Ziglar Family

First Generation

Johann Leonhart Ziegler (1711-1757) immigrated from Sinsheim, Germany, in 1732 and settled in the Germanna colony in Culpeper Co. Virginia, where he married Barbara Zimmerman, daughter of Christopher Zimmerman. The following children are named in his will:

Christopher Ziegler m. Elizabeth ?
Leonard Ziegler (d. 1772) m. Ann ?

Ann Ziegler
Susanna Ziegler m. Joshua Tillery

Barbara Zimmerman had a half-brother, John, who married Ursula Blankenbaker. John and Ursula's oldest son John married three times and had 13 children. Reuben, Susanna and Nancy Zimmerman mentioned in the next generation are probably all children of John Jr., but there is some uncertainty as to which of John's three wives were their mothers.
