Please note: This surname has been spelled two different ways in the records I have researched - Zeigler and Ziegler. I have used the second spelling for my ancestors, although it may have been the first!

The notes on Philip and Ann Eliza Ziegler's family were taken from a piece of paper written in my great-grandmother's hand with the notation "copied from old Family Record."

If you are a researcher of these Zeigler lines, please contact me; perhaps we could exchange information!
