Descendants of John Waggener


58. STOKELEY TOWLES5 WAGGENER (JAMES JONES4, JAMES HERBERT3, HERBERT2, JOHN1) was born April 11, 1799 in Culpeper Co., Virginia, and died July 1886 in Russellville, Logan Co., Kentucky. He married (1) ANN ELIZABETH ANDERSON December 19, 1820 in Todd Co., Kentucky, daughter of NICHOLAS ANDERSON and SARAH BULLOCK. She was born Bet. 1800 - 1810, and died Bef. 1840. He married (2) ELIZABETH T. ROSS Abt. 1840 in Todd County, Kentucky. She was born October 1818 in Tennessee, and died August 1882 in Logan Co., Kentucky.

Notes for S
TOKELEY TOWLES WAGGENER:
Stokeley must have been born to his parents James Jones and Elizabeth (Garnett) Waggener, on their estate in Culpeper County, Virginia. This was apparently near to the town of Rapidan along the Rapidan River. He was one of his parent's youngest children. I know that Stokeley's parents moved to Todd County, Kentucky in 1820 or 1821, and that his father died there in about 1822. I'm not sure when Stokeley moved to Todd County, but it appears as though he might have moved before his parents. He reportedly married his first wife, Ann Elizabeth Anderson in Todd County on December 19, 1820. Stokeley and Ann are listed as witnesses to the marriage of his sister Eliza in nearby Christian County, in 1824.

Stokeley apparently lived in or near the town of Trenton in Todd County, up until about 1859. He reportedly opened up a tailor shop in Trenton around 1830. Shortly thereafter he began operating some kind of general store in Trenton, which he continued to operate until he left. Stokeley had two children with Ann, after which she apparently died. Apparently by about 1840, he married his second wife, Elizabeth Ross. Stokeley and Elizabeth had at least eight children. Most prominent of his children was his son Leslie, whose career included being a Civil War hero, a college professor, and the first President of the University of Texas.

From the family letters I have obtained, Stokeley seems to have served as a sort of patriarchal figure for the family. It also appears that he was quite well off. He is listed on the 1850 census in Todd County as a merchant and farmer, with property valued at $6,000. In the 1860 census he is listed in Logan County with real estate valued at $9,180, and personal property valued at $45,000.

Around 1859 Stokeley and Elizabeth moved to the Russellville area of Logan County. They lived there on a farm for the rest of their lives. Stokeley died in Logan County, Kentucky in July of 1886. He and Elizabeth are buried there in the Maple Grove Cemetery in Russellville.

From the 1830 Federal Census of the Town of Trenton, Todd County, Kentucky, page 357; from genealogy.com:

S. T. Waggener; 1 male 30-39 years (Stokeley); 1 female under 5 years, 2 female 10-14 years, 1 female 20-29 years (Ann); 1 male slave under 10 years, 1 male slave 10-23 years, 1 female slave under 10 years, 1 female slave 10-23 years.

From the County of Todd, Kentucky, edited by J.H. Battle, published 1884:

Trenton Precinct, page 175:

"...In about 1830 Stokely T. Waggoner came to this point. He opened a tailor shop, but soon after turned his attention to merchandising, and until 1859 he was one of the leading merchants at this point. From here he went to Russellville, where he is still living. Henry Wisdom purchased Waggoner's store and continued operations here about ten years...."

From Deeds of Todd County, Kentucky, 1820-1842; sent to me by Frieda Winkler:

Deed Book G, page 333; dated July 8, 1831; James F. Spillman of Trenton to Stokeley T. Waggoner for $366. parcel of land near Trenton on the West Fork of the Red River. Corners: north edge of the Gallatin Road, survey of Watts D. Ewing, now owned by Pouncy Anderson, stake in the Nashville Road, center of Main Street. (Lewisburgh now called Trenton.) Signed. Recorded November 24, 1831.

------------------------

Deed Book G, page 469; dated July 9, 1832; George Pollack to Stokeley T. Waggoner - 6 acres for $30. on the West Fork of Red River, part of James Roberts' original survey. Corner to Harrel. Signed and recorded same day.

From a series of transcribed family letters sent to my by Judy Senter:

****** There is a letter written by Elizabeth (O'Neil) Waggener (widow of Stokeley's brother James Waggener, who died in 1822) to her son George C. Waggener and his wife Mary Frances (Anderson). The letter is headed: "December 17th, Todd Co, near Trenton." It seems to have probably been written in 1838.

