Henry Waggoner I is the oldest Waggoner ancestor in my database. Iím his 5th great-grandson.

Henry Waggoner I resided in Russell County, Virginia. It is unknown if he was born in Virginia or was possibly an immigrant. I think he may be one of the three Waggoner brothers from Germany in the family story that has been handed down over the generations, but have no proof.

I know Henry Waggoner I served in Captain Doak's Fincastle Militia, Augusta Co,,VA in 1774. I know Feb. 6, 1775 Henry Waggoner, I. obtained a survey under the Loyal Company for 476 acres in Wythe Co. Virginia. Henry Waggoner I. died, at age 74, in Russell Co., Virginia in about 1809. Henry was probably living with one of his children, possibly a married daughter. I know about the lawsuit Sept. 8, 1809 Stealey vs. Waggoner-O.S. 192; N.S.68 and his heirs.

I only have descendants of three of his ten children. I know nothing of Lewis Waggoner, Lindsey Waggoner, Catherine Waggoner, Barbara Waggoner, Margaret Waggoner, Susannah Waggoner or John Waggoner

In all my years of searching I have never found any living relatives that descend from these children. I have five different Waggoner family lines in my database of over 9,500 names. I am almost certain at least one of those family lines ties directly back into one of Henry Waggoner Iís children and I just donít know it yet. .

I am looking for the descendants of Henryís children, Lewis Waggoner, Lindsey Waggoner, Catherine Waggoner, Barbara Waggoner, Margaret Waggoner, Susannah Waggoner and John Waggoner.

Any and all information is greatly appreciated.

Thank You
