Hi,

Do you know when he was born"

Who did he marry, when and where?

Do you know his mother's name?

There were several Caspar Zimmermans in Hesse in the early-mid 1800s and Hermann was a recurring name in all of the families, so it will require a bit more information to be sure we have the right one.
