Birth Name Zimmerman, Anna M.
Gender female
Age at Death 53 years, 7 months, 28 days


Grave stone says 1895, but both Zimmerman books say 1894, as does Marty's genealogy. There is some suspicion from Anna Mae that Grandpa Ressler simply got the year wrong.

The O'er Stormy Seas book reproduces the family bible entry, where it says
"Anna M. Zimmerman, Born December 9th, 1894 at 11:30 AM. In East Earl Township, Lanc. Co., Pa., Sign Capricorn." (p. 109)

[Astronomer's complaint: unlike the Sechrist Bible that used the lunar signs from the Farmer's Almanac, I can't explain this sign. To an astronomer, the moon was within the boundaries of Aries at the time, 90° away from Capricornus, and Aries agrees with various online calculators I've tried. The sun was technically in Ophiuchus, but the standard solar Zodiacal sign would have been Sagittarius; still,that is nearly 60° away from Aries in the other direction. So I haven't a clue.]


Event Date Place Description Sources
Birth 9 December 1894 East Earl Twp., Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, United States of America    
Event Note

An older source, not sure whose, said she was born in Caernarvon Twp. I think the explanation is that the farm split over the East Earl/Caernarvon Twp border at the time (no longer the case), and that the house was in East Earl and the barn in Caernarvon.

Death 6 August 1948 Ephrata Twp., Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, United States of America    
Burial   Grube and Anna Ressler Burial, Mohler Brethren Cemetery, Ephrata, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, United States of America
