Hoping someone here will recognize my g-grandmother and her siblings!The listed siblings were all b. in Sidney between 1857-1868.Their parents were Jacob and Christina Allinger Ziegler, who had themselves both been b. in Germany. 2 of the sisters in this family, Anna and Callie, never married, and remained in the family home at 221 Pike St., Sidney.(In the 1880 census, all of the children are listed as living there, as well as their mother Christina, and their grandmother, Christiana Allinger; Jacob Ziegler and Johan jacob Allinger were both deceased by then.) Brother Edward, according to his death certificate, was living in Medina, OH at the time of his death, 1/23/1928.He was listed as being married, but no name was given for his wife.(She was still alive at his death, as she signed as the informer for the d. certificate---but signed as "Mrs. E.C. Ziegler".) I have yet to find Edward and his family on any later census.
The 3rd sister, Mary S., b. 1/20/1859, m. David Linus Minton, also of Sidney.They lived out their lives at 220 Maple St., Sidney.They had 2 children, Willa and Gerald Ziegler Minton.Willa m. Carol Clark, and they also remained in Sidney.Gerald m. Martha Gillespie of Sidney, but they moved away, eventually to Allegheny Co., PA.Mary S. Ziegler Minton, my g-grandmother, d. 4/22/1943.
I'm hoping something here rings a bell with someone still in Shelby Co.!
