Birth03 AUG 18621
Death14 JUN 19431
Aged: 80.9 years
J G Ziegler, of West Dolan Township, was born in 1862, in the state of New York, son of George and Catherine Ziegler. When J G came to Cass County with his parents in 1866, he was a child of four years. Schools were scarce in those pioneer days, but when he could be spared from work at home he attended the little country school in his home district. Mr. Ziegler spent his childhood in this county and in this township. The normal lad had keen eyes, a retentive memory and impressionable mind. J G Ziegler was a normal lad and he recalls two men who exerted a great influence upon him in the days of his youth, Scott McRoberts, an early day school teacher, and Rev Sage, a pioneer preacher. When he was just a youth he began working out by the day. Wages were not then all that could be desired and young Ziegler received, after a long day of hard labor, the munificent sum of fifty cents. In later manhood he made more money speculating in stock, buying calves and pigs and selling them at a small profit.
In 1886 J G Ziegler and Sophia Eggenberger, daughter of Christopher and Esther Eggenberger, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony and this union has been blessed with two children, who are living; Mrs. Elsie Wattenbarger, West Line, Missouri and Ranard, Freeman, Missouri.
Mr Ziegler has been a resident of Cass County for more than fifty years and well remembers those early days of countless inconveniences and hardships. He has passed through that trying period which is necessarily attendant to the settlement and development of a new country. There were no improvements in Cass County when he came. Money was not plentiful, markets were few, and the pioneer settlers had little to sell. Those were days of the open range, the halcyon days of the cattlemen. Mr Ziegler is a typical descendant of those sturdy pioneers who with much self-sacrifice, courage and industry laid the foundations of Cass County upon the wide, unbroken prairie. And they knew not how well they built.- History of Cass County MO by Allen Glenn 1917
