John W. Zeigler & Mary Sheppard - Urbana, OH

I received the death certificate of Elizabeth Francis (Zigler) Thornton which states that she died in Columbus, OH and was born in 1867 in Urbana, Champaign Co., OH to John W. Zigler, born PA, and Mary Sheppard, born Piqua, OH. The information for the death certificate was given by Josie Ohsner of Urbana who may have been her sister Josephine. I then located John Zeigler, age 38, wife Mary, age 40, and seven children (Sarah, Josephine, Lizzie, Walter, George, Etta B., and Minnie M.) in the 1880 Census for Urbana. Joseph Shepherd, age 19, was living with them. The census says that John Zeigler was born in OH but his parnets were born in PA and that his wife Mary was born in OH but her parents were born in VA. Joseph Shepherd's parents were also born in VA. There were two other Shepherd families living on the same street in Urbana - John, age 29, and Jesse, age 37.

Does anyone have any additional information on these Zeigler or Shepherd/Sheppard families?
