Your Brick Wall is NO MORE!

Rev. Philip ZEIGLER is the brother of my line: Joseph ZEIGLER, a Church of the Brethren Minister, of neighboring Whitley County, Indiana.

Reverend Philip ZEIGLER of Noble County, Indiana second wife Elizabeth Miles died when Phillip was a preacher in Erie Co. PA in 1873, from the 1902 book on the History of the Eel River Christian Conference which contains their photograph, but no names for 1 son and 2 daughters.

I have a daughter Marjorie married to William Masden with a child Alva. Whether David F. BASDEN was a second husband or the name was corrupted is unknown. My information is from page 29 in the 1906 ZIEGLER Family Record by Elder Jesse ZIEGLER found on, linked on my web site: ,

and in the updated 1990 edition by Floyd Mason pages 98 and 126.

Rev. Philip ZEIGLER was the first paid minister of the Christian Church at Merriam, Noble County, Indiana. He is buried in Section 2 Row 16 in the Christian Chapel Church cemetery with his wife Elizabeth Miles and 2 other young children, son Arba W. ZEIGLER is nearby. See the cemetery web page:

Please contact me directly through my web site on the first link above as I would like to know more about Margaret and her descendants. I have traced many of our ZEIGLER relatives from Ohio to the present. I have not looked at the PA ZIEGLER families, but they are covered in both books.

P.S. For whatever reason the name changed from ZIEGLER to ZEIGLER in Ohio when moving to Indiana.
