John, You are most kind - however the Jeremiah I'm searching for was born sometime about 1740 in Southampton, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York Colony.
The story in my Jagger line goes thus:There was an immigrant named Jeremiah Jagger who came to the American Colony in the mid 1600's (some say in 1630) from England.
I have an old copy of a map of the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale that was given to me by other Jagger relatives.The old writings on the map say that
"Jeremiah John Jagger was born here (Southowram) on January 27, 1611.A founder of Stamford, Connecticut in 1640, he was the first Jagger to come to America.His son, Jonathan, settled in Southampton, NY around 1650."
There is one more note on the map that says that Maurice Jagger is a former Mayor of Halifax - and that the info/map were obtained from him.
I don't know if any of this is true, but it is interesting.
Are you a relative of Maurice Jagger, the Halifax Mayor?
Best wishes - and again, thank you for your offer of assistance.If it is possible to verify the data on the earlier Jeremiah Jagger (his birthdate, location......his parents), that would be super!
