Translation help by Robert Seal:
Word after father's name starts with an "M" but is difficult to decipher. Do you have a marriage or death record for Friedrich Zimmermann which should include his occupation?
First child's name is: Christoph Friedrich Zimmermann (1840-1865).
Robert Seal Note: Revisiting this, it's possible the father's occupation is "Weber" = weaver. However, if it is, the "W" in "Weber" looks more like the "M" in "Marg." in the next line as opposed to the "W" in "Wilhelm" in the last line. It still would be best if you can find another vital record for Friedrich Zimmermann to confirm whether his occupation is "Weber".Robert Seal note:
Word after father's name is "Weber" = weaver. (This is confirmed in his wife's 1847 death record.)
First child's name is: Christoph Friedrich Zimmermann (1840-1865).
