I'm also a decendant of Johannes (John) Wygal and his wife Barbara of Montgomery Co., VA. They are also recorded in Wythe Co., and Pulaski Co.,VA. I'm connected through their daughter Mary Wygal who married Meredith Raines, probably in Montgomery Co. They lived in Wythe Co., VA. I recently came across 2 books that chronicle the Wygals. The first was the "The Darsts of Virginia" which said the Wygals came from Switzerland to Pennsylvania in 1750. John went to VA. in the 1760's, tho some of his children went to NC first. The second book is called " Early Adventures on Western Waters, Vol. 2. By Mary Kegley, It cites land, revoltutionary war and probate records in Wythe Co., VA. I understand from the Darst book that John had several wifes, does anyone think that Barbara was a "Wiser"?
