* The "Wagner - Wagoner - Waggoner" Family, 1758*

Updated September 6, 2000


We are currently entering an extensive genealogy of the John Wagner Sr (Waggoner) family (1758), who came to this country from Wasselone, Alsace, France. He was born
about 20 miles northwest of Strasbourg, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France. He left
with LaFayette for America as a member of four divisions of Alsatians, with
six other divisions from France. John enlisted, at or near Reading,
Pennsylvania, in the Revolutionary War in Valentine Creager’s Company as a
private on 10/3/1776. John and Adam were two of the sixty-eight privates
( Maryland Archives, Volume Eighteen, Pages 71 and 72 ). He then joined
Captain Bartholemew Von Heer’s Company. John served as a private in
Captain Von Heer’s Troop of Horsemen and in General George Washington’s
Life-Guard. He was with the French General LaFayette, on the day General
Cornwallis surrendered
He initially resided in the Reading, PA - Hagerstown, MD area. The
following entry, under “Marriage Records of Washington County” as taken
from “Maryland Marriages” pages 226-241 states: John Waggoner to Elizabeth
Litch ( probably Leach ), July 18, 1785; by Rev. Jacob Weimer, Lutheran
minister.
They resided in the vicinity of Hagerstown, Maryland for about twelve years;
when in 1797, they moved to Bedford County, Pennsylvania; which lies between
Cumberland, Md and Altoona, Pa. In 1803, the family then moved to Perry
County, Ohio. They settled in Section Five, Reading Township, about two
and one-half miles northwest of the present village of Somerset; 50 miles
east of Columbus, where the bulk of the Wagner family was established.

We are looking for the recent descendents (since 1935), of the many branches
of the family. We currently have just over 5,100 names entered.

We trust that our findings will assist you in locating your full family, and
we gratefully thank you if your research assists us.
