Additional Information

Henry Zimmerman:

Buried: Canby, Clackamas, OR 10

Notes:



Per Zimmerman history - Henry always lived in Canada. He was a large man. He started farming but lost the farm. He then went into the bee business, having as many as 400 swarms. He made good from the sale of honey for a long time.
The Canadian custom, adopted from England, expected the oldest son to care for the parents. When Henry lost his property, his mother, Elizabeth, went to stay with her son, Adam, at Preston, Minnesota.

From "The Christian Zimmerman Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens 2013:
The first child of Christian and Elizabeth Zimmerman was Johann Heinrich Zimmerman, called Henry, (1835 Canada – 1909 USA), the oldest. He married Mary Krusp in Canada in 1856. Mary's family had also come from Germany and settled first near the Zimmermans in Canada and later near the Zimmermans in Minnesota.

After Christian died the family ran the farm together for awhile. Then the church decided the farm should be Henry's property. He did not do well. Cousin Rolland tells us:

Henry started farming but lost the farm. He then went into the bee business, having as high as 400 swarms. He made good from the sale of honey for a long time. Canadian custom (adopted from England) expected oldest son to care for parents. When he lost his property his mother, Elizabeth, went to stay with other children at Preston, Minnesota.

Annie Marie adds:

Whatever property (Elizabeth) may have had was lost in some way through Henry's mismanagement...

Henry and Mary had a family of eight children; six boys, two girls. All married. One, Will, married the same woman twice! Three never had children, but the other five had a total of 11 children. All settled in Washington or California except Albert, the youngest. He moved to Australia and became very wealthy in the import-export business until he lost it all in the run-up to WWII.

There is some question of where Henry died. His great-grand-nephew Gordon Zimmerman says he has seen this Henry's grave at Canby Oregon. Annie Marie Zimmerman Nelson says this Henry Zimmerman is buried in New Mexico where he died while he was staying with a daughter. Another descendant, Katie Allen, says this Henry died in Watsonville, California, the same as his wife.

Mary E. Crasp, Krusp:

Buried: Watsonville, California

Notes:



Anna Zimmerman Nelson's History says "Krusp."

    Chap. 1; p. 4 After Henry was married he built a brick home for himself, but my grandmother continued to live in the old house. Sometime later Henry sold the place to a Mr. Strasser and my grandmother cvame to the United States to live with some of her children (most were living in Minnesota.) She seemed to be grieved because Henry did not succeed as well on the place as she thought he should. Whatever property she may have had was lost in some way through Henry's mismanagement.

    Chap 3; p. 12 - My father's oldest brother Henry lived near Sebringville,Ontario, Canada for quite a number of years after he married. Then he moved onto a farm at Downie, four miles from Stratford, and then later into the town of Rodney. In his old age he came west to be with his children and lived in Watsonville, california. His wife died in January, three months before they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, which was to have taken place April 9, 1906. A year or two later, at the age of 73, Uncle Henry passed quietly away, there being no apparent cause of his death except old age.




    1952 Update
    Chap. 6; p. 3 - All of Uncle Henry's children except Albert, the youngest, who went to Australia, came to the
    state of Washington, usually about the time they were of age and from there scattered to various parts of
    the West. Edward, the next to the youngest in this family of eight children is the only one now living.
    For many years he lived in Watsonville, California where he was the operator of a creamery of which he
    owned half interest. When Uncle Henry first came to California, he made his home with this son until the
    death of his wife. Some years later when ill health began to trouble Edward a bit, he sold his interest in
    the creamery and moved to Vallejo, where he took a job with the government. Then because of his age he
    gave up his government job and became the caretaker of the Presbyterian Church of which they were
    members. Later on account of failing health they moved to Cloverdale, California. They bought a nice

    home there and are living there now. Of late, he is an invalid, suffering from a stroke which was brought
    on by a fall. It has affected his ability to talk and move about. It makes one feel sorry to see him carry
    this kind of a cross, but he never complains about anything and just makes the best of it. He has two
    daughters, Lucille and Iva, who now have families of their own. Both girls attended San Jose State
    College. Lucille after graduating taught school for five years before her marriage to Edwin Schleuter.
    She now lives in San Anselmo, California. She has two children, Bill and Gary. Iva, after doing college
    work in San Jose, went into training at Merritt Hospital in Oakland and graduated from there in 1938.
    She is married to Louis Jacobsen and lives in Salem, Oregon. She has three children, Roger, Carol, and
    Shirley.

