Will and Sallie Ziegler

The picture to the left is Will and Sallie Ziegler with their sons John and Hobart Ziegler. Will died Jan. 7, 1949 and Sallie died Mar. 2,1972. My grandfather was John Ziegler.
Grandma was 98 years old when she died. I remember her very well. I remember thinking how neat it was to have a great grandmother still living. She wore her hair long
and braided in a bun in the back. Her daughter Christian never married. Christian lived with her mother and took care of her.
In addition to running a store Will was a carpenter. Once when Grandma and Christian came to my grandparents house in the summer Grandma was confused by the A.C. She didn't understand all of the modern things. She said,"If Will was alive he would close up all the cracks in the house. It's cold in here."
