From the Oconto County Reporter, Thursday, May 7, 1908, page 9
Underneath the August John tidbit is the following:
Edward Scofield, A. McAllister and George Beyer of Oconto came up to Gillett Sunday in an automobile to attend the funeral of Mrs. F. W. John
Oconto County Reporter, 13 December 1895

Mrs. Chas. Paul was called home by the sickness of her mother, Mrs. W. John.


Because Johanna and FW named one of their sons Henry “Donsing” John it is believed that the Donsing surname is somehow related to Johanna’s side of the family. Possibly her mother’s birth name. The other reason this is believed to be true is because their daughter Clara’s son, Alfred Wilhelm, was adopted by a Mary Donsing who had married Peter Lorig, they lived in Milwaukee, from where the Johns had moved from when they headed to Oconto County. (Clara John and her husband had died).

Because we know the name of FW’s parents, is seems likely this link would be on Johanna’s side, if there is a link at all.

William Wadsworth (26 February 1594 [poss.] Long Buckby, England - 15 October 1675 Hartford, Connecticut) was an early pioneer of New England, a founder of Hartford, Connecticut

William’s exact origins have challenged descendants and researchers over the centuries. Recent researchers have postulated that the William Wadsworth, who is born 1594 in Long Buckby, Northamptonshire, England and baptized on 26 February 1594, the son of William and Elizabeth Wadsworth, is one and the same as the subject of this article. This is not proven, though his age, place and onomastics point strongly to this connection.

William Wadsworth’s name appears on the top of a list of those who have taken the "Oath of Allegiance" and desired to be "transported to New England", dated 22 June 1632. William Wadsworth is found, again, at the top, on the list of 123 passengers on the ship Lion, who arrived in Boston Harbor, Massachusetts Colony on Sunday, September 16, 1632. He states his wife and three children are with him. Soon after his arrival to Boston he moved to “Newtowne” now Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was made a Freeman of this town on 2 November 1632. He built his home on the west side of Holyoke Street near Harvard Square. He was chosen to be on the Board of Selectmen for Newtowne, and held this position from 1634 to 1635. [The Lyon departed London June 22, 1632, with 123 passengers (including 50 children) and arrived at Boston September 16 , 1632. "They had been twelve weeks aboard and eight weeks from 'La nd's End'." (Winthrop's "Journal", I, 92)]

William Wadsworth was one of the original Founders of Hartford, Connecticut. In 1635 Rev. Thomas Hooker and his followers from Chelmsford, England had arrived to Newtowne and soon, after dissenting with Puritan leaders in Massachusetts, made up their minds, in council, to move westward. In June 1636, William moved with his family and others of the congregation to a settlement they named Hartford. He was an original proprietor of the town. His home-lot, in 1639, was on the west side of the map from Seth Grant's to Sentinel Hill, extending along what is now the south side of Asylum St., from Trumbull St. to Ford St.

At Hartford, William was active in the community and held prominent public office positions throughout his life. William was chosen "Townsman" of Hartford in 1642, 1655, 1661, and again in 1673; he was also chosen Constable in 1651; he was the town’s List and Rate Maker in 1668; he was elected Deputy Constable nearly every session between October 1656 and May 1675 [probably due to age and failing health]. William died in 1675. His will was dated 16 June 1675 and it was inventoried on 18 October 1675 at a value of £1677. 13. 9. (approx. $300,000 US).

William Wadsworth married:
1. Sarah Talcott (1600 - 24 Oct 1643) of Braintree, Essex, England
Sarah Wadsworth (1626 - 04 Oct 1648) m. John Wilkock, Jr. on 17 Sep 1646
William Wadsworth (1628 – d. young)
John Wadsworth, Hon. (1630 - 06 Nov 1689) m. Sarah Stanley on 14 Apr 1652
Mary Wadsworth (1632 – 1685) m. Thomas Stoughton in 1656

2. Elizabeth Stone (2 October 1621 – 1682) on 2 July 1644 at Hartford, Connecticut and had the following children:
Elizabeth Wadsworth (17 May 1645 - 12 Mar 1715) m. John Terry on 27 Nov 1662
Samuel Wadsworth (20 Oct 1646 – Aug 1682) unmarried
Joseph Wadsworth, Capt. (1647 – 1729) m. Elizabeth Talcott <— tradition says he is the person who hid the Connecticut charter from the King’s governor “the Charter Oak” incident
Sarah Wadsworth (17 Mar 1649 - ) m. Jonathan Ashley
Thomas Wadsworth (1651 – Sep 1687) m. Elizabeth
Rebecca Wadsworth (1653 - )

William made his first trip to America in November 1621. " Came this day to Newport News … in the Flying Harte." He sailed with a man who shipped cattle and goats from England and Ireland to the Virginia colony. "On March 22, 1622, the Powhatan Indians of Virginia massacred 350 white colonists in and around Jamestown. Tired of the relentless assaults perpetrated by English settlers and worried about the colony's growth, Powhatan chief Opechancanough hoped that killing one quarter of Virginia's colonists would put an end to the European threat." William left Virginia later that year.

