Thanks for your quick response. First, your information clears up some questions to only open additional ones.

The spelling of Zimmerman was sometime misspelled because of the German accent. This was the only time we found Simmerman spelling.

To the best of our knowledge, Elizabeth [Eliza] returned to Loudoun Co. to be near her extended family. That might mean the Fairhurst or the Zimmerman family. We do not know if she was reinstated into the Quaker Society.

Information found in the Fairhurst Forum in My GenForum, seems to suggest a Jeremiah Fairhurst family migtated from Loudoun Co to Ohio during that time period, however, at this point we cannot tell if it is the same family. So we've discounted that info for the time being.

If we understand the entry: 3O;208 Date 10 Nov 1826 Return to Court 11 Jun 1827. Eliza,wd/o Henry was living in a house on the estate, near the Goose Creek meeting house, adjcent to Bernard Taylor. Are we reading that correctly?

For the information about her being buried there, it was develope from other documents from that time period. Will have to research that info further. Could she have buried in what is now an unmarked grave? It is apparent the family was very properious. My gggrand father migtated to Wheeling, then Cleveland and finally to Dayton Ohio, Always in some sort of " Merchant" business. [Usually roadhouses or cafes]

Your information expand and clarifies already documented sources. We also cannot document her mother, Ann Slaughter.

Thanks again