    John, the oldest in Uncle Henry's family, lived in eastern Washington on a large wheat farm.
    Death came to him in 1938 at the age of eighty-two of a heart attack. He had two daughters, Blessing and
    Margaret. Blessing is the only one now living of John's family.

    I never became much acquainted with Dan, Peter, or Will and know very little about them except
    that Dan lived in or near Everett, Washington; that he had no children and that he died of heart trouble in
    1936 at the age of seventy-eight.

    Will developed a tumor of the brain which brought on other complications and caused his death in
    1932 at the age of 69. He had one son, Sidney, who lives in Seattle.

    Peter lived in Everett, Washington. He had four children, Henry, Edna, Clarence and Albert. He
    passed away in 1933 at the age of seventy-two. He was confined to his bed for a long time before his
    death with a creeping paralysis.

    Lydia married Will Rice who taught school near Watsonville, California, when they first came to
    California. Later he secured a job in a government office and they lived in Oakland, California most of
    the time, where they bought a nice little home. They left the Methodist Church where they were attending
    and became very devoted Christian Scientists. She passed away in 1948 at the age of seventy-nine.
    Death was caused by cancer of the kidney. They never had any children. It was here that Uncle Henry's
    wife died while on a visit with her daughter Lydia, but she is buried in Watsonville.

    Mary Ann, the older of the two girls, was married to Otis Schleuter, who had a position as
    trainmaster with the Santa Fe Railroad Co., for whom he worked for over fifty years. He is now retired
    and lives in Cloverdale, California. It was here that Mary Ann passed away in 1950 from cancer of the
    liver, at the age of eighty-four. After the death of Uncle Henry's wife, Mary Ann, who was then living in
    New Mexico, came and got her father that he might live with her. So it came about that Uncle Henry died
    and is buried in New Mexico.

    Albert is the youngest in the family. He left the old home in Canada, and went to Australia, where
    he acquired a fortune in the exporting and importing business, most of which he lost in World War II in
    the trouble with Japan. He had two children, George and June. He died in 1936 at the age of sixty-two.

  13. Ancestry.com, Travel info for John Dennstedt family.

    1840s - The Dennstedt and Krusp families came from Grossengottern, Sachsen, Deutschland to Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, which is about 18 miles west of the railroad town of Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Grossengottern is NE of Frankfurt am Main and North of Gotha. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gro%C3%9Fengottern



    The following is a summary of written memories by Fred Dennstedt (son of Charles Dennstedt, oldest son of John E. and Minnie [Krusp] ):
    1863-64 - John E. Dennstedt and Wm. Krusp (probably cousin to his wife, Wilhelmina) and their families took a journey. They:
    1. drove a team and wagon to Port Sarnia, Ontario, Canada
    2. They sold the team and wagon
    3. Crossed the river via ferry to Port Huron, Michigan
    4. From there took a train to Chicago, Illinois and on to LaCrosse, Wisconsin
    5. Steamboat to Winona, Minnesota
    6. Train to St. Charles, Minnesota
    7. Stage to Preston, Minnesota8. Arrived October, 1864



    Also according to Fred, John E. left a half-brother, named Christ, in Seberingville, Ontario, Canada. Sixty years later (~ 1904) he moved to Hale, Michigan. He had four boys: George, John, Sam, and William. William was in Tawas City, Michigan in 1967.



    1863 - The Kleimenhagen Family and Clara Schmidt came from Schmalkalden District, Thuringen State, Deutschland about 1863. Herrenbreitungen, Fambach (Parish), Estate Winne are little villages surrounding Schmalkalden, and just south of Gotha.One story is that Clara came with girlfriends, landing in New York and taking the train across the country to the Preston, Minnesota area.



