Re: WILLIE I. ZEIGLER of SC

In Reply to: Re: WILLIE I. ZEIGLER of SC by Matthew Zeigler of 609

My research into Emma Zeigler tops out at her. Someone sent me some census information as follows:

EMMA ZEIGLER, born 1848 in SC.
In the 1900 census, she is living w/: WILLIAM MIKEL
CHARLIE "
IDA "
MINNIE "
ADA "
LILLY "
The family was living in Amelia, Orangeburg, SC.

William Mikell is my great-grandfather. My mom tells me that although her memory is fuzzy, she believes (though she couldn't swear on it) that she was taught that Emma remarried after the Civil war because her first husband, whose name I do not know, did not return from the war. If so, it seems possible, then, that there are two lines that spawn off of Emma Zeigler.

The woman who sent me the census information shares Emma as an acestor and was aware of, but couldn't place the "mysterious Mikell connection." I believe that's because she hails from Emma's first marriage (assuming Emma married more than once) and the descendents, thereof. Or at least that's my current theory. Hope this helps some. Best of luck to you in your research.
