Born about 1826, probably in Germany, Christ or Christian Brickman married Catherine Zimmeth my great grandaunt and sister of August Zimmeth, my great grandfather. Catherine died about June 14, 1863, buried on June 15, 1853. While it appears she had a Catholic funeral (records in Diocese of Toledo church records) she apparently was not buried in the Catholic cemetery. This would lead me to believe that she was buried with her husband, who probably was not Catholic.
After her death, some of her children can be found with her parents on the 1865 New York State Census. Christian Brickman died on August 27, 1881 in or near Sandusky, Ohio.