    Another story is that she came with the Kleimenhagen family possibly as a maid/mother’s helper. The rest of Clara Schmidt’s family stayed in Germany according to her obituary.



    Johanna Kleimenhagen became John E. Dennstedt’s wife after Minnie died.Clara Schmidt became the wife of Charles Dennstedt (son of John E.)

    1888 – John E. Dennstedt, his wife and unmarried children moved to Winfield Township, Renville County, Minnesota.







    Dennstedt - Johann Ernst and Johann Gerhardt Dennstedt were first cousins. According to Dale Bast these men crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to America in ~ 1845 in their own homemade sailboat. (Seems almost impossible) They took up residence in Ellice Township in southwestern Ontario in the vicinity of what was to become the village of Wartburg.




    They established themselves and sent word back to Grossengottern that they should come to the new land. Johann Friedrich (father of Johann Ernst), his wife, Anna Maria and sons George Heinrich (17), Friedrich Wilhelm (5) and Christian Dennstedt (1) and several other families (including Kruspe) came and established farms. They all continued to prosper. Sometime around 1860 a rift begins to appear in the families. No one knows the reason for the rift and split, but in 1864 Johann Ernst Dennstedt and William Krupse pack up their families and journey to Minnesota. Then George Heinrich Dennstedt moves his family to Waterloo County. No contact was maintained and the split became final. One hundred plus years later we are trying to reconnect.




    William Kruspe, who emigrated to Minnesota with John Ernest and Minnie Dennstedt, is thought to be a brother-in-law. Records cannot be found to verify this. On early census records and in the cemetery in Preston, his mother is given as “Christena Kruspe”. This would more likely make him a first cousin to Minnie.




    First cousins probably married sisters. Dale’s research indicates that the parents of Maria Louisa Elizabeth Kruspe (1822-1909) were John G. Kruspe (c. 1788-1861) and Anna Maria (c. 1791-1873). Elizabeth married Johann Gerhardt Denstedt about 1852.




    I found a marriage index notation that indicates that they were also the parents of Wilhelmina “Minnie” Kruspe (c.1832-1868). Minnie married Johann Ernst Dennstedt. This same notation gives a marriage date of November 16, 1852 for Minnie and John E. Dennstedt.




    Both families had children in 1853, possibly the first Dennstedt people born in North America.



    The following is a summary of written memories by Fred Dennstedt (son of Charles Dennstedt, oldest son of John E. and Minnie [Kruspe] ):




    1863-64 - John E. Dennstedt and Wm. Kruspe (brother-in-law, probably brother to his wife, Wilhelmina) and their families took a journey. They:

    Lydia married Will Rice who taught school near Watsonville, California, when they first came to
    California. Later he secured a job in a government office and they lived in Oakland, California most of
    the time, where they bought a nice little home. They left the Methodist Church where they were attending
    and became very devoted Christian Scientists. She passed away in 1948 at the age of seventy-nine.
    Death was caused by cancer of the kidney. They never had any children. It was here that Uncle Henry's
    wife died while on a visit with her daughter Lydia, but she is buried in Watsonville.

    1952 update
    Edward, the next to the youngest in this family of eight children is the only one now living.
    For many years he lived in Watsonville, California where he was the operator of a creamery of which he
    owned half interest. When Uncle Henry first came to California, he made his home with this son until the
    death of his wife. Some years later when ill health began to trouble Edward a bit, he sold his interest in
    the creamery and moved to Vallejo, where he took a job with the government. Then because of his age he
    gave up his government job and became the caretaker of the Presbyterian Church of which they were
    members. Later on account of failing health they moved to Cloverdale, California. They bought a nice
    home there and are living there now. Of late, he is an invalid, suffering from a stroke which was brought
    on by a fall. It has affected his ability to talk and move about. It makes one feel sorry to see him carry
    this kind of a cross, but he never complains about anything and just makes the best of it. He has two
    daughters.
