John Zettelmeyer was born about 1786 to Johann Martin and Margaret Zettelmeyer; he died 14 Mar 1857. About 1808 John married Elizabeth (surname unknown), who was born about 1787. The 1810 census for Windsor Twp, Berks Co PA shows that he was aged 26-45 and his wife was 16-26. In 1820 and 1830, they were in Greenwich Twp. The 1820 census shows that he and his wile were 26-45, and there was one male aged 10-16, and one male and two females under age 10. In 1830 he and his wife were 40-50 and there was one female under age 5 in their home. I have not located him in the 1840 census; in 1850 he was in Penn Twp, Berks Co. He gave his age as 64 and his occupation as farmer. He also listed real estate valued at $1,400. Elizabeth gave her age as 63. A daughter, Theresa, was age 26 and unmarried. In 1860. Elizabeth was back in Greenwich Twp, age 72, a widow, and listed personal property of $100. Theresa, age 28(?), was domestic help for her.

This census information tends to indicate that they had five children, two sons and three daughters. I have found the baptismal record for one son and I found one daughter listed with them in the 1850 census.
