Charles Zimmeth was born September 1, 1888, the last child of August and Augusta Wilhelmina (Kleesaat/Cleasot/Clessot) Zimmeth.

His first wife was Josephine LaPierre. They were married in 1908 and she died in December 24, 1914 of an intestinal obstruction.

His second wife was Luetta Meyer. They were married in 1922 and had three children: John Zimmeth, Catherine Zimmeth Percival, and Marguerite Zimmeth Mack. All three children and their spouses are now deceased. Luetta died on December 20, 1931 at the age of 36 of tuberculosis, following unsuccessful surgery.

His third wife, Ruth Bowsher, was married four times previously. Her first husband was Albert S. Hessling. Ruth was 14 at the time of this marriage. They had one son, Maynard. Albert & Ruth divorced in 1918 less than 4 years after their marriage, and just after Maynard's second birthday. Albert retained custody of Maynard and he was eventually adopted by Albert's sister and brother-in-law.
Ruth's second (and third) husband was David Stanley. They were married and divorced and then remarried a few months later. Husband number four was Thomas Lloyd Moore. He committed bigamy when he married Ruth. She married Charles in 1944 in a civil ceremony. After her marriage to Moore was annulled, Charles and Ruth were married in the Catholic Church. Ruth died in 1990, eleven years after Charles.
