Zimmerman Family

First Generation

Johann Christian Zimmerman was born Nov 4, 1726 in Hof, Nassau-Dillenburg, Germany, and died Mar 14, 1793 in Friedberg NC. He immigrated on the Neptune in September 1751, and in 1758 married the widow Anna Catharina Meyer Jensen (1739-1808), daughter of Matthias Meyer & Anna Barbara Binckele (who later married Johann Valentin Frey). Christian and Catharina moved from PA to NC in 1758. There they bought 570 acres near the Friedberg Meeting House on the south side of Frey's Creek adjacent to settler Adam Spach's property. Moravian records indicate that Christian and Catharina were threatened by Indians shortly after their arrival and were invited by Br. August Gottlieb Spangenberg to take shelter in the fort at Bethabara in 1760 for several months.
