      Notes on Jacob Zimmerman (married Magdalena Bowe), extracted from the bio of his son George Zimmerman:
      Jacob Zimmerman was born in Germany and was seventeen years old [?1827] when he came to America and was at first employed on a farm in the State of New, York, where he remained for some time after he was married. When he came to Scott Township, Sandusky County, he bought eighty acres of land, to which he added 120 acres and of this he cleared 140 acres. He then returned to New York and lived there for a few years and followed farming, but later came back to his farm in Scott Township and resided here until his death, which occurred in April 1881. His burial was in Minkler Cemetery. He married Magdalena Bowe, a daughter of George Bowe. She survived until December, 1893. They were worthy members of the Evangelical Church. Jacob Zimmerman voted with the Republican party, but he was never willing to serve in office.
