Martin and Margaret Eckert

Updated October 7, 2006

About Our Family Research


Martin Eckert and Margaret Zimmerman were married in 1860 and raised a large family in Wood County, Ohio. Family members have always assumed that the couple were married in the home of Margaret's parents, Jacob and Magdalene Zimmerman, on their farm in nearby Sandusky County, but it turns out that the wedding actually took place in Monroe County, Michigan. The questions raised by this little discrepancy in the family's history have led to a whole series of puzzles, some of which will never be answered but which have been fun to try to track down. Here is the story of Martin and Margaret and their family, going back to their ancestors in Alsace in the 1700's.
