Subject: [BRE] Joel Wagoman line
Date: Tue, 1 Nov 2011 22:03:45 -0400
The information I have on Joel Wagoman, married to Elizabeth Overholser, is that he was the son of Christian Wagoman and wife Anna Margaret (Margaretha) Cover/Cober/Kover. Here is what I know about Joel's line:
Three brothers, Christian, William and John Wagemann were the earliest known members of this family line. Various later spellings were Wagaman, Wagoman, Wogoman, Wogomon, Wagamon.) William was born in PA about 1752, John and Christian were born about 1760 - 1766. They are found in early tax records in Somerset and Bedford Counties, PA. They resettled in Montgomery County, Ohio, about 1805.
Christian, born about 1760 in PA married Anna Margaretha Cover/Kober on 29 Apr 1792 in Somerset Co., PA. Margaret was the daughter of Peter and Margaretha (Stroeher/Strayer) Kober, she d. abt. 1836.
Christian and wife Margaret (Anna Margaretha) were the parents of Elizabeth, Catherine, John, Joel, Margaret, Hannah and Mary.
Their son JOHN, b. 30 Jun 1797 in Berlin, Somerset Co., Pa, d. 30 Jan 1884 in Preble Co., Ohio; buried Trissel Cemetery.
John married Sarah Weidner about 1822 in Montgomery Co., OH. Sarah was born in VA, d. 1842 in Perry Twp., Montgomery Co., OH. Their son was David W. Wagoman, b. 03 Oct 1824. Other children are unknown to me.
Note: if John was buried in the Trissel Cemetery, could he have married a second time to a Trissel?
Son JOEL was born in Brothers Valley Twp., Somerset Co., PA 19 May 1803; married Elizabeth Overholzer/Overholser in Montgomery Co., OH, 2 Feb 1826. Elizabeth was the daughter of John Overholser and Susanna Snider (daughter of Jacob Snider Sr. and Margaret Studebaker)
Joel and Elizabeth (Overholser) Wogaman had 14 children: Hannah, David, John, Barbary, Mary, Susanna (Susan), Benjamin, Christian (or Christopher), Elizabeth, Joel, Eli (or Elias), Catherine, Lydia and Michael.
If any of the above information on the early ancestors of Joel Wogaman is incorrect, please share, as records on this family differ.
