[p. 1113]

JACOB FIEDLER, only son of Daniel and Catherine FIEDLER, was born in 1803, on the banks of the Connoquenessing, in Jackson township. He was reared on a farm, and after arriving at his majority he purchased a tract of 232 acres, where George Lotz and Adam Mickly now live, in Jackson township. Here he resided until 1838, when he sold out and removed to Harmony, purchased a hotel, which stood on the site of G. D. Swain's store, and carried on the hotel business until his death, which occurred September 14, 1842. He was a Democrat until 1840, in which year he joined the Whig party, and supported Harrison for the presidency. He was a member of the Lutheran church at Zelienople, and an earnest supporter of that organization. Mr. FIEDLER married Susannah, daughter of Jacob GOEHRING, of Beaver county, to which union were born seven children: Daniel; Jacob; Caroline, wife of Abraham ZIEGLER, Sr.; Louisa, deceased wife of Gottlieb PEFFER; George W., a resident of Ohio; Melissa, wife of Eli ZEIGLER, of Harmony, and William H., a resident of Ohio. His widow married Abraham ZEIGLER, and died in 1887. She is buried in the cemetery near the Mennonite church, in Jackson township.2
