Hi Almeda,
You have most of the information right. John and Anna Waugaman, are buried in Denmark Manor Cemetery as is a lot of the family.
As for the spelling of Wagaman to Waugaman, the story goes that John prefered Wagaman and used it till he died, but his children were using Waugaman. The name change is the result of schools and teachers. If you see the spelling of Waugaman you can bet, you came from Westmoreland and John.
John's brother lived in Bedford Co. with the spelling of Waugerman, but we are all related.
Bill Waugaman
