My mother had made photocopies of some pages in "A Collection of upwards of Thirty Thousand Names of German, Swiss, Dutch, French and other Immigrants in Pennsylvania from 1727 to 1776" as she was seeking information on our MARSHALL ancestors.She also ran across the following entries that she felt might possibly have been HAGLER persons for whom the scribe or transcriber used unusual renderings of the German name and handwriting.The names with an asterisk are ones for people who could not write their own name; the name was written by a clerk.
p. 111 - Johan Ludwig Heger p. 143 - Johan Philip Heileger p. 146 - Johan Jacob Hegel p. 162 - Philip Heger* - Joh. Friederich Heyer - Valentin Heyer p. 163 - Jacob Legler p. 172 - Valentin Heger* p. 181 - Philip Haller - Johan Peter Heger
Knowing that in the 1700s, spelling was not as consistent as it is today, it was our opinion that the possible misspellings of HAGLER, coupled with the first names that abound in our ancestors - Johan (John), Philip, Jacob and Peter - were particularly suspect.Do you know of anyone who has done research on the above listed names to be sure as to eliminate them from our HAGLER ancestry?
I descend from Johannes (John) Haggler/Hayglar/Hagler and his wife Barbara (maiden surname unknown). Johannes was born about 1725 and died before or about 1772/1774.Barbara & Johannes were married about 1765.At least some, if not all, their children are: John,II - the cripple ; Jacob, Phillip, Paul, & Barbara.
