Anna Maria Lutz Zimmerman

George Zimmerman Sr.

was born Oct. 7, 1810 near Zweibruecken, Rhein Kreis, Germany. He 
died Friday morning, Apr. 28, 1905, at the family home several miles 
north of Perry, Pike County, Illinois, aged 94 years, 6 months,

Anna Maria Lutz

was born Mar. 9, 1817 in Ornbach, Hessen Kassel, Germany, and came 
to America in 1835. She died Saturday evening, Dec. 19, 1903, also at 
the family home north of Perry, Illinois, aged 86 years, 9 months, 
and 10 days.

At the time of their deaths they were staying with their youngest 
son William and his family who were then living at the old farm home 
where their parents had started married life in 1837, having made 
their home with this son for 18 years.

They came to Perry, Pike County, Illinois in 1837, where they resided 
until their death. Father and Mother Zimmerman were devout Christian 
people, respected and beloved by all who knew them. For a time they 
were members of the Perry Presbyterian church, but in 1850 they became 
members of the Zion German M.E. Church and remained faithful to it 
until God called them to their Heavenly Home. Both burials are at the 
Hebron Cemetery approximately 5 miles north of Perry.
To them were born eight children, namely:
