2. Jeremiah B. Zander. He was born in Troy, NY, abt 1804. Died on 13 Aug 1863 in Milwaukee, WI. Buried in Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee, WI. Occupation: Bookkeeper.

Daily Milwaukee News, Aug. 14, 1863:
Death of J. B. Zander. – On last Wednesday night at 12 o’clock J. B. Zander, one of the first settlers of Milwaukee, died of paralysis, at his residence in the Fifth Ward. Mr. Zander came to this city in 1836, and has resided here constantly since that time. He held the office of deputy clerk of the Circuit Court for 15 years or more, and it will be difficult to find a man to fill that position who is so well qualified to perform its duties. Few men here were more thoroughly acquainted with the early history, social and political, of the city and State, than was Mr. Zander. He had a very large circle of acquaintances and friends who will most sincerely mourn his departure. Moving in the large circle he did and taking an active part in the exciting political contests of the period during which he has lived in Wisconsin, it would be strange indeed if he had no enemies; still we may venture the opinion that he had as few as any other man in like circumstances, and that his worst enemy was himself.

On 3 Feb 1835 Jeremiah B. married Ellen F. Brown in Troy, NY. She was born in Massachusetts abt 1811. Died on 6 Apr 1880 in Milwaukee, WI., Buried in Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee, WI.
