The research below is ALL from Zettlemoyer expert  Harry Wilson.  He wrote the book on the Zettlemoyers.  I tend to beleive his research is spot on, but will be heading to Montour Co this summer to see what else I can dig up.  John and Catherine are buried in Oak Grove Trinity Lutheran Cemetery, hopefully when I go to photograph the tombstones there will be some dates on them.  :-)

John Zettelmeyer was born about 1810 to John and Elizabeth Zettelmeyer. He married Catherine (surname unknown), who was born about 1811. I believe he was the first son of John and Elizabeth. The 1850 Albany Twp, Berks Co PA census gave his and his wife’s ages as 40. Daughter(?) Catharine, 18, had married a Hendricks during the year. Other children were Mary, 15; Elizabeth, 12; Elvina, 10; Hannah, 8; Martin, 7; Lydia, 6; Lucinda, 5; and Cordelia, 4. In the 1860 census for Albany Twp, Berks Co PA, he gave his age as 50 and his wife was 49. John was a farmer, with $3,000 of real property and $800 of personal property. Attempting to reconcile the names in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, they may have had nine children:

  1. Catharine Zettlemoyer—born about 1832. She married (given name unknown) Hendricks.

  2. Mary Priscilla Zettlemoyer—born about 1835.

  3. Elizabeth Susanna Zettlemoyer—born about 1838.

  4. Elvina Zettlemoyer—born about 1840.

  5. Hannah Zettlemoyer—born about 1842.

  6. John Martin Zettlemoyer—born about 1843. He may have been the John Zettlemoyer who was listed in the 1870 Albany Twp census as age 22 as a day laborer, with $200 personal property, a wife, Elizabeth, age 21, and children Franklin, 3, and Elvira, 1. Ages given from one census to another vary so much that he could be that person.

  7. Lydia Zettlemoyer—born about 1844.

  8. Lucinda Zettlemoyer—born about 1845.

  9. Cordelia Zettlemoyer—born about 1846.
