I am the grandson of Caroline Dotterer who was born around 1872. She married Samuel B. Zimmerman of Norristown, PA. They had two children: John Harold b. 1890 and Bertha (Betty) b. 1893. Caroline and Samuel lived in Norristown, Samuel left the family in 1895, daughter Bertha lived with Caroline and son Harold, my dad went to live with his Aunt Anna and her husband Martin Farrell (who was a druggist in Norristown), until he was 16. My Dad John Harold, known as Jack told me he remembers his father picking him up one day when he was very little and kissing him on the cheek.
That was the last time he ever saw his dad. He never spoke of his mother, Caroline. I met my Aunt Betty, his sister, when I was in my twenties, she lived in New York and married James McKee later in life, she had no children.
I am retired now and am filling out an application to the Sons of the American Revolution. The form asked for my grandmother's birthdate and I really don't know much about her. If anyone has connections with relatives of Caroline, I would like to hear from you.
Robert O. Zimmerman
