Sympathy Saturday - July 14

On July 14, 1871, in Lancaster, Erie, New York, Catherine Zimmeth nee Boegler died. She was born in Roeschwoog, Alsace, France to Christian Boegler and Anastasia Lacher. She married Josef Zimmeth in Roeschwoog on January 7, 1818. She was buried in St. Mary of  the Assumption cemetery in Lancaster.

The family immigrated to Lancaster before May 1839, as her youngest child, August, was born and baptized in Lancaster, and he was the only one of her children born in New York.

This is a picture of Catherine, probably taken in the late 1860s. The original was in pretty bad shape.
