My Anna M. Zinkand was born on 26 July 1869 in Baltimore. Her death certificate gives her father as John ZINKAND and her mother as Anna HAUSMAN, both of whom were born in Germany. Not sure where the info came from, though, as the informant was listed as "hospital records" instead of an individual.
I cannot find the family in 1870, but have found a John ZINKAND in Baltimore in 1880 in District 19. The enumeration is for John age 43 born in Bavaria, wife Nathalia age 37 born in Baden, and their children all born in Maryland. The children are Antone age 15, A. Maria age 11, Natalia age 8, Philip age 5, and Leanter age 3.
In 1900 I find John again, this time in Baltimore City Ward 5. He is widowed by this time, and indicates he arrived in the U.S. in 1866 and is a naturalized citizen. With him are sons Phillip and Leonard.
I believe this may be the family of my Anna, as she had a daughter named Irma Natalia by her second husband, Germain GEARSON.
Am looking to connect with anyone researching this John ZINKAND to share information.
