Anna Gahagan Ziegler, Wood Co. Ohio

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,, as I will probably not be back to check this board. Thank-you!

The Marion Star: Marion, Ohio: Sep 6, 1961

Elzie M. Zeigler, 85, retired farmer and carpenter, died at 11:10 a.m. Tuesday in the home of a sister, Mrs. J. C. Baird, near New Bloomington. In failing health two years, he was seriously ill two months.

Born April 18, 1876, in Wood County, he was a son of Emerson and Anna Gahagan Zeigler. On Aug. 26, 1900, in Wood County, he married Ella Eckard, who died in 1926 in Wood County. He was a member of the Portage Church of the Brethren. A Marion County resident 25 years, he came here from Wood County.