Elizabeth talks about Stokeley and his wife Ann (Anderson) Waggener. They apparently lived near Elizabeth in Trenton and ran some kind of store. Stokeley seems to have been some kind of family patriarchal figure, who apparently subsidized or supported a number of extended family members. Elizabeth obviously thought very highly of them, and chided her son and daughter-in-law to, "follow the footsteps of Stokeley and Ann in many things." Stokeley's wife Ann was the sister of Mary Frances (Anderson) Waggener. She apparently died in the next couple of years, and Stokeley was remarried to Elizabeth Ross.

==================

From the 1840 Federal Census of Todd County, Kentucky, page 273; from ancestry.com, images 69 & 70 of 71:

Wagner, S. T.; 1 male under 5 years (Jasper), 1 male 20-29 years, 1 male 40-49 years (Stokley); 1 female 5-9 years (Olive), 1 female 10-14 years; 2 male slaves under 10 years, 2 male slaves 10-23 years, 1 male slave 24-35 years; 1 female slave under 10 years, 2 female slaves 10-23 years; 13 persons total, 5 persons engaged in agriculture, 1 person engaged in commerce

It would seem that Stokeley's first wife, Ann Elizabeth Anderson, was deceased at this point, and he had yet to marry his second wife, Elizabeth Ross.

From the 1850 Slave Schedule, Todd County, Kentucky; transcribed by Karin and Rachel Combs- Copyright 2001:

From Schedule 2, Slave Inhabitants in District No. 1 in the County of Todd, State of Kentucky, enumerated August 29 and September 1, 1850:

Stokely is listed with a total of 15 slaves, specifically listed as; 36 year old black male, 35 year old black male, 35 year old black female, 34 year old black female, 33 year old black female, 23 year old black male, 20 year old mulatto male, 18 year old mulatto male, 15 year old black male, 13 year old black female, 11 year old mulatto male, 8 year old black female, 4 year old black female, 3 year old black female, 3 month old black female

====================

From the 1860 Federal Census of Russellville District No. 2, Logan County, Kentucky, page 621, Post Office- Russellville, household #820, taken July 21, 1860; from ancestry.com, image 285 of 326:

S. T. Waggener; age- 61, male, occupation- farmer, real estate- $9,180, personal property- $45,000, born- Virginia
E. T. Waggener; age- 43, female, born- Tennessee
Leslie Waggener; age- 18, male, born- Kentucky, in school
Annie Waggener; age- 16, female, born- Kentucky, in school
James Waggener; age- 14, male, born- Kentucky, in school
Ellen Waggener; age 12, female, born- Kentucky, in school
Belle Waggener; age- 10, female, born- Kentucky, in school
Dick Waggener; age- 6, male, born- Kentucky
Ada Waggener; age- 9/12, female, born- Kentucky

This record shows that Stokeley and family moved to Russellville in Logan County, before the Civil War. According to the biography of his son Leslie, Leslie graduated from Bethel College in Russellville, in 1860. Perhaps this had something to do with why they moved. Leslie was only 18 years old at the time. Stokeley and Elizabeth remained in Russellville the rest of their lives. This census also shows that Stokeley and Elizabeth were fairly wealthy.
It would seem that Ellen must have been listed as Babe on the 1850 census above. Also, Jemima is not here or on the 1870 census below, which might well indicate that she was deceased. James was not listed on the 1850 census above. It seems possible that he was somehow mistakenly listed as Jemima on 1850, and that there never was a Jemima.

--------------------------------------

S.T. Waggener is listed with 13 slaves, on page 26 of the Slave Schedule in Russellville District No. 2, Logan County, Kentucky:

60 year old black female, 50 year old black male, 40 year old black female, 19 year old black male, 17 years old black female, 16 year old black male, 15 year old black male, 14 year old black female, 12 year old black female, 10 year old black female, 2 year old black female, 18 year old black female, 6/12 year old black female

====================

There are a series of four deeds in Montgomery County, Tennessee involving Stokeley. They seem to involve two tracts of land that Stokeley purchased for his daughter Olive and her husband Frank W. Waller. The deeds are dated 1865- 1867, but it appears that the first 33 acre tract was initially purchased in 1861, which probably would have been soon after Olive and Frank married. Montgomery County, was directly south of Logan County, Kentucky, in Tennessee. I have included the transcriptions of the deeds in the notes for Olive.

