The German roots of Kaigler, (Kögler, Kegler), family are apparently centered in two places in Germany, Eckartsberga and Dresden. The name in Germany, as in the United States, is rare but the family appears in Eckartsberga (Saxony) since before 1700. According to those records, an early Kegler was Nikolaus, born about 1660 and married Anna Catherine Friese. They had several children whose baptismal records are preserved in Eckartsberga. Nikolaus is reported to be a "free mason." He died 11/21/1704.
Children: Johann Michael Kegler, born before 1694, married in 1716 Catherine Koppe, daughter of Andreas Koppe, Susanna Kegler, baptized 6/4/1694, Johann Andreas Kegler, born 1697, married 11/21/1725, Maria Christina Werner, daughter of Rudolph Werner. Hans Christopf Kegler, born 1700, died 9/5/1709, Marie Christina Kegler, born 1701. Another Eckartsberga record reads as follows: 18 (October) 1734 was born on 20 (October) 1734 was Christened Johann Andreas Kegler, a son of Johann Andreas Kegler, citizen and shoemaker here, and his wife Maria Christina. God-parents: Master Johann Andreas Zeise, citizen and turner here, Master Johann Michael Rose, cloth-weaver and thread-weaver here, and Anna Christina Uhlstein of Mallendorf"
It appears that the first immigrant of the name Kögler (Kaigler) was Georg, shown as a carpenter in a list of Salzburgers who embarked from Europe October, 31 1734, arriving in America December, 28 1734 and settling at Ebenezer community Georgia, with other Salzburgers. He continues to be included in lists of residents in Ebenezer in 1741 and acted as godfather on December 12, 1757; his wife Barbara was godmother on March 2, 1762. By January 16, 1775, a list of the Jerusalem Church of Ebenezer, Georgia, includes on the roll only the name of John Kaigler (Kögler). Matthew Kaigler is shown to have a land grant in South Carolina in 1754, followed by land grants to Frederick Kaigler, 1781, Camden Di.
