Sebastian,Solomon Zimmerman in Oley,PA
Posted by: Linda Date: November 24, 2000 at 14:19:32
  of 824



My Zimmerman line comes from Lehigh County/Maxatawny to Mahantongo to
Tremont/Pine Grove. I can't find the marriage record for Seth but 2 of his sons link
Annie Werfield as their mother on their death certificates and I have found her with him
in the census. I am trying to find a marriage record for Seth Zimmerman and Annie
Werfield. They are buried in the German Reformed Cemetery in Tremont. They had 8
children who must have been baptised or confirmed at a church in this
area-SOMEWHERE but I can find NOTHING! I would
appreciate any help - any help. I'll list the
children later... Seth's family the Zimmerman's traveled from Maxatawny (near the
Kutztown area) to Mahantango. Something happened that caused the sale of Abraham
SR.
(Seth's graet grandfather) and Abraham Jr.s
(Seth's grandfather) property. Abraham Jr.'s son, Solomon (Seth's father) then moved
to Tremont, Schuylkill County. with his wife Salome Zimmerman (nee Koehler). I only
know that Solomon was a miner due to the census. Then he had a profitable lumber
business later in life. Seth was a miner for sometime and then a produce dealer.
Solomon's daughter Rebecca married into the Strickler family of
Minersville. The Strickler family still reside in Schuylkill County. Solomon's wife was
Salome Koehler and her mother was
Susanna Hepler. The Hepler family also went to Mahantongo, Schuylkill County from
Lehigh County. There is a terrific web
site on Johan Casper Hepler who was a soldier in the Revolution. Abraham Zimmerman
married Margaret Berger. My
relative, a soldier in the Revolution, Abraham had a son Abraham who married Barbara
Worley back in the late 1700's. I
have extensive information on this family. I would like to talk to anyone who has
information on Zimmerman's in Treemont.

Seth dies in Tremont in 1902 and Annie moves to Philadephia with two kids, Alice and
Howard Zimmerman. I can find no records for any of her daughters in Philadelphia.
Can you please check to see if any of these names are in the area? Seth and Annie
Zimmerman have the following daughters born in Tremont, Schuykill County,
Pennsylvania in the late 1870's. NEVIL, FLINKS, STEIDLE, KAY in Tremont or
nearby?

According to Howard's will in 1939 all of his sisters are married. They are:

SALLIE ZIMMERMAN, b. 1870. . Sally's married name is Flinks. Sally Flinks

MARY ZIMMERMAN, b. 1875. Mary's married name is Mary Nevin.

BESSIE ZIMMERMAN, b. 1877. she became Bessie Steidle
>
> vi. CARRIE ZIMMERMAN, b. November 1880, Tremont, Pennsylvania. Carrie
marries Carrie Kay.

They have a sister Alice and brothers Harry, Charles and Howard ZIMMERMAN.