From the 1870 Federal Census of Russellville Confederation, Logan County, Kentucky, taken August 24, 1870, page 511, household 170; from ancestry.com, image 507 of 530:

Wagoner, Stokley T.; age 71, male, white, occupation- farmer, real estate- $8,000, personal property- $8,000, born- Virginia
------ Elizabeth T.; age- 53, female, white, occupation- keeping house, born- North Carolina
------ Ellen; age- 20, female, white, born- Kentucky (from David Wagoner: m. A.P Wooldridge 15, Sept 1874)
------ Bell; age- 18, female, white, born- Kentucky, in school, (from David Wagoner: m. Thomas L. Waggoner 28 Apr 1881)
------ James; age- 22, male, white, occupation- Physician, born- Kentucky
------ Addie; age- 10, female, white, born- Kentucky, in school
------ Thomas; age- 30, male, black, occupation- works on farm, born- Virginia
------ Elicif; age- 25, female, black, occupation- house servant, born- Kentucky
------ Bernie; age- 3, male, black, born- Kentucky
------ Mattie; age- 1, female, black, born- Kentucky
Boyer, Caroline; age- 30, female, black, occupation- cook, born- Kentucky
------ Henry; age- 8, male, mulatto, born- Kentucky
------ Clay; age- 3, male, mulatto, born- Kentucky

Shelby, Rody; age- 25, female, mulatto, occupation- house servant, born- Kentucky
------ Sinton; age- 9/12, male, mulatto, born- Kentucky, born- August

I have learned that Thomas was a former slave of Stokely's, who was given his own farm on the property of Stokeley, in apparent appreciation for years of faithful service. This included saving the life of Stokeley's son Leslie, after he was shot and wounded during the battle of Shiloh, in the Civil War. Reportedly Thomas found the wounded Leslie on the battle field, begged the doctors to help him, and spent many months nursing him back to health. Thomas was affectionately known as "Uncle Tom," and apparently lived there until his death. It seems quite likely that some of the other servants listed here were also former slaves.

=================

From the same series of transcribed family letters, written about 30 years later, sent to my by Judy Senter:

****** There is a letter written by Stokeley's daughter, Olive K. Waller, who is writing from Clarksville, Tennessee on January 26, 1876, to her aunt, Mary Frances (Anderson) Waggener, who was in Hancock County, Illinois. Clarksville is about 20 mile south of Trenton, just across the border. Olive writes about a recent visit from her father:

"... Pa stayed some time with me last fall. He is in good health and more cheerful than usual. He often spoke of you and enjoyed seeing you so much. Nothing gives him such pleasure as to meet with those he knew in early life, his happiest days as he says...."

***** There is another letter written by Olive, to her cousin Mary O. Waggener, who is apparently in Illinois. Olive is apparently still not too far from Trenton. The letter was written August 29, 1877. Speaking of her father Olive writes:

"... I went to se Pa last month. His general health is very good though he is quite feeble. He was 78 years old last April. He told me he had written a long letter to Cousin Ell months ago in which he spoke of old times and associations. He asked her to be sure to answer and if she couldn't, for your Ma or Pa to do so, as the letter was intended for them too. He has never received as answer. I do hope some of you will write to him. It is a great task for him to write now and he feels hurt that his letter was not noticed. Nothing affords him more pleasure than to talk about old times and people he knew. He rarely even meets with any....

Sue speaks briefly of Olive and her brother Jasper. Sue notes that Olive lives near to her, apparently in Todd County, Kentucky, and that "Cousin Jap" is apparently living in Cape Giraidan, Missouri, and running some kind of store. The letter reads:

"Cousin Olive is at home and not married yet. I like her very mutch but do not go there often she is very affectionate Cousin Jap also is a very good boy he is living in Cape ........(must be Giraidan) Missouri and I hope he will do well.... Charles and Cousin Jap are merchandising..."

