Surnames: Baase, Schepler, Schaepler, Schapler, Vick, Rath, Rockow, Rochow, Rachow, Westphal, Leverenz, Heise, Kelso, Koeltzow, Kolzow, Pagels, Zahn, Demlow, Coppernaut, Kaunow, Konow, Bary
My ancestors on my father's side, who were all apparently predominantly German Lutherans, emmigrated to the small town of Hamlin in New York's Monroe County throughout the 19th Century. I have been researching them for close to two years now, and have been able to amass a great deal of information on them, although I am still quite far from where I would like to be with my research. Still, my gains have been impressive enough to satisfy me for the present. :) But, I am always interested to know more. If you have/need/or can get more information on the individuals presented below, please notify me by posting a reply or sending me an e-mail.
I got all of the below information from the Monroe County (NY) Genweb site. (http://home.eznet.net/~halsey/gcff.html) These entries are very abbreviated and do not show all known descendants, only those born in Germany (most in Mecklenburg, some in Prussia and other places.) Please forgive any spelling errors involving place names or personal names, these I did not make, and I would be glad to know the correct spellings. If there's any help you could provide me, I would appreciate it.

Most of these people were born in Germany, but emmigrated to Monroe County. If you want to see more about the people who were actually born in this country, please see the link to my website at the bottom of this page.

Siglers in Hamlin, NY

Posted: 12 Jul 1999 12:00PM GMT
Classification: Query
Edited: 19 Jul 2001 11:26PM GMT
Surnames: Sigler
I am also researching my husband's father's family, who
settled in Hamlin, NY. They were Lutherans and some of
them are buried in the Blossom Cemetery in Hamlin. My
husband's father was Byron Emerson SIGLER,Jr., and he was
born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1900. His grandfather was
Byron Emerson Sigler Sr., who was born in Monroe County
in 1875, and who married a Danish immigrant named Pauline
Larsen. Byron Sr's siblings were: Cora, Clara, Charley,
John David, William and Genevieve Sigler. Clara married a
man named Rudy Heiss from Seneca Falls. There is an older
man buried in the Blossom Cemetery in Hamlin named David
Sigler, as well as one named Osias Sigler. We are trying
to figure out which ones might be the father and/or grand-
father of Byron Sigler, Sr who was born in Monroe County
and buried in Brandon, Wisconsin. If you discover any
Siglers from Germany in your research that match the above
information, could you please let us know? We think the
father of Byron Sr was William Sigler, and there is a
William Sigler buried in Hamlin in the Blossom Cemetery.
We were told that my husband's great-grandfather was in the
Civil War, and this particular William did fight with the
cavalry in the Civil War. I think I am on the right track,
but now I need help. We want to know where in Germany this
family came from. There is a Colonel Frederich Sigler who
fought in the Revolutionary War from PA and was given
much land as a reward in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.
His descendants spread westward to MD, PA, IN, etc and are
now quite numerous. We are hoping to establish our branch
of the family.

Thanks!

I am descended from the Kolzow family of Hinsdale IL. My father is Roy Kolzow. I spent a week this summer in Mecklenburg touring the towns of Boddin and Kolzow from which my ancestors supposedly came. I was not able to get much information because no adults spoke English and most were not interested in talking with outsiders.
