Is there any place that has birth records this far back? I can find these people later, (1850) on census's in other New York Co.'s but no proof yet that they are related. Is there any way to search earlier census's, or do they just list the head of household and not the children's names?

I believe she was listed in the 1870 US Census in the household of Joseph Zeh and Julia Ann Mattice. Joseph Zeh was Peter's older brother. This would have been the time that her mother gave birth to her younger brother, Charles Zeh. Kate died in 1872, and Peter Zeh remarried Margaret Amelia Luckey in 1873. In the 1875 New York Census Nettie was living in the household of Peter and Margaret A. with Charles and two step-brothers. There is a grave in the Zeh Family Cemetery for Nettie Zeh, born 1868 and died 1879, but "Nittie" Zeh is listed again in the 1880 Census in her father's household. She seems to disappear after 1880, and I am wondering if it is her grave in the Zeh Family Cemetery. The biography for Nettie Zeh on the site list Joseph and Julia Zeh as her parents, but there is no evidence that I have found that they had a daughter named Nettie, other than the 1870 Census.

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