Barbara Dudley Brown sent me a series of deeds from the Montgomery County Courthouse, Clarksville, Tennessee. The first three deeds seem to involve one 33 or 34 acre piece of property in Montgomery County, purchased for Olive and her husband Frank, by Olive's father Stokley Towles Waggener. The fourth deed seems to be a tact of land adjacent to the other tract. At the time of these deeds Stokley was living near Russellville in Logan County, Kentucky. This was just north of Montgomery County. It appears that the parcel was initially purchased around 1861, which would have been soon after Olive and Frank married.

More from a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

****** There is a letter written by "Olive K. Waller" who is writing from Clarksville, Tennessee on January 26, 1876, to her aunt, Mary Frances (Anderson) Waggener, who was in Hancock County, Illinois. Olive is married although she only refers to her husband as Mr. Waller. Clarksville, Tennessee seems to be about 20 miles south of Trenton, Kentucky, just across the border. Olive makes a reference which seems to indicate she has been there for 8-10 years. She mentions that the laborers that they use on their farm are not reliable, and that she and her husband are not able to leave for any length of time. She mentions that she had last seen her father, Stokely Towles Waggener, the previous fall, and that he was in good health. She also mentions being touch with the sons of her uncles, Dick Waggener in Cumberland Co., Virginia and Reuben Garnett Waggener in Rush Tower, Missouri.

****** There is another letter from Olive, written to her cousin Mary O'Neil Waggener, who is apparently in Illinois. The heading says she's in "Glenoline," which I can't find on a map, but is also apparently not too far from Trenton. There apparently was a "Glenellen" in Montgomery County, Tennessee, which probably is the place she is referring to . The letter is dated "Aug. 29," and seems to have been written in 1877, because she mentions that her father is 78 years old. Things are not going well with her and her husband. She writes:

"...Mr. Waller was in very bad health all last summer and fall, he had carbuncles a long time which confined him to his chair which was followed by a billious spell. In December he was taken with rhumatizm and was not able to do any work until March. Since that time he has been very well. Our hired man left us while he was still sick last summer, consequently we made no crop last year and the times being so hard, we found it difficult to make both ends meet. All of these things taken together kept me from feeling like writing.
It has fallen to my lot in this world to be poorer than any of my near relatives and I think I would enjoy a competency more than any of them. it seems to me the more they make, the closer they get. We have no hired hands this year. We rented out our corn land and Mr. Waller has a tobacco crop which he is working himself with an occasional hand by day. I am glad to day it is a fine piece of tobacco, the best we have seen this year. But the corn crop is almost a total failure in this neighbourhood and also in many other places, We have not had rain enough to wet the ground since first of June...."

Olive also speaks of a number of family members, including her father Stokely, her brother Jasper, and her half-brothers Leslie, James, and Dick. Her husband Frank was to die within the year on March 15, 1878.

==================

More still from a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

******* There is another letter from Olive, dated January 14, 1888, and written to her Aunt Mary Frances (Anderson) Waggener in Carthage, Illinois. Olive is apparently in Lakewood, Tennessee, which is near Nashville. She talks mostly about the death of her Aunt Sarah, and does not talk much about herself, but it appears that she is alone. Her husband Frank had been dead about 10 years. She talks of going to "stay with Buddy and Lulu this winter," who are presumably her cousin Lulu Mason and her husband Meriwether, who are apparently in Christian County, Kentucky.

****** Another letter from Olive, dated August 23, 1888, and written to her cousin Mary O'Neil Waggener, who is apparently still in Illinois. Olive is writing from Trenton, Kentucky. She speaks quite a bit about her health, which seems to be improving, and the declining health of her brother Jasper. She speaks of having little money, outside of money that Jasper has been apparently giving her. She talks about wanting to go to Cincinnati to see Jasper, as well as Illinois and Texas.

****** Another letter from Olive to Mary, dated only March 7, although it must have been between 1889 and 1896. She is writing from Austin Texas, and tells Mary to contact her by writing care of her half-brother Professor Leslie Waggener. She reports that her health is pretty good, but her eyesight is going, making it hard for her to read and write. She does not mention her brother Jasper.

Even more from a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

****** There is one more letter from Olive to Mary, the last one of the series written by her, dated April 12, 1905. She is is Austin, Texas still, although her half-brother Prof. Leslie Waggener had died 9 years earlier. She doesn't really talk much about herself, although she says she hopes she'll "grow better and stronger." She did mention that she she had returned to Kentucky the previous summer for a visit.

