I work at the Wood County (Ohio) District Public Library and am posting this request for a patron who will be in my area doing genealogical research for the next few weeks.He is looking for information on Anna Gahagan Zeigler, wife of Emerson Zeigler, mother of Elzie M. Ziegler.He feels that she may have re-married at some point, but does not know for sure (and therefore would also not know when, where or to whom).Below is the text of Elzie's obituary, which the patron provided to aide in research.I would appreciate any follow-ups sent to my e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, as I will probably not be back to check this board.Thank-you!
