evans was against the domination of special interests in politics and in favor of the rule of the people, and the Register said so in no uncertain terms.
His two terms in the legislature were highly creditable to Mr. Evans. His first term was in 1899, the 26th session. During the memorable senatorial contest of that session Mr. Evans voted every time for about two months, and until his election on the 8th of March, for Judge M. L. Hayward, whose untimely death a few months later — before he had taken his seat — is still a matter of deep regret, followed as it was, by a chapter in Nebraska politics anything but creditable to the state. Among the bills championed by Mr. Evans at that session was a series of banking bills — a bank guarantee bill, the first ever introduced in the Nebraska legislature ; a bill increasing the legal reserve of banks; and a bill to prohibit the loaning of the funds of the bank to its officers. An inheritance tax bill and a traveling library bill were also pioneers on these subjects. Although none of these bills passed, they were forerunners on these subjects, paving the way for successful efforts along similar lines at later sessions. Mr. Evans's second term was in 1911, which was preceded by the celebrated Dahlman-Aldrich campaign for governor, with the whiskey forces behind the democratic candidate and the temperance elements of all parties supporting Mr. Aldrich. The particular question at issue was county option — whether the farmer as well as the town man should be allowed to vote on the saloon question. Mr Evans was, as always, a republican. As a candidate he was pledged to county option — the right of the whole people to have a voice in the control of the liquor traffic. One of the campaign documents that Mr. Evans wrote was printed in three languages and circulated in every county in the state. He was the only "dry" candidate elected in his county.
At the convening of the legislature it was found that the democrats were in the majority — all wet but eleven — although all the state officers were republican. The "dry" republicans, with the assistance of the "dry" democrats were responsible for most of the creditable legislation of the session, in which Mr. Evans was conspicuous. Among the notable bills of the session was one providing for the election of delegates to national conventions, and the election of national committeemen and for an expression of preference by the voters at the primaries for president and vice president. This bill, introduced by Mr. Evans, became a law, and placed Nebraska in the front rank of progressive states by giving to the people direct participation in national politics, without the intervention of so-called leaders or bosses who had been in the habit of managing such matters regardless of the popular will in many cases. Mr. Evans has received inquiries in regard to this law from widely different sections of the country. It is freely predicted that this plan of making the popular will felt in the nomination of presidential candidates will finally be adopted by all the states.
County option, the pivotal question of the campaign, having failed to pass in both senate and house by one vote, Mr. Evans introduced an anti-treat bill which many practical men believed would, if enacted into law, be a strong influence in curtailing the evils of the saloon. It proposed to hold the saloon keeper liable for the violation of the law — a second offense working a forfeiture of his license. When this bill came up on third reading a number of its friends were absent. Mr. Evans asked that consideration of the bill be deferred. The "wets" refused to grant the request — the only time such request was refused during the entire session. In consequence Mr. Evans took the floor and held it during the rest of the legislative day, without any recess for lunch. Mr. Evans held the floor during the entire time, his friends rallying to his support with dilatory motions, which occasioned, all told, thirtyone roll calls. No similar filibuster ever occurred in the thirty-two sessions of the Nebraska legislature. A bill by Mr. Evans passed creating an advisory board of pardons, to hear evidence and report their findings to the governor. This law is expected to do away with the scandals so frequently occurring in the past in relation to pardons by giving the governor, the necessary information on which to act.
Mr. Evans was an earnest supporter of the initiative and referendum — proposed amendment to the constitution. The bill passed after a long and hard struggle, the "wet" element trying its utmost to make its provisions unworkable—-in which they almost, if not quite, succeeded. An employers' liability and workmen's compensation bill was introduced by Mr. Evans. This bill having been reported adversely from the committee, a resolution was introduced by Mr. Evans, which passed, authorizing the governor to appoint a commission to study the question and report a bill for introduction at the next session of the legislature. Mr. Evans has been appointed a member of this commission by Governor Aldrich. One of the hottest fights of the session occurred during the closing days over a bill to provide for a merger of telephone companies — in effect authorizing a gigantic telephone monopoly controlled by the Bell Company with J. P. Morgan at its head. It was first defeated in the house, the merger features of the bill being stricken out. These the senate restored and when the bill as thus amended came back to the house, the senate amendments were concurred in, after a hot fight led by Evans of Adams — the telephone lobby having in the meantime converted a number of members. Mr. Evans rallied the opposition and carried the fight before the governor in a hearing which lasted most of the day, the friends of the bill also participating in the discussion. Governor Aldrich vetoed the bill. The Ollis stock yards bill and the Katoue insurance bill, the latter requiring insurance companies to deposit their securities with the state auditor, were warmly
supported by Mr. Evans. At this session Mr. Evans was chairman of the republican organization, the candidate of his party for speaker of the house and was floor leader of the minority during the session. He was no less useful in measures that he opposed than in those he advocated. Mr. Evans is a natural and aggressive progressive. He was a consistent and persistent advocate of the direct primary, the abolition of the free pass, the reduction of passenger and freight rates, and all the progressive legislation accomplished in the session of 1907. One article which he wrote early in the campaign of 1906 was widely copied by the press of the state and aided materially in pledging candidates for the legislature to the things that were actually done at the following session. Mr. Evans is a member of the G. A. R., the Odd Fellows, and the Masons.3
