ZIMMERMAN, ZIMMERMANN posted by John R. Zimmerman on Thursday, April 2, 1998

I need help in trying to find my cousin Marie Louise ZIMMERMAN/ZIMMERMANN whom I met once in Union City, New Jersey in the 1940s. Some of my family in France is also quite anxious to find her. Marie Louise was b 28 Mar 1931 in Union City, NJ. Her father's name was Arnold ZIMMERMAN/ZIMMERMANN (1885-1981). Recall that Marie had a younger brother whose name I don't know. Marie probably married and so has changed her family name. Any clues about this family of Union City, NJ will be greatly appreciated.

BRUNNER, LAUGHLIN, MCLAUGHLIN, MCPEEK posted by Frank Brunner on Tuesday, April 14, 1998

BRUNNER, Joseph Anton lived in Bloomfield as of 1880 Census and was married to a Mary LAUGHLIN or MCLAUGHLIN. He was listed as a Wagon Manufacturer in the Newark Directories of that era. They had three sons, Joseph Francis, Charles, Theodore and a daughter Mary. Joseph Francis BRUNNER married Harriet MCPEEK and they lived in Caldwell. The MCPEEKs have a long history of living in Northern New Jersey going back to Patrick MCPEEK born circa 1710. In fact, there is a town in NW New Jersey named after MCPEEK. Much has been documented about the MCPEEKs. Any data relating to the BRUNNER or MCPEEK families would be most appreciated in light of the fact no burial sites have ever been found for Joseph Anton, Charles and Theodore. Any details on these family members would be appreciated.

SMIDT, SMITH posted by Adam Brown on Monday, April 20, 1998

I am trying to find a Maria SMITH who probably descended from the Dutch Reformed SMIDT family of Tappan, NY. I believe that she was either born or married on April 13, 1833. She reputedly lived in the area now within the confines of present-day Bogota which I believe was then Hackensack. I do not know her maiden name. Might she be mentioned in the Dutch Reform records to which you have access? Thank you for your help!
