Ernest L. Zimmerman Grave Marker

 

This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that Ernest L. Zimmerman served as a Private with the second New Jersey Infantry U.S. Army during the Spanish American War. Ernest L Zimmerman was born on April 11, 1875, so he would have been 23 years old when the Spanish-American War broke out in 1898. Ernest L. Zimmerman died on April 1, 1952 just ten days short of his 77th birthday.This confirms Ernest L. Zimmerman’s connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
