I am researching the Zeiter Ancestry from the area of Biel and Bern Switzerland and I have gotten back as far as 1749 in the Zeiter's lineage, that is 5 generations of the Zeiter clan. My Grand-Father, David John Zeiter emigrated to the USA in 1883 and his destination was Morriltn, Arkansas and then moved to St. Vincent, Arkansas, where my Father, Theodore David Zeiter was born. When he came to this country he had 3 children whose names were Simon, Gustav and Antonia Zeiter. After settling in Arkansas he lost everything in a fire and then moved to St. Louis and raised another 5 children named Theodore, Mary, Freida, Marie and David. He arrived here in this country around September 27, 1883 from Antwerp on the ship Pennland. My Grand-Father was from Biel Switzerland and he married Maria-Josepha Zimmermann on November 11,1877. If there is anyone out there who can assist me with more info tracing my lineage further into Switzerland I would greatly appreciate it.
