This "Connection" comes to us from Jim
Mosimann, who writes,
"Searching on Aimar in your articles,
I found one [Aimar?] that
refers to Aimar's drug store in Charleston, S.C., where a meeting was held
by someone named RABB. The drugstore in question was founded by
George Washington Aimar born on October 4, 1827, and still alive and
running the drugstore in 1870, the time of your article. G. W. Aimar was
the younger brother of my great-grandfather, Charles Pons Aimar ( born
February 2, 1826). These two brothers married sisters, Marie Octavie
Picault and Leonide Victoire Picault, respectively. Briefly, you can
remove your question mark from "Aimar?." If you wish, you could add the
brackets [G. W.] You have the correct spelling, and it is in fact Aimar's
drugstore, which is now closed, but was still open in the 1940's when I
was in my teens.
Regards, Jim Mosimann"
Thanks for the extra information, Jim!
