4. Dr. George Zimmerman

Group 19 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project -
Dr. George Zimmerman, b. Feb. 1779 in Washington County, MD  or PA?

I know that Dr. George Zimmerman came to Ohio in 1804 from the Washington County, PA area.   He had several children and the family has stayed in the area since 1805.  The little town of Zimmerman, Ohio was named after him.     I dont have any information about his father.   I know that some of his papers /writings were in German.   He was closely associated with the Shoup family in the area, his son married their daughter, and he knew them from PA.   The shoup family was originally from the Bern, Switzerland area.