He came again to New England on the "Lyon", arriving in Sept. 1632 with his first wife Sarah Talcott and children. They were some of the earliest inhabitants of Newtown (now Cambridge), MA. William was a member of the first board of Selectmen, in Feb. 1634-5. In 1636 the Wadsworths and a group of one hundred men, women and children, left Newtown to form a new settlement on the Connecticut River later known as Hartford, CT. Their houselot in Hartford was nearly co-extensive with the square enclosed by Asylum, Trumbull, and West Pearl Streets. William's first wife died and he married Elizabeth in 1645. Her brother was the Reverend Samuel Stone.

"[William's] life from the time he settled in Hartford was busy, though uneventful. The town records show that he was a selectman, townsman and constable between 1638-9, when the Fundamental Orders were adopted, and 1656, and that he was a deputy at almost every session of the General Court from that year up to the day of his death."

WADSWORTH, William (I2658)
2980 Wilhelm WAGGONER was born in 1706 in Steinberg, Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany. He immigrated on 25 Oct 1748 to arrive in America at the Port of Philadelphia on the ship "Patience and Margaret". He died in 1755 in Hardy County, West Virginia.

He died about 1761 in Oldfield, Hampshire County, West Virginia.

Arrived in America at the Port of Philadelphia on Friday, October 25, 1748 on the ship "Patience and Margaret." With him were his wife, Agnes Fleischer Waggoner, and two children and his brother in law, Balthasar Fleischer. He settled at Whitemarsh, just west of Germantown to the northwest of Philadelphia. This was a strong German settlement. Records are at the St. Michael's Evangelical Lutheran Church. It appears Wilhelm and family spent some time in Montgomery Co. Pennsylvania, before moving to the South Branch Settlement in Hampshire Co. [now Hardy County, West Virginia.]

About 1754, Wilhelm and his wife, Agnes, along with his children settled in the wilderness settlement on the South Branch of the Potomac near Oldfield and Romney in Hampshire County, Virginia. Sometime between 1758-1764 he and his family were attacked by what is believed to be a Delaware (Lenai Lenape) raiding party. He was killed and scalped while working in his field. His daughter, Marie, was kidnapped and killed in a rescue attempt. His son, (Johannes ) Peter, was kidnapped and taken to the Great Lakes. Peter eventually gained freedom and returned to Philadelphia from Canada and became a shoemaker. This story is from Allman's book on Lewis Wetzel. It's documentation is in the Draper Manuscripts, 11-E-124, in a letter from Lewis Bonnett, Jr. to Draper in 1845.

The name in America on this line became Waggoner, but was spelled Wagner in Germany and their church records.

There were 2 Waggoner massacres. It is sometimes confused to be only one because both incidents involve people with the same names; Mary, Elizabeth, and Peter Waggoners. Both incidents involve the same family line.

The first, was the attack on Wilhelm Waggoner's family on South Branch around 1763 or 1764.

The second attack was on his son, John Waggoner's family on Hacker's Creek May 7, 1792. th another female prisoner, con    "My Mothers ancestors emigrated, from what was then called Dutch Flanders about the same time and settled on the South Branch and there her father built a small Fort and one day the old man being out in the field at work a piece from the Fort with two of his children, a boy whose name was Peter and a girl named Mary.
The Indians came upon them killed and scalped the old man taking the boy and Mary who was then a young woman, captive, the Indians brightly judging that they would be followed by the whites divided their party, each party had a prisoner and when the whites pursued they happened to take the track of the party which had Mary and two or three horses.
The whites came upon early in the morning and fired upon the Indians. Whilst around the fire. Killing one and wounded another. But unluckily one of the balls proved fatal to poor Mary.
She was shot through the body and died the next day. A young man that was to been married to her in a few days was along and warily lamented poor Mary's fate.
Peter he was carried to their towns, remained with them some time and than finding his way down the lakes to Montreal with some Frenchmen, then making his way to Philadelphia and there binding himself to the shoe and boot trade and died there. I expect some of his off-springs are there at this time.”

