Note on John or Johann, John E. Zenner b. 1851 immigrated with Franz, father, and Maria, mother from Prussia abt. 1853.

John's wife Maria or Mary Wahlen died according to online records from Stuhlmiller's genealogy and Eisenman files in 1914. The Tenino obituary for John E. Zenners said that he "traveled west" sometime about 30 years ago circa 1930 obit. However, if one were to surf records of newspapers from Olympia, WA, Centralia in Lewis County, or Tenino, WA you may find that Cap may have remarried or was living with his daughter or other relatives. Genealogy Bank did provide a few clues. Researching there may prove to be helpful.

After the death of his wife, Maria Mary Wahlen, in October 1914, Johann or John E. Zenner traveled West. It is interesting to note that part of his family of Zenner's from Buffalo also moved at this time to Bradford, Pennsylvania. Frank Zenner and Flora Mae Beckwith moved to Bradford in 1913. One year earlier. And even earlier in 1897, after the death of George Joseph Zenner b. 1860, (John E. Zenner's little brother) widow Christine Campbell, moved to Pennsylvania, leaving her three sons at Father Bakers orphanage. John E. Zenner 's daughter was a nun living in Rochester, NY as sister Mary of St. Ann's of Rochester, NY and another daughter Helen Brug was also living in Buffalo in 1930. John's sister, Christine Barbera, b. 24 July 1870, was a nun entering the order in 7 Feb1893 at the Convent of Sisters of Good Shepard. The information did not yeild a location for this Convent so I am assuming it was in Buffalo, New York.. Francis Joseph Zenner b. 1858 was also living in Buffalo New York with his wife Magdalena Gieger. Francis was also a brother to John E. It is supposed that Frank Joseph changed his name to honor his uncle, Francis Joseph. Frank Joseph's baptismal records at St. Mary of Sorrows have his name listed as George Francis Zenner. And so there were a good many Zenner's living in Buffalo, New York when Christine Campbell left her three sons at Father Bakers Orphanage in 1897.

From Stuhlmiller's Genealogy John E. Zenner was living at 587 Broadway Street in Buffalo, New York. He purchased a burial plot Lot 108 Section D on November 19, 1897 from the United German and French Cemetery ( Link from NYERIE mailing list Vol. 3, Issue 222 June 30, 2008 [ added July 2, 2008 ] ), Mount Calvary Cemetery Inc,800 Pine Ridge Road, Cheektowaga, New York 14225. From the Mount Calvary Website - "United German & French Roman Catholic Cemetery was founded in 1859 by representatives of six Roman Catholic parishes in the city of Buffalo. The name was changed in 1982 to Mount Calvary Cemetery. Our founding name is now used to refer to our first & oldest cemetery." This plot was likely for his little brother, George Joseph Zenner as the date does match the time of George's death.

In the 1884 Buffalo City directory John E. Zenner was a printer and a stationer at 387 or 587 Broadway St., Buffalo, New York.

In 1900 Buffalo City directory John P. Zenner, brother to John E. Zenner and son of Franz Zenner was a real estate and insurance salesman living at 932 Gennessee St., Buffalo, New York. The transcriber lists that this is the only John living in Buffalo at the time (1900).

In 1910 Buffalo City directory John P. Zenner is said to be working as a notary republic and living at 39 Lowell Street, Buffalo, New York.
