I am seeking information on the Zeile brothers who came to Ashtabula in around 1853. Gotthilf (Gottlob, Gottfried), George David,and Frederick L Zeile. Gotthilf and George stayed in Ashtabula, but Frederick who was married to a Kate? who was born in PA moved there for awhile and later to New York, Syracuse area. Gotthilf married a Lena Goebel and George married a Ditters, both in 1855.
There was also a few Zeiles who came to America, except they ended up in California. The eldest was a Frederick Zeile.
I do know Gotthilf was a Tanner, George ran a Saloon and Frederick was a Tailor. A son of Gotthilf, a Henry Zeile was a Policeman in Ashtabula.

My direct line to the Zeile family is through Gotthilf's son George F. Zeile. George's only child, a daughter- Florence(b. 1892) and James Ellsworth Butler of MD were my Great Grandparents.
They settled in McMechen, WV.
If any of this seems vaguely familiar please email me at:
