Joseph Zimmeth, who was my great-grandfather's brother, married Magdalena Schmalz on February 26, 1878 in Mankato, Minnesota. Joseph was born in 1834 in Roeschwoog, Alsace, France. Magdalena was born in 1859 in New York.
Joseph is listed in deeds in Michigan in the 1860s and 1870s. How he ended up in Minnesota, I do not know. He died one week after their 20th wedding anniversary.
