Daniel Alexander Zimmerman (1 May 1833-25 Oct. 1861)

Daniel A. Zimmerman (listed as “A. D. Zimmerman” in the University Catalogue), was born at Darlington Court House, South Carolina. He was the son of Dr. John Perkins Zimmerman (1802-1863) and his wife, Mary Caroline DuBose (b. 1805). Daniel Zimmerman attended the University of Virginia in sessions 30-31 (1853-1855), then studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1856.

Dr. Zimmerman married Laura Virginia Law (1836-1915), and the couple had two children, Mary Elizabeth and Edward Zimmerman (d. young). I was not able to discover what Dr. Zimmerman died of. There are three Daniel Zimmermans from South Carolina listed in the records of Confederate service, but all of them survived after 1861.

Daniel and his wife and children are buried in the Law Cemetery, in Darlington County, SC.
