Birth: 1734, Germany
Death: May, 1803

Immigrated when 12 years old on the ship "Ann Galley" 9/27/1746.

Tradition passed down through the family states that he took wagonloads of food to the soldiers at Valley Forge during the Revolution.

Philip died before May, 25, 1803 in Tulpehocken Twp, Berks county, and was buried in the small family cemetery on their farm. His wife Regina died in 1824, near Rehrersburg, Pa. she was 94 years old. She was buried in the small cemetery on the old farm, next to her husband. There are no existing markers to indicate the burial location.
Two memorial markers have been erected for him, one in 1912 in Row 20, of the Ziegler's Meetinghouse Brethren Cemetery
(note the Revolutionary War Marker), and another in 2000 in the Enclosed Ziegler Family Cemetery (actual burial location) which is located just south of the Ziegler's Meetinghouse Brethren Cemetery. Both cemeteries are located on land which was Philip Ziegler's farmstead that remained in the family for over 200 years, until 1972 when it was sold to a non family member.

Appraisal of Estate done May 25, 1803.
