Re: Joseph Lagle of GA
I can help somewhat.
Joseph Lagle was the son of a Susan Lagle b. ca. 1840
and an unknown male. She had two children, the eldest was a
daughter Mary C. b. ca. 1864 in NC and the younger by at
least 14 years was Joseph W. b. ca. 1878 in GA. Both used
the Lagle surname and as far as we know, no other. The
first record on Susan is the 1880 GA census.
I am a Lagle researcher and the last active member of a
once much larger group. This particular family has troubled
us since 1980. It is the only Southern Lagle family we can
not pin down. It is almost certainly part of our group but
the exact connection has been elusive.
To put it simply Susan does not fit anywhere as a Lagle
wife or daughter. Its possible we missed a marriage but
very unlikely we missed a daughter unless she was out of
wedlock, raised out side the family, and not reported to
the county (not likely). It is much more likely the Lagle
surname came from the father and not Susan.
When we first contacted the family years ago their tradition
was that the Lagle father was named William. There were 2
William Lagle's who were old enough to have fathered
Susan's two children but neither was a good fit. Both men
married shortly after the end of the Civil War and stayed
in NC until after 1880. If either of these two men is the
father it is out of wedlock. Further it would be very
unlikely that Susan's children shared a father.
That being said given recent developments one of them
actually looks rather possible. I just can't prove it.
