Stu, the Jones County website mentions a Zimmerman family on the following

Subject: [IAJONES] Zimmerman Info Request
I received this last night. perhaps someone can help.
My name is Stuart Steele and for the past year I have
befriended a kindly old Korean War Veteran at the Sepulveda (Ca.)
Veterans Convalescent home. His name is Leo (Leonard) Zimmerman and
on his behalf I am trying to get old photos of Monticello downtown
where his adopted family had a hardware store in the 30's and into
the 50's, and even personal contact of people who might remember him
who can write to him. I saw that the school district has a
publication that is available for sale that might have something of
interest in it for Leo.
Leo will probably finish his journey at the facility and has no
access to computers, and not having children of his own I think I
might be his only regular visitor from the outside. My hope is to
make the time I spend with him on Sunday afternoons interesting. He
knows I am looking for a photo of the hardware store he grew up
helping his adopted dad in and he asked me today if I had any
luck. (It had a pool hall in the basement and a dance-hall upstairs.)
Any kind of leads would be super and thank you for your time
