All genealogy research contain errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My research of Indiana and Ohio families comes from conversations with relatives, copied scrapbooks, library research, online records, courthouse visits, and multiple visits to final resting places on family farms and cemeteries. Families in other states rely mostly on the research of others. If you have additional information on any families, corrections, photos, or anything to add to the history of our families, please leave a Comment in my Guest book, join my Follis Families on Facebook page, or send an Email. Read Dick Eastman's discussion of Unverified Data.

5th great-grandmother Regina REQUEL 1730 Wurttemberg, Germany to 1824, husband Philip ZIEGLER 1734 Bern, Switzerland to 1803 Berks County, Pennsylvania.

Further research is needed for the following unconfirmed information.

Some sources in the internet link's below list Regina's parents as Johann Abraham RIEGEL 1722-1790 and Elizabeth A Dubelle 1722-? Germany to Pennsylvania, but the dates don't fit Regina's birth year of 1730. Abraham was under 16 years of age when his parents, Palatines, came to America on the ship Pennsylvania Merchant. Their location in Berks County, Pennsylvania fits well with my ZIEGLER's, but makes more sense as a brother or other relative.

The same sources list Abraham's parents "Johannes Cornelius, 1674-1750, his wife, Anna, 1676-1760, and several of their childrens arrival in America on September 18, 1733 on the 'Pennsylvania Merchant' in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Two of their sons, Matthias and Jorg, had came to America a year earlier in 1732, and established homesteads. Johannes and Anna were to join son Jorg at the homestead he had established in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Johannes lived on his farm in Berks County until his death in 1750. Anna died in 1760 in Tulpehocken Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania." From Coy Taylor's web site where he states his source is the book "Riegell to Riggle a genealogy 1390-1995 by Carl Robert Riegel and James Earl Reigle Penobscot Press; first printing May 1996".
