T.J. Hagler of Huntsville, AL. published and copyrighted his TRAIL OF THE HAGLERS which in the main is the line from Europe to North Carolina in the mid 1700`s. Then his great, great grandfather relocated to southern Alabama in 1836.
Appendix V is a whole seperate spiral bound volume consisting of several thousand descendants of the immigrant including spouses and families. For some unknown reason he used the Mormon way of listing each individual by a rin number and there is no index. There is a year of birth and year of marriage and year of death listed. Consequently, unless a person sort of knows his or her ancestrial family it will take some time to find your particular line leading back to the immigrant.
It was Mr. Hagler`s intent that when he retired (he was a rocket scientist) he was going to republish and he continued to compile descendant information that was submitted to him. He retired in 2002 and as I understand he has decided not to republish or even publish Appendix V with the now nearly 20,000 descendants of ol` John Hagler that he has in his database.
I have been urging him to allow the Latter Day Saints to have the right to copy the narrative and the genealogy in order that people such as yourself could view the material. He has indicated an interest but he has put his food down as to having it put on the internet as there are people listed such as myself who are still living. He is fearful of being a party to identity theft. Personally, I don`t see a danger. Dates of birth, death and marriage are a matter of public record and considerably more personal information can be obtained about a person by contacting a states department of vital statistics. In order for a persons identity to be stolen additional information has to be obtained like Social Security numbers, credit cards and such.
