This couple were my first cousins twice removed. They, therefore, were first cousins to each other. Francis Joseph Basher/Bescher was the son of George Bescher and Marianna Zimmeth and Josephine Zimmeth was the daughter of Michael Zimmeth/Simmet/Simmeth and Catherine Eisenmann. Marianna and Michael, were of course brother and sister and were two of the siblings of my great-grandfather, August Zimmeth.
Frank and Josephine were married December 15, 1887 in Lancaster, Erie, New York.