In another letter comes the following:
“Capt. Lewis Bonnet Sr. was a Scout and once a girl was captured and Bonnett and others pursued -- among them a man affianced, who swore he would kill all the Indians, he fired and accidentally killed his intended."
  Another excerpt from the same letter:
“Around the year 1763-4 on the South Branch of the Potomac, on a farm near Old Field, we find Agnes Waggoner a widow. All in one day she lost her husband Wilhelm, (ca 57 yrs.), killed in an Indian raid, her step-daughter Mary (ca 19 yrs.) was captured and accidentally killed, when a party tried to rescue her from her captives, and she lost a step-son John Peter (ca 16 yrs) who was captured by the same Indians who had killed her husband, and she not knowing if he was dead or alive.”

    Agnes was left with her step-daughter Anna Elizabeth (age 14 yrs) and her son Johannes (age 12 years) and daughter Barbara (age 7 years) and piece of land and no future in sight.

The family arrived at the Port of Philadelphia, PA October 25, 1748 aboard the ship "Patience and Margaret" from Rotterdam, Holland. They lived in Montgomery County, PA. Their daughter Anna Elizabeth was baptized in St. Michaels Church April 24, 1749. Apparently Wilhelm's wife died shortly after this baptism and he remarried to Agnesa ----. They moved to present day Hardy County VA c. 1754 and in 1755, marauding Indians killed Wilhelm and captured daughter Mary and son Peter. A would be rescuer killed Mary in the course of shooting at the Indians. John Peter survived his captivity and settled in Philadelphia and was listed in the 1790 census of that city as a shoemaker with five sons and four daughters. (Source: Don Norman)

David Armstrong of Elkins feels that the PA baptismal record of her daughter that lists her as Anna Elizabeth is wrong; a Wilhem Wagner and Balsar Fleischer (brother of an Agnes) both disappeared from Germany, and the same names appeared on the same ship that year in Philadelphia.

a band of Indians, recognizing him by the strong family resemblance. Baker at  once wrote to the elder Waggoner, telling him of his discovery, and the latter soon visited the Paint Creek band, with a view to inducing his son to return.

About the middle of May,1792, a party of savages came upon a branch of Hacker's creek, and approaching late in the evening a field recently cleared by John Waggoner, found him seated on a log, resting himself after the labors of the day. In this company of Indians was the since justly celebrated General Tecumseh, who leaving his companions to make sure of those in the house, placed his gun on the fence and fired deliberately at Waggoner. The leaden messenger of death failed of its errand, and passing through the sleeve of his shirt, left Waggoner un-injured, to try his speed with the Indian. Taking a direction opposite the house, to avoid coming in contact with the savages there, he outstripped his pursuer, and got safely off. In the mean time, those who had been left to operate against those of the family who were at the house, finding a small boy in the yard, killed and scalped him ; and proceeding on, made prisoners of Mrs. Waggoner and her six children, and departed immediately with them, lest the escape of her husband, should lead to their instant pursuit. They were disappointed in this expectation. A company of men was soon  collected, who repaired to the then desolate mansion, and from thence followed on the trail of the savages. About a mile from  the house, one of the children was found where its brains had been beaten out with a club, and the scalp torn from its head.

A small distance farther, lay Mrs. Waggoner and two others of her children, their lifeless bodies mangled in the most barbarous and shocking manner. Having thus freed themselves from the principal impediments to a rapid retreat, the savages hastened on; and the pursuit was unavailing. They reached their towns with the remaining prisoners  - two girls and a boy- and avoided chastisement for the outrage. 

The elder of the two girls did not long remain with them; but escaping to the neighborhood of Detroit with another female prisoner, continued there until after the treaty of 1795. Her sister abided with her captors until the close of the war; and the boy until during the war of 1812. He was then seen among some friendly Indians, and bearing a strong resemblance in features to his father, was recognized as Waggoner's captive son.

He had married a squall by whom he had several children, was attached to his manner of life, and for a time resisted every importunity, to withdraw himself from among them. When his father visited him, it was with difficulty he was enticed to return to  the haunts of his childhood, and the associates of his younger days, even on a temporary visit. When however he did return to them, the attention and kindly conduct of his friends, prevailed with him to remain, until he married and took up his permanent abode amid the habitations of civilized men. Still with the  feelings natural to a father, his heart yearns towards his children in the forest; and at times he seems to lament that he ever forsook them.
Drake, in Aboriginal Races of North America (15th ed.), p. 616, cites the Waggoner massacre as "the first exploit in which we find Tecumseh engaged."

