I am looking for this Jacob Zimmerman and Mary Riley Zimmerman. Their parent especially. Any living descendants would be wonderfull.

Sam R. Zimmerman. Some of the oldest and best family traditions in upper South Carolina are represented in this young and prosperous business man and textile expert of Greenville, where he has had his home and business headquarters since 1906.

His great-grandfather Zimmerman came to South Carolina during the eighteenth century from Germany. The grandfather, Jacob Zimmerman, was born in 1798 at St. Matthews, then in Orangeburg County, now the county seat of Calhoun County. He married Mary Riley, a celebrated beauty, known as the "belle of Orangeburg." She was of Irish ancestry, and her mother, a Macauley, was born in Scotland. Jacob Zimmerman moved to upper Carolina in 1838 and bought Cedar Springs in the eastern part of Spartanburg County, living there until his death at the age of eighty-three. His brother, Maj. David Zimmerman, also lived at Cedar Springs. Their cousin, John Conrad Zimmerman, had preceded them to this section of the state, and in 1830 purchased Glenn Snrings in Spartanburg Countv, not far from Cedar Springs.

L. C. Zimmerman, who is a retired business man and farmer living at Greer, in Greenville County, and is the father of Sam R. Zimmerman, was born at St. Matthews, South Carolina, in 1838,
