In the Greater Cincinnati area where most of my relatives still live we believe that all of the Ziegelmeyers are related although some spell their name Ziegelmeier. I was told by an uncle of mine who did alot of genealogical research that the "meier" branch in our area was formed when a family squabble between two brothers started over an illegitimate offspring resulting in one brother changing the spelling of his name and disowning the family.
I ran across a Ziegelmeier who is a patient of an eye doctor who also treats me. I inquired about the story and though he did know much about the history of his family he had heard a similar story about the family name. He also mentioned that his father had never really associated with his family.
Does anyone else have similar stories regarding their name. Do any other Ziegelmeyers have Ziegelmiers in their tree.
Also does anyone have info on Ziegelmeiers in Cincinnati.
