I am also researching the Zimmer line. My Ggrandmother,Isabelle Mary Zimmer, married Thomas Thompson. Grandma Isabelle's parents were Adam Paul Zimmer and Margaret Funk. Adam Paul's parents were John Zimmer and Elizabeth Schoolcaft. Adam Paul was Christened 11 May 1828, High and Low Dutch Reformed Congregation,Schoharie,Schoharie, New York. I do not have anything on his parents. This is the information that I am seeking. My maiden name is Jackson. I also need info. on these lines connecting with the Zimmers. Jackson,Thompson,Dutch and Funk. Any info would be greatly appreciated. You can e-mail me at I will be happy to share with others the information that I have.

Have you tried Tioga Co., NY? Many Zimmers and Schoolcrafts went to Tioga Co. around 1830.

My great-grandmother was Eva (Zimmer) Pitcher, born May 15, 1842 at Newark Valley, NY, died January 6, 1900, same place. Her mother was Lucinda (Schoolcraft) Zimmer, born August 26, 1807, died June 13, 1886 at Newark Valley, NY. Do these names sound familiar to you?

Betsy: I have a Lucinda Schoolcraft, B-Aug 26,1807, Schoharie, NY. M-1825 to Peter B Zimmer,Schoharie,NY(son of Johannes (John) Zimmer and Azuba Hillegas, died Jun 15, 1904,NewarkValley,NY. Lucinda died Jun 13, 1884, Newark Valley, Tioga, NY. They had 10 children The Biography of Peter B. Zimmer says he was b.Sep 17 1808.
Lucinda's parents were Jacob J. Schoolcraft and Eva Catherine Zeli; Of the 10 children that Lucinda and Peter had for some reason I only have two listed. Do you have the others?

I believe our lines are related, we just have to tie them together. Please keep in touch.

Betsy: In looking again I think I found a tie on our lines.
Lucinda's father ,Jacob J Schoolcraft and Eva Catherina Zeli.
Jacob's parents: Jacob Schoolcraft and Maria Catherina Zimmer.
Your Jacob J Schoolcraft is a brother to my
4th great grandmother, Elizabeth Schoolcraft, that married John Zimmer..

Do you have family group sheets on these lines. I have some. Would you be willing to send me what you have, and I will send what I have to compare data.

Hi, Helen,

I am so excited to have someone confirm Azuba Hillegas and Peter B. Zimmer! And you say there is a biography of Peter? Please tell me how to find it.

The email I sent you earlier told you about Peter B. Zimmer's seven children, that I have listed. (If you know of other children, I would appreciate knowing of them.) I didn't go into the Schoolcraft connection in that email.

The way my family tree reads:
Peter B. Zimmer, born Sept. 11, 1805, Schoharie Co., NY, died June 15,m 1904, Newark Valley, NY.

He married Lucinda Schoolcraft, born August 26, 1807, died June 13, 1886, Newark Valley.

I am in contact with another person who thinks that Lucinda had a brother Paul, born 1812, son of Jacob and Catherine. His line descends from Paul.

I have added to my grandfather's tree the following information that I have gleaned from the web: Lucinda was the daughter of Jacob J. Schoolcraft(1783)Schoharie Co., NY, who was married to Catherine.

Jacob S. Schoolcraft, born NY in 1762 (?) was the father of Jacob J. Jacob S. married Maria Catherine Zimmer, born 1762, Schoharie County.

I don't have parents for Jacob S., but his grandfather was John Schoolcraft, grandmother was Maris Schaeffer, which I have seen spelled differently.

I don't know how accurate this last part is because my grandfather's tree only goes as far as Lucinda.

However, I do have some information on the Hilligas family, if you are interested. And I have more information on Peter B.'s brothers William and Solomon Zimmer and their children.

Please let me know about Peter B.'s biography. Our dates are a couple of years apart, but the month and days seem to be the same. My grandfather did his research in 1915, and communications were not so good in those days. Do you have backups for the dates you have?
