My GGgrandfather John Wesley Wagner b.July 24,1854 Noble Co, OH d.April 30,1938 Peru, Miami Co, IN.
I have a paper passed down to me from my great aunt listing siblings to JW Wagner as: William, Richard, Rachel, Elizabeth, and probably others. Under William, children: Sherman, John "JT" (wonderful to know that William named a child after his brother!), Amy, and probably others. 2 children for JT: Blanche (Lysle?) and Mary.
I have recently ordered a death certificate for JW Wagner and learned that parents are Barney Wagner b. Maryland and Elizabeth Elliot b. Ireland. Known brothers to Barney are Isaac and John.
I have not been able to find this family in census records before 1880, nor any trace to the parents birth/life/death in Ohio.
JW Wagner married Sarah Jeffries May 25, 1875 in Temperanceville, Belmont Co, OH and are found in Tyler Co, WV 1880 census.
Have lots of info to share about my family, and would love to learn more.
