I'm sorry, I don't have any more information.
I know Peter Joseph Wagener lived in Chicago, or at least was naturalized there. By 1890 he was in Roseville, CA, and then bought a farm in Dixon, Solano county, CA.
His wife's name was Barbara. His children were Helen, Annie, Katherine, Sadie (Elizabeth?) and Mathew. They were born between 1869 and 1879. We believe the older children were born in Germany. Mathew (1869)
eventually went on the New York stage during WWI and changed his name legally to Lester Alden. He died in the Chicago area in the 1960,s.
I tried to get Mathew's death ceertificate in the Cook county area, but was unsuccessful. Mathew was the father of Holt W. Alden, graduate of Northwestern and Northwestern dental School. Holt's name was originally Holt Wagener, but he changed his when his father did. Sue Alden
