RE: Johann Peter Timmerman
Dorothy, you have entered the most contested area of the origins of the Timmerman family of Edgefield County, SC. Dr. Connie TIMMERMAN McNeill and Claude Charles (Chuck) Timmerman have been at odds for many years and I have agreed most fully with Connie on the genealogy. Chuck is "Doonboggle" and I assume that he is also the "Anonymous". You will have to decide what you believe, but the below is what we believe is the first family of Frederick Wilheim Zimmerman [Timmerman]:

Frederick Wilheim (William) Zimmerman (b. 3/30/1730 Thurgen Dussenhaffen Evangelisch Switzerland, m. Margaretha Elizabetha 33737 (b. 1736 Germany), d. 10/29/1779 Edgefield SC) Emigrated to Charles Town, now Charleston, SC in 1764
A. Anna Zimmerman 33740 (b. 1755 Thurgen Switzerland, d. Edgefield SC)
B. Henry Wilhelm [William] Zimmerman, Sr. 11662 (b. 1758 Thurgen Switzerland, d. 1837 Edgefield SC)[1800][1810][1820]
C. George Zimmerman 33741 (b. 1761 Thurgen Switzerland, d. Edgefield SC)
D. Johann Peter Zimmerman 11663 (b. 12/19/1764 Charleston SC, d. 5/14/1849 Edgefield SC unm)[1800][1810][1820] Lived/w Jacob Brother
E. Jacob Zimmerman 11659 (b. 1768 Edgefield SC, d. 10/15/1826 Edgefield SC)[1800][1810][1820](m. Elizabeth Clegg 11660 (b. 1778 Edgefield SC, d. 8/10/1860 Edgefield SC)[d/o Barbara Maria Flick & Samuel Campbell Clegg], 1794 Edgefield SC) Elizabeth [1850][1860] Timmerman Cem Edgefield SC

It was Jacob, the individual that I posted that was b. 1768 in Edgefield District, SC. Johann Peter was born 1764 in Charleston SC upon arrival of his parents.

For the reasons above, I will not change the DOB for Jacob Timmerman to 1764.

Yes, Ransom Hodges Timmerman married second to Georgianne Elizabeth HEAD. Their children are Pope Norris Timmerman, Sr. and Jesse Ransom Timmerman. If you look at Find A Grave 117768241, you will see both wives. Go to Find A Grave 88587071 and you will see the children.

Ransom Hodges Timmerman 11627 (b. 2/1/1806 Edgefield SC, m.1. Lydia Judy Bledsoe 11628 (b. 12/28/1805 Edgefield SC, d. 4/2/1862 Edgefield SC)[d/o Lydia Douglass & Bartlett Bledsoe] Timmerman Cem, 1827 Edgefield SC)[1850][1860](2.

RE: Swisher-Swymeler - Fairview Cem
As far as I can remember, those were the only names on that monument -- except obviously I believe Swisher was carved on it somewhere. The problem is that I don't have a photo of the surname on it, or a note, though I wouldn't have put the memorials up with that surname if I wasn't sure at the time it was the right one. As soon as the snow has melted off, I will go up and have another look; it is right near one of the roads so even if the place is muddy from the snow melt, it ought be pretty accessible. I knew when I put the memorials up that there would be questions, and that is fine with me; I wanted them to be found by their family; the monument itself is kind of forlorn in a way.

FWIW, I have found a "foreign" family with one of my surnames. They lived in Chester County long enough to bury two children here then went back to Michigan. Figuring them out too quite a bit of work.

RE: Swisher-Swymeler - Fairview Cem
If Emarine and Louetta are daughters of Laura Swymelar, then she had Emarine at the age of 11 and Louetta at the age of 14. I don't think that is too likely, which is why I guessed that they, Laura and Samuel were all siblings. It is, unfortunately only a guess, but it was the best I could come up with give the data on the memorial.

RE: Swisher - Fairview Cemetery, Coatesville
I've been told by someone in the Fairview cemetery office that the early records for that cemetery are not complete, particularly for the earlier dates. I record what I see. If there is not a photo attached to a memorial I have posted, you can request a photo and I will add it to the memorial. In the case of your inquiry, I posted photos on the memorials for Emarine and Louetta as well as Samuel Swisher and Laura Swymelar, all of whom are listed on the same memorial.

RE: Swisher - Fairview Cemetery, Coatesville
Please check the memorials for the two Swishers, also those of Laura Swymelar and Samuel Swisher. Those names were all on the same monument, and my best guess is that Louetta and Emarine were Swishers along with Samuel, and that Laura's maiden name was Swisher.

RE: James Roland Cowan
It appears from what I am seeing today that James Roland Cowan's Memorial listing was made by one
DK O'Neill Ward Neff whom has also posted a copy of James Missouri State Death Certificate which states his father was Andrew Cowan of Pennsylvania.
Of course you may have already figured that out since this Message is almost a month old and I just saw it today,(2-12-14).
