(Preface, 



In the following record we have given such in- 
'^ formation as could be obtained in the different lines 
of our widely scattered family. We have done con- 
siderable traveling to gather data and have spent 
^ much time in correspondence. Many have manifest- 
^^ ed quite an interest and answered our inquiries 
promptly, while others were either indifferent or 
handi-capped in one way or another, so that we some- 
^^ times had to write frequently to the same party for 
^ the desired information. Sometimes when the in- 
formation did come we had to return it to have dis- 
crepancis filled out, corrections made, or have it alto- 
gether recast. 

After all this had been accomplished and the 
material was before us, it was necessary to decide 
upon a plan to arrange the same in a way so that all 
might easily and readily trace their family connec- 
tion and their line of descent. In order to do this we 
finally decided to take each generation by itself and 
number consecutively each individual in that genera- 
tion and when we came to describe the family of one 
in the following generations we simply referred to 
number and generation where the name had occurred 
before. This plan we followed until we came to the 
seventh generation when we simply gave the family 
description right in connection with their parents 
and so we did not number the members of the seventh 
generation. Take for example my father, Daniel 
Ziegler, No. 67, Gen. IV ; he is given as the oldest 
son of Jacob Ziegler, No. 13, Gen. Ill ; if you refer 
back to Gen. Ill, No. 13, you will find that Jacob was 



4 PREFACE. 

the third child of Phihp Ziegler who again was the 
fifth child of the first .Philip. Now coming down 
from my father No. 67, Gen. IV, you will find his 
children from No. 233 to 250 in Gen. V, and his grand 
children from No. 459 to 537 in Gen. VI, and his great 
grand children are given right in connection with the 
names of the grand children. 

You will notice that in some hues of the family 
especially there is great deficiency of dates. Evi- 
dently some of our correspondents thought it either 
unnecessary or found it impossible to supply them. 
In the 'main we have spared neither time nor space to 
include all the information that was supplied us. 

I acknowledge much valuable assistance first 
from my father who traveled considerably and suc- 
ceeded in tracing out several clues to members of our 
family which had lost sight of each other and could 
never have been traced back if it had not been for 
his wide acquaintance and his good memory. lam 
also indebted to Adam Miimich, of Trotwood, Ohio, 
for information concerning the branch of the family 
ir Ohio, John Wesley Ziegler and Mary M. Miller of 
South Bend, Ind., Jacob Heagy, of Annville, Pa., 
and a number of others who have gathered data or 
imparted information; of these we spaak in recogni- 
tion as we meet their names in the genealogy. 

You will notice that I invariably omitted the 
date of birth of those who were married into the 
family. I did this for the sake of simplicity, first; also 
I really did not think it necessarily belonged to the 
family geuealogy. Many such records even omit the 
name. 

We have refrained from giving an extended 
history of the different members of the family for 
several reasons : 

l3t. Of some of the most prominent mem- 



PREFACE. 5 

bers of the family we did not have sufficient informa- 
tion at hand to give a biography so that those whom 
I knew best would very naturally have come in for 
the fullest sketch. This would not only not be fair 
treatment but might have partaken of vanity, as na- 
turally those most intimately known were those of 
nearest kin to me. 

2nd. It would have also made this volume 
much larger than was desired and, 

3rd. To write up biograpbical sketches would 
have taken much labor and time which we did not 
have at our command. 

Altogether our family is one of which we need 
not be ashamed. The thought might indeed occur to 
us whether our life is such that the fair record be 
not marred by us.

Our Ancester, Philip Ziegler, was born in 
Bern, Switzerland, in 1734, and at the age of twelve, 
or in 1746, he emigrated to America. This agrees 
with the record found in an old Bible still in the pos- 
session of the family of Eli Ziegler near Rehersburg, 
Berks Co., Pa. These dates also agree with Rupp's 
"Thirty Thousand Names." 

