    Nicholas & Katherine Zimmermann
    Milwaukee County, Wisconsin

    Paula Johnson-Marsolek shared the following information with the Zimmermann mailing list in January 2001. In particular Paula describes a double grave for Nicholas and Katherine Zimmermann which Paula found in the same cemetery as her ancestor Maria Elizabeth Zimmermann.

    "I was wondering if these Zimmermanns sounded familiar to anyone. My ggg grandmother was Maria Elizabetha Zimmermann. She was born February 22, 1799. Her husband was Heinrich Paul Noe (b. October 10, 1791, d. May 23, 1837). I don't know where Maria was born but Heinrich died in Webenheim, Pfalz, Germany. They were also married in Webenheim. The Noe family were Huguenots and moved from the Alsace Lorraine area of France to the Mittelbach and Zweibrücken area of Germany. Maria emigrated to Wisconsin in 1843 with her 2 children. Maria is buried in a very little cemetery in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

    In that same cemetery, and over a little from Maria, are the graves of Nicholas and Katherine Zimmermann. Nicholas' vitals are February 23, 1788, to April 14, 1874, and Katherine is Jan. 1 1801 to August 11, 1861. They share a headstone and it has "Mutter" and "Vater" on it. That also tells me that they had children but I have no idea as to who they might be. I'm just guessing but I believe their headstone is only 50 years old or so (according to the style) so I'm hoping that there are still descendants in the area.

    I don't know anything else about them but I'm wondering if Nicholas could be Maria's brother. They are the only Zimmermanns in the cemetery and the dates they were all born is pretty close to each other. I've written for their death certificates but no one has any record for them.

    So I'm wondering if any of these names sound familiar to anyone. Either in Wisconsin or in Germany. Or if anyone else thinks that they might be related like I'm thinking. And if anyone has any hints or suggestions, I would really really appreciate it!" :)
