William Hamilton Zimmerman, born 1865, Armstrong County, son of Abraham G. Zimmerman and Catherine Shrecengost.

Photo taken shortly before his death in 1882. From the Zimmerman Family History by Ruth V. Cogley: "according to Rosa Rupp, who is the daughter of Daniel Zimmerman, William Hamilton Zimmerman died in a logging accident on the Allegheny River, at about 17 years of age. Logs were often cut, and rolled into the water, to transport them where they were going. Teams of horses were also used to transport the logs and the finished lumber to the construction site."
