Note from Vern Threlkheld - he's great :)

Mr. Zeigler did in fact have at least two surviving sons from his first marriage. They were Earl Wilson Ziegler (died 1957) and Otto Alexander Zeigler (died 1959). He married Agnes (Wilson) Carroll (died 1934) in Shelby Co., Indiana on 3 Aug. 1884, and Lydia (Sering) Weliver on 4 Aug. 1910 in Marion Co., Indiana. She died in 1916. Mr. Zeigler served prison terms for two major assaults. He first was convicted of assault with intent to kill his first wife in 1892 in Shelby Co. IN, spending 9 years in the state prison. In 1913 in Crawfordsville he was again convicted of a similar crime for a firearm assault against his father-in-law Isaac M. Sering. Both victims survived. It is not known how long he served in the second event, but he was not in prison at the time of the 1920 census. These events are described in newspaper articles in both Shelbyville and Crawfordsville. Court records have not been reviewed. Research by Vernon Threlkeld, Member # 46986161."