***** There is one more letter in the series dated March 10, 1909, and written by Lulu Mason to Mary O. Waggener. Although she talks about many family members, she does not mention Olive, which would seem to indicate that she was dead by then.

From Barbara Dudley Brown:

Frank's obituary appeared in the Clarksville Weekly Chronicle (23 March 1878, p3) and the Clarksville Tobacco Leaf (Mr. 21, 1878, p. 3). From Gannaway's Obituaries Compiled From Newspapers, V2. Public Library Clarksville, TN. I did not view the original in the paper. I am guessing that issue wasn't available to me.

Waller, Mr. Frank. Died 15 Mar 1878. Lived near Idaho Springs. Buried at Dudley Cemetery.

I walked the Dudley Cemetery a number of years ago. I think it was c1984. The cemetery was in bad shape. I do not remember seeing a headstone for Frank Waller. However, Anita W. Darnell and Ruth A. Hays cemetery transcriptions (don't have exact name handy) book includes him in the Dudley Cemetery.

Waller, Rank. "My beloved husband," Dec. 12, 1832-Mar. 5, 1878.

I believe the stone was difficult to read hence Rank instead of Frank. Also there is a difference in the day of death. Although I haven't viewed the original article and can't check day of death, I am guessing the #1 on the headstone wasn't visible.


  ii.   JASPER A. WAGGENER, b. July 23, 1834, Kentucky; d. August 09, 1902.

From the 1850 Federal Census of District #1, Todd County, Kentucky, page 236, taken August 24, 1850, household #293; from ancestry.com, image 83 of 100. Jasper is listed in the household of his father and step-mother:

Jasper ------; age- 15, male, born- Kentucky, in school

===============

From a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

****** There is a letter written by Jasper's 1st cousin, Sue P. Samuel (daughter of Jasper's aunt Sue (Anderson) Samuel), to Mary (Anderson) Waggener (also his aunt), with the heading "Trenton, Ky., Sept. 19, 1854." Sue speaks briefly of Jasper and his sister Olive. Sue notes that Olive lives near to her, apparently in Todd County, Kentucky, and that "Cousin Jap" is apparently living in Cape Giraidan, Missouri, and running some kind of store. The letter reads:

"Cousin Olive is at home and not married yet. I like her very mutch but do not go there often she is very affectionate Cousin Jap also is a very good boy he is living in Cape ........(must be Giraidan) Missouri and I hope he will do well.... Charles and Cousin Jap are merchandising..."

==============

From United States National Archives. Civil War Compiled Military Service Records [database online] Provo, UT: Ancestry.com, 1999-:

Name: Waggener, Jasper
Unit: Tems, Brigade, Gen. Staff, C. S. A.
Rank- Induction: Captain
Rank- Discharge: A. A. G.
Notes- Wagoner, Jasfer
Allegiance: Confederate

I have been able to learn a little bit about Jasper's service, but not much. I have confirmed that he was a Captain and I believe his unit was the 18th Tennessee, although I don't know what kind of unit it was. I know that he was captured and in the fall of 1863, he was in the Civil War Prison at Johnson's Island, near Sandusky, Ohio. I am pretty sure that the rank "A. A. G." stands for Assistant Adjutant General. I believe that this means that he served as a staff officer for a Brigade General.

=============

From an account of the service in the Confederate Forces during the Civil War, of Jasper's half-brother Leslie Waggener, Sr., as reported some time later by his son Leslie Waggener, Jr. This was found and shared by Martha Boyden Alt. For the most part the account was about Leslie Sr.'s experience during and after the Battle of Shiloh. The battle, also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing took place on April 6-7, 1862, near the town of Shiloh, Tennessee. Leslie Sr. was severely wounded on the first day of the battle, and was moved the next day with the withdrawing Confederate forces, to Corinth, Mississippi. He reportedly spent about a month there. Then according to the account, he was taken to near Holly Springs, Mississippi, where he stayed for another month or so. Reportedly Jasper visited him there in what must have been June or July in 1862. Leslie Jr. wrote:

"... he (Leslie) was carried to the nearby home of Col ???, near Holly Springs, Mississippi, which family was on intimate terms with his family. Here he stayed a month or so, gradually improving. While here his brother Capt. Jasper A. Waggener, of the Confederate Army, came to see him and it just happened that the very day he was with him a Federal agent came to the house. My uncle, Capt. Jasper A. Waggener, had departed in haste and I have heard him say that as he told my father good bye as he lay on the cot on the veranda he felt sure that he would never see him again..." (Leslie did recover.)

