From: "The Adam Zimmerman Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens - 2013
Adam and Elizabeth's fourth child was Heinrich Aron Zimmerman (Dec 1875 Minnesota – 1946 Waukegan, Illinois). He was called Aron. Sometimes his name is spelled Aaron and sometimes Arien. Here is a little about him from his obituary:

"Aaron Zimmerman, 72, of 2712 Edina Blvd., Zion, died yesterday ay Victory Memorial Hospital after a 12 day illness. He was born in Preston, Minn., and moved to Zion in 1914 from the state of Washington. A retired farmer, Mr. Zimmerman was affiliated with Masonic lodges in Rockford, Waukegan and Coolie Dam, Washington.
Mr. Zimmerman is survived by his wife, Hannah; two sons, Rollin of Chicago, and Wesley of Denver, Colo; two daughters, Mrs. Bernice Poulsen of Zion, and Mrs. Gladys Kreuschner of Kenosha, Wis.; one brother, George of Portland, Ore.; four sisters, Della and Margaret Zimmerman of Seattle, Wash.; Sarah Zimmerman of Portland., Ore., and Mrs. Emma Druschel of Long Beach, Calif., and eight grandchildren."

His granddaughter, Mary Alexander, shared the following:

"I got a copy of (Aaron's) land record in WA. He was a blacksmith, didn’t buy the land until 1910 and then moved to Zion (Illinois) in 1914 and rented his land. . . .Aaron died in April 1946 of prostate cancer. He and Hannah had come to visit us in Denver for Christmas in December 1945 when I was nine and that was the last time I saw him. He was a quiet person and can’t remember him stating his opinion or taking a stand on anything. Actually the only thing I really remember is he would let either my sister or me sit on his lap and went we weren’t expecting it he would spread his knees and we would almost fall – he thought that was funny."

Zion is a small town just up the road from where I lived as a teenager in Waukegan, Illinois. It had a famous lace factory where Aaron worked part time as a mechanic, probably after he retired from farming. By the time we moved to Waukegan in 1955 Uncle Aaron was dead. Some of his children were still in the vicinity but we never met them.

Odilie Wilhelmine Johanna Hannah Kraling:

Buried: Waukegan, Lake, Illinois 15

Notes:

From M. Alexander 10 Apr 2007: "My grandma Hannah had a beautiful flower garden in the back yard and a covered swing. We always parked in back by the garage when we went there and when we went in the back door there was a Hoosier-type cabinet on the back porch and quite often there would be rhubarb kuchen cooling on the shelf. Grandma had those depression clear glass dishes that came in boxes of soap – hers were yellow – my favorite color. I remember eating home made applesauce from the apple tree in the back yard from those dishes. My grandma was a great cook – many Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners were eaten there. She made the world’s best coleslaw – even my mom couldn’t duplicate it! Grandma made her own lye soap and she would personally wash our hands at the kitchen sink because we couldn’t reach it very well (and probably to keep us from slopping soapy water on the floor!).
Bernice (Wesley’s sister) and her husband (John Norman Poulsen (Uncle Jack to me)lived two houses south of Aaron and Hannah. "
