Hi Gaila & Jim,
>Thanks for the e-mail.  However, Susan is the gal who needs help on her

>Martha Piquot (1750/55 - C1796 Bamberg, SC).  She is believed to have been

>need help on Martha's husband's father, Fritz Zeigler (that sounds like a
>soap opera).  Martha's husband was Michael Zeigler (C1738 Suabia-Land -
>1809 Bamberg, SC).  Michael's father is shown on the Colonial Journal
>records as Fritz but was possibly known by another first name.  He was born
>in Suabia-Land 1695/1710 and died 1753  to 1780 we believe in SC.  Part of
>his family in PA is a possibility.
>Saubia-Land only lasted a year or two as a country, now being the state of
>Wurttemberg in Germany.  I have been to Ulster or Northern Ireland and love
>the people there.  They are great.  I have not as yet been to Saubia-Land.
>I believe I will find the people there similar to those in Ulster.  They

>are all an unnecessary evil and would not be required if the people were

 Hi Susan
 It seems to me I have seen several of your names mentioned (similar
 surnames) on the SCRoots list.  You would be able to check the digests.
 There has been a fair bit of research on the Hugenots and I believe
 was a Hugenot family name.
 Good luck,
