52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks #18 ~ Samuel Zaugg

Written for Amy Johnson Crow's Challenge 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. (click on the icon in the sidebar for details at Amy's blog)

Keeping with my plan of going in order through Jacob Sr's children we are moving on to the sixth child.  [skipping John who had died prior to the family coming to the United States]

Samuel Zaugg
First just the facts:
Name: Samuel Zaugg
Born: 25-Jul-1830, Eggiwil, Bern, Switzerland
Married: 1st Elizabeth or Marianne Baldinger on 01-Nov-1855, and 2nd Cecile Calame  on 04-Jul-1862 both in Wayne County, Ohio
 Died: 22-Jun-1910, Wayne County, Ohio [Find-A-Grave memorial]


Cecile Calame Zaugg

Samuel and Cecile are the parents of Frederick Zaugg who led me to that wonderful find on eBay earlier.

As you can see from the page out of the "Zaugg Book", Samuel had quite a large family with his second wife. Fortunately for me I made a connection through Ancestry with someone  who has pictures from this part of the family as Samuel is her husband's ancestor.  She has graciously allowed me to use any of the pictures she has shared.

Their first two sons both died prior to their first birthdays but Samuel and Cecile would go on to have 4 other sons pictured here as adults:

In birth order they are:
Wesley b. 26 Jun 1867
Frederick b. 09 Jun 1871
John b. 1874
Elmer b. Oct 1882 
[I believe in this picture they are, L to R, Fred, John, Elmer, Wesley] 

Like my ancestor, Jacob Jr, Samuel came to Wayne County Ohio and stayed there the remainder of his life farming and raising his family.
