Looking for the parents of Jacob ZIMMERMAN, born 1778, died 1845 in Union township, Schuylkill Co., PA. He married Christiana LABENBERG/LOWENBERG and had at least 15 children and many grandchildren. He is somehow related to the family of Emanual and Hannah ZIMMERMAN, and their children Roland, Henry, David, Esther, John, and Elizabeth. Supposedly he was one of the children, but these six were born in the very late 1790's or early 1800's. Some sources say Jacob was born in Berks County, PA. Other sources say the family came from New York to PA and then Emanuel returned later to New York State. Jacob was a Justice of the Peace form 1825 to 1845.

Charles F SHIVELY bn 1833 Germany, d 1873, buried Kossuth, OH md Magdelena (Lena) ZIMMERMAN, bn 1834, Germany, d 1917, Kossuth, OH. Their children were:
  • John Shively, bn 1855
  • Susan Shively, bn 1857
  • Levi T Shively, bn 1859, d 1890, buried Kossuth, OH md Rachel SAWMILLER
  • Jacob E Shively, bn 1861, d 1831, buried Ocala, FL md Ellen HARTER
  • Louis Shively, bn 1864
  • William H Shively, bn 1866
  • Emma J Shively, bn 1868, md Charles GESELLCHEN
  • Amelia Shively, bn 1869
  • Ella Shively, bn 1874

Lena stated in the 1890 census that she had 10 children. I can only find nine and she also says in the 1890 census that 5 of her children are still living. My understanding is that the family lived in LoganTwp, AuglaizeCo, OH, and that Charles Gesellchen (and Emma) owned a grocery store.
