The listing of emigres from Hallau, Canton Schaffhausen, in 1744 lists families of interest. Jerg Zimmerman and Hs Fotsch. In addition there is a Wildberger in the nearby village of Neunkirch - as well as another Zimmerman (Seb) in Trasadingen. All were listed as emigrants. A John Fotch and a George Zimmerman ended up living near each other in Augusta County, Virginia, - in that part that became Rockingham County. George Zimmerman/Carpenter married a stepdaughter of John Fotch/Fudge as his second wife. She was Ann Shutley. Any suggestion for research in Hallau would be welcome.