==============

Martha Boyden Alt also obtained and shared a series of letters written to and from Leslie Waggener, Sr., during the later part of the Civil War in 1863-64. Jasper is mentioned a couple of times in the letters, noting that he was being held as a prisoner-of-war at the Johnson's Island Civil War Prison. This was near the shore of Lake Erie, about 2 1/2 miles northwest of Sandusky, Ohio. It was apparently where a number of captured Confederate Officers were held. It is not indicated in the letters how it was that he came to be captured. It was indicated that he was apparently a member of the 18th Tennessee Regiment, although it wasn't mentioned what kind of unit this was.

In a letter dated October 4, 1863, Jasper's step-mother, Ellen T. (Ross) Waggener is writing an apparent friend of the family. She writes:

"... I received a letter from Jasper at Johnson's Island, yesterday. He was quite well, and had met with several officers of his old reg. the 18th Tennessee, with whom he was missing..."

Then another letter, also written by Jasper's step-mother Ellen, to her son Leslie. The letter was dated November 19, 1863, a little over a month later:

"... Jasper is a prisoner at Johnson's Island. He writes that he is well and having quite a good time. He had various amusements and plenty to eat in that respect, faring much better that the poor Federal prisoners in Richmond..."

==============

More from a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

****** There is a letter sent by Jasper's sister, Olive Kay (Waggener) Waller, to her cousin in Illinois. Olive is apparently in either Tennessee or Kentucky, not far from Trenton, and the date is August 29, 1877. She writes about news of a number of family members who she apparently keeps in touch with, including Jasper. She writes:

"...I met Brother at Pa's this summer. He was looking very well, his business has been somewhat dull the past two seasons on account of the hard times..."

===============

From the 1880 Federal Census of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, district 135, page 22/ 195C, taken June 7, 1880, listed in an apparently large boarding house at 3rd and Vine; from ancestry.com, image 23 of 30:

Waggner, Jasper A.; male, age- 45, single, occupation- Salesman Clothing, born- Kentucky, parents born- Virginia

I am pretty sure that this is Jasper. Cincinnati is the area that his mother's family came from, and there are several other references that he was living in this area.

===============

More still from a series of transcribed family letters sent to me by Judy Senter:

****** There is another letter from Olive, dated January 14, 1888, and written to her Aunt Mary Frances (Anderson) Waggener in Carthage, Illinois. Olive is apparently in Lakewood, Tennessee, which is near Nashville. She mentions Jasper, writing:

"...Brother Jasper's health is very poor he is at Hot Springs, Ark...."

***** Another letter from Olive, dated August 23, 1888, and written to her cousin Mary O'Neil Waggener, who is apparently still in Illinois. Olive is writing from Trenton, Kentucky. She speaks at greater length about his declining health and all the treatment he has been receiving. Jasper is apparently supporting her. She writes:

"...I am sorry I cannot give so good a report of brother Jasper, he has been trying everything that Drs. and climate could do, for a year and while he is some better, he is far from well. He thinks he cannot stay out of business any longer, another years rest would do him a great deal of good. He stayed in the Hospital in New York City two months, was treated by Electricity and burning of the back as his spine is also involved. he was then sent to island of Nantucket to get the benefit of the damp salt air, where he staid a month, then went to Northern N.Y. near Saratoga. His Dr. says everything depends on rest, as he was thoroughly broken down. I am looking for a letter from him every day saying he was back in Cincinnati as he said he must go to work..."

From Logan County, Kentucky Cemeteries; copyright by Logan County Genealogical Society, 1986:

There is a record of Jasper in the Maple Grove Cemetery, with the records of his parents:

Waggener, Jasper A., July 23, 1834- August 9, 1902, buried at Austin, Texas

There is also a record there of Jasper's half brother Leslie, who also was a veteran of the Confederate Army. The record seems to indicate that Leslie is buried with or near to Jasper in Austin.

It is of the family of Belle's sister Ellen and her husband Alexander P. Wooldridge. "Mrs. Belle Waggener" is in the photo sitting next to her sister Ellen. Since Belle and her husband Thomas were living there in 1900, it appears that perhaps Ellen and Alexander were visiting them.
