-- Ziegler and Barbara --

The first and only known record of Magdalena Ziegler's mother comes from the First Settlers List for Göbel, Saratov, Russia. Barbara --, widow of a man named Ziegler, settled in Göbel on 20 June 1767 and is found in the household of his son-in-law Johannes Haberkorn. Barbara was born about 1709, probably in Germany, and is listed as a Catholic.

If Johannes is indeed the Johannes Haberkorn who arrived on the Love and Unity, Barbara does not seem to have arrived with him. Johannes seems to have been married to a Maria at that time. Unless Magdalena Ziegler was actually a Maria Magdalena Ziegler, he probably was a widower and married Magdalena after arriving in Russia but before settling in a colony.

Her origin and the given name of her husband is not currently known. She does not appear in the 1798 census
in Göbel and may have died before that time.

Barbara's child by an unidentified husband is:

  1. Magdalena Ziegler, born about 1744, married Johannes Haberkorn (b. abt. 1742 in the Electorate of Mainz, Germany (in the unidentified town of Tating), probably the son of Anna (--) Haberkorn, possibly m. 1) Maria --, settled in Göbel, Saratov, Russia on 20 Jun 1767, buried in Dec 1815 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia.
