KILMER/LATHAM/ZIMMER - Almira Zimmer was born 16 May 1818 in Schoharie County, the daughter of Jacob G. Zimmer and Mariah Kilmer. Almira’s father died in 1919, followed by her mother in 1820, leaving her an orphan at the age of 2. I was told by a Kilmer descendant several years ago that Almira was then raised by Peter Zimmer. I believe he was Peter A. Zimmer, born 1770 in Schoharie County to Johan Adam Zimmer and Margaretha Maria Schaeffer. I believe Peter was married to Mary “Polly” Seeley, and they had other children of their own. In 1837 Almira Zimmer married Freeman Curtland Latham, who was born in New London County Connecticut, but later moved to Schoharie County. Almira and Curt Latham had 8 children, including George Zimmer Latham, born 24 January 1851 in Schoharie County. Meanwhile, the youngest child of George Henry Hilts and Maria Elizabetha Dominick was Jenette Hilts, born 5 November 1849 in Gallupville. Though Jenette's parents were living at the time, Jenette was listed in the household of Peter A. Zimmer and his wife Polly in the 1860 US Census, rather than her parents home. Evidently this was the same couple who had raised Almira Zimmer. On 10 January 1872, Jenette Hilts married Almira Zimmer’s son, George Zimmer Latham. I am wondering if any Latham, Zimmer or Hilts descendants know why Jenette Hilts was in the Zimmer household in 1860, and if it was, in fact, the same family that had raised Almira Zimmer Latham. Thanks for any help you can offer. Linda Tutt - posted 04-16
