Family History

     Ferdinand Fitzner came to Pine Township with this mother Rosina Fetzner Zeigler and step father Michael Zeigler in 1868.  The Zeigler's bought 160 acres on Bale Rd. and built a house and barn.  The homestead earned the MI Centennial Award for being in the same family for over 100 years.  Ferdinand married Helena Zolz and settled in Pine Township on land he purchased.  He ran a stump pulling business and built masonry buildings and items.  They raised 8 children and many Grandchildren.  Many of the great grandchildren still live in the area (2010).
