Zoll Family Genealogy Forum
Sorry it took me so long to answer you. Yes, there is a Zoll-Diemer connection in Ohio. Elizabeth Diemer was the second wife of Josiah Zoll. Josiah has been a very hard man to find. He was the son of Jacob and Mary Ann (Alspach) Zoll. His first wife was Elizabeth Korst. I didn't know much about him until the last few weeks when I answered queries about the Zoll family. However, I do know a fair amount about the family. My problem is finding the link between Jacob Zoll, who was born in 1793, to his parents. I know he was born in Pennsylvania, but I don't know where. There were other Zoll's in Pennsylvania, and many assume he was the son of Jacob Zoll born in 1743, but I don't believe he is. Jacob (1743) did have a son Jacob, in fact he had two sons Jacob. It says in his Bible records that the first one died at the time he was born in 1773. A second son was born in 1777. His wife died at the time of their son, Solomans, birth in 1791. Unless Jacob (1743) married a second time, our Jacob was not his son. Another Zoll in Pennsylvania at the time was William. He, too, had a son Jacob, also born in 1777, (there are a few months difference in their birthdays) and he went to Missouri. The other Zolls in Pennsylvania may have been his parents, but their ages seem off. Obviously, one of them has to be, or perhaps Jacob was in Pennsylvania from the time he was an infant and assumed he was born there. I just plain don't know. Does anybody know?
Is any of this helpful to you? If so, I can fill you in on the Zolls in Ohio, and the Alspach family.
