Phillip Jakob Zollinger was born in 1805 in Bobingen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany, the son of Johann Jakob Zollinger and Klara Winckemann. He married Katharina Schmidt in 1836 in Bobingen. She was born in 1809 in Duttweiler, Rheinland-Pfalz, daughter of Sebastion Schmidt. They emigrated to the United States, possibly as early as 1842, first to Chenango, New York. By 1860, they had settled in Dodge County, Wisconsin, where Phillip worked as a farmer. Phillip died in 1888.

I can’t possibly share all of my family photographs here. Instead, I’ve chosen a select few favorites, mainly group photos. More pictures, particularly of individuals, can be found through my Thal-Gephart Family Tree accessible through my Ancestry profile. I am always looking for more pictures. If you have any to share, please contact me.
