My grandfather was Philip Ross Zimmerman DOB 1888-DOD 1968). He was reportedly born in Snow Shoe and was an only child. Some say that, some say Williamsport area or Jersey Shore. I realise they are different areas. The fact is, his children (my mother)have no info about him prior to his moving to Indiana Co. (to work in the mines)back in the early 1920's. No one else knows either. His obituary says he was born in Snow Shoe, but there is some family descrepancy about that. His parents were Joseph Zimmerman and Catherine Coffman. On his marriage application, made in Westmoreland Co., it says both parents were from Williamsport. I can't find them there in any census. His application for a social security number says his mother was Ellen Campbell and she was from Jersey Shore. I need a look up in the courthouse for their marriage license, or his birth record or their death records. Maybe they lived in Williamsport and she gave birth in Snow Shoe, but I can't find what happened to them. My mother said he never talked about his parents and she never met them. It is very puzzling to me and I need to know. If you have no info, just let me know and I will continue to try other counties. Thank you in advance, BS.
