Francis Wagner - PA - b.1817 - d.1877
I have a dead end on my family tree I am hoping you can help with.I am searching for information on Francis Wagner and his ancestors.
Francis Wagner was born in Pennsylvania on 11/25/1817, and died in Pennsylvania on 6/18/1877.He was married to Lovina Young on 7/11/1841 at the German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Easton, Northampton, PA.Both Francis and Lovina are buried at Arndts and Messinger Cemetery in Forks Township, Northampton, PA.
They both also spent their last years at the Northampton County almshouse (poor house), and Francis was listed as blind in the 1860 and 1870 census.It appears that their children all went to different places, not sure if that was due to adoption, or extended family members taking them on.
The children of Francis & Lovina Wagner are:
- Samuel Wagner b. 12/21/1841 d. 9/23/1915
- Eliza Wagner b. abt 1844
- Margaret Wagner b. abt 1846
- William H. Wagner b. abt 1849 d. 1/26/1895 (my gg grandfather)
Any information on Francis Wagner would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