Brumbaugh in his History of the Brethren 
differs from this, for he places the year of his emigra- 
tion as 1734. Noticing that this date agrees with the 
year of his birth in the above record, the mistake 
may have occurred in that way. 

He married Rsgina Reguel, anativeof Wurtem 
burg, Germany, and settled on a farm near Rehers- 
burg, Berks Co., but which was at that time Lancaster 
Co. This farm has been in the Ziegler name ever 
since. Emanuel Ziegler, a member of the fifth gen- 
eration, now lives upon this pleasant old homestead. 
Upon this farm was built the Ziegler Meeting House, 
a small brick structure which was replaced by a 
commodious frame building in 1875. 

In the orchard on this old homestead is a small 
grave yard containing the unmarked grave of our 
ancestor. 

It is evident that sometime during his lifetime 
he also purchased another farm adjoining the former 
and extending back to the Swatara. This also has 
been in the family to the present. 



8 ZIEGLER FAMILY RECORD. 

Philip also secured the passage of his mother 
and his sister to this country. This sister married 
Gossert and from this family are descended most of 
the families by this name in Berks and Lebanon 
Counties. They settled on the homestead on the 
Swatara just west of the Ziegler farms. 

It is altogether likely that our ancestors be- 
longed to the Mennoaite Church in the Old Country, 
but probably for the reason that there were none of 
that persuasion convenient, Philip joined the Re- 
formed Church. 

Morgan Edwards in his account of the mem- 
bers of the early congregations in the year 1770 men- 
tions Philip Ziegler and wife as members of the 
Little Swatara Congregation of the German Baptist 
Brethren, and a large majority of the succeeding 
generations belonged to this denomination. 

There have been exceptions to this, however, 
and ministers and church workers of other persua- 
sions are also among the respected and honored 
members of th'S family. 

Taking a general survey of the family whose 
record here lolLjws, we notice that while it has not 
been a royal lineage there hava been some of its 
members that have occupied prominent positions in 
the affairs of county and state. 

Habits of fru'^a^ity and industry, a simple, 
honest, un.>stentatiou3 life and the inspiration of an 
invigorating and healthful rural home life have had a 
most salutory effect in developing people who have in 
many inst mces, in the later generations, become 
leaders in their respective cillings. 

As we f 3II0W out the different branches of the 
family we notice in the ranks ministers of the gospel, 
bishops in the Church, doctors, lawyers, college 
professors, members of Legislature, county officers,

school teachers, prominent business men and some 
of the most prominent and successful farmers that 
till the soil. 

Generation II. 

The date of the marriage of the first Phihp is 
not upon record. To him and his wife ReginaReguel 
Ziegler were born eight children as follows :

mother when the father was away aud carrying all

the children captive, except the least one whom they 
did not find. John, Christian and a sister, who 
were taken captive, were held until the close of the 
French and Indian War when the father, learning of 
the whereabouts of his children, went and recover- 
ed Christian and his sister. Their stories of hard- 
ships aud adventure were quite thrilling. 

Christian was received into the Brethren 
Church at quiie an advanced age. His brother-in- 
law, Eld. Philip Ziegler, administered the ordinance 
of baptism. 

Had three children, one son and two daugh- 
ters.

lived and died at Suedberg, Schuylkill Co. 

He had one of the famous Sower Bibles which 
the English had used to bed their horses when they 
tried to destroy the Sower Pubhshing House. The 
indomitable Sower however again gaihered up the 
scattered leaves and bound them, and this particular 
Bible bore unmistakable evidence of having been in 
such use. 

To this family were born three children.

Philip.

We have now come with our Record to the Sixth 
Generation and for simplicity we shall give in con- 
nection also the Seventh Gen. wherever the line runs 
down that far. We believe that in connection with 
members of the Sixih Generation to give their 
children and perchance grand children will not so 
complicate the Record that it can not easily be follow- 
ed out. Many would probably think that this plan 
would have worked all right through the Record but 
after much investigation and comparison with other 
genealogical records we decided on present plan. 
We will still number members of Gen. VI.
