Frederick John Zimmerman is my GGGG Grandfather. It looks like you cleared up the link between Frederick and my GGG Grandfather, James Notley (Born 1815).
I currently live in Germany and am trying to find any information on where the Zimmerman line originated from, or if they participated in the revolutionary war at all, but am at a loss. I don't know how to search for those types of military records, or even if Frederick's family was in the Lancaster area during that time. I can't seem to be able to search the 1800 census records very well.
I have emailed the Lancaster, PA Family History center but they need more information (such as their religion or a will--which, again, I have no idea how to search and find!)
I'd love to find out more information on Frederick John's parentage and heritage. If I can be of any help while over here in Europe, please let me know. We are 2 hours west of Frankfurt and will be here until August of 2020.