L. V. Mc Whorter sends me this interesting note, giving the  local tradition regarding the affair: 
" John Waggoner lived on Jesse's Run, more than two miles above its junction with Hacker's Creek. While engaged in burning logs in his clearing, he was sitting upon a log, with a handspike lying across his lap. It was thought that Tecumseh mistook this tool for a gun, and was nervous. But three in number, the Indians had entered the district with some trepidation. Over Sunday, while the settlers were holding religious services in West's Fort, the savages lay in a neighboring ravine. The dogs of the settlement barked furiously at them, and ran toward their hiding place, trying to lead their masters ; but the latter supposed that the animals had merely scented wolves, hence paid no attention to them.
Tecumseh was but thirty paces from Waggoner when he fired, and it is singular that he missed, for the latter was a large man and in fair view. Waggoner sprang up and started for his cabin, a short distance only, but when about fifteen yards away saw an Indian chasing one of the children around the house. Waggoner was unarmed; his gun was in the house, but he feared to enter, so ran for help to the cabin of Hardman, a neighbor. But Hardman was out hunting, and there was no gun left there. The screams of his family were now plainly heard by Waggoner, and he was with difficulty restrained from rushing back to help them, unarmed. Jesse Hughes carried the news into the fort, and a rescue party at once set out. 

Mrs. Waggoner and her three youngest children had been carried across the ridge to where is now Rev, Mans- field McWhorter's farm, on McKenley's Run, and here they were tomahawked and scalped. 

Henry McWhorter helped to carry the bodies to the fort, but made no mention of their being' mangled in the most barbarous and shocking manner.

The boy Peter, then eight years old, remained with the Indians for twenty years, The manner of his  return, as related to me by Mr. McWhorter, was singular, and furnishes an interesting and instructive romance of the border, One Baker, one of John Waggoner's neighbors, went to Ohio to " squat," and on Paint Creek saw Peter with a band of Indians, recognizing him by the strong family resemblance. Baker at  once wrote to the elder Waggoner, telling him of his discovery, and the latter soon visited the Paint Creek band, with a view to inducing his son to return home. But Peter was loth to go. He was united to a squaw, and by her had two children. In tears, she bitterly opposed his going. When finally he yielded to parental appeals, he promised her he would soon be back again. When the time for his return to the forest came, his relatives kept him under guard; when it had passed, he was afraid to return to his Indian relatives, having broken his word. Gradually he became reconciled in a measure to his new surroundings, but was ever melancholy, frequently lamenting that he had left his savage family. " Some time after his return to civilization," continues McWhorter, " an Indian woman, Supposed to be his wife, passed through the Hacker Creek settlements, inquiring for Peter, and going on toward the East. She appeared to be demented, and sang snatches of savage songs, Peter never knew of her presence, nor would any one inform her of his whereabouts. He was reticent about his life among the Indians, and no details of that feature  of his career became known to his white friends. Tecumseh, who is said to have been born on Hacker's Creek, possibly at a village near the mouth of Jesse's Run, visited the White settlements there, after the peace, and told the whites of his experiences in connection with the Waggoner massacre.
"Famed Tecumseh Was A West Virginian"
Beckley Post-Herald
January 27, 1962

Any list of outstanding men who were born in West Virginia territory and became famous leaders of their kind should include the name of Tecumseh. This celebrated Indian chief is said to have been born on Hacker's Creek, most likely in the Indian village at the mouth of Jesse's Run, in Lewis County.

Hacker's Creek got its [current] name from its first white settler, John Hacker. This Indian village site was at the point where the old Weston-Clarksburg road passed over Hacker's Creek. Today the place is known as JaneLew. But some of the lustre of JaneLew comes from its being in the vicinity of the birthplace of Tecumseh, Shawnee Indian leader.

Tecumseh's first raid on white settlers was made on Hacker's Creek upon the family of John Waggoner [son of Wilhelm and his first wife] in May, 1792. That May evening of almost 170 years ago found Waggoner on his place on Jesse's Run over two miles above the point it empties into Hacker's Creek. Waggoner had been burning some logs and was sitting on a log with a big handspike in his hand, resting from his labors.

Tecumseh, who had been lying in wait for a shot at John, was nervous when he fired because he took the handspike in the hands of the huge Waggoner to be a gun. Although only 30 paces from Waggoner when he shot at him, Tecumseh's aim went bad. The bullet passed through the sleeve of Waggoner's shirt. Unhurt, Waggoner darted homeward to find his home being attacked by some of the Tecumseh band. They killed a small boy in the yard of the house and carried Mrs. Waggoner and her children away captive.

A mile or so distant the Indians killed another of the children. After they had gone a bit further the savages slew Mrs. Waggoner and two other children. In a few days the Indians reached their towns across the Ohio with the remaining two girls and a boy. In time the girls were returned. However, the boy took up a homestead, so to speak, with the Indians. He was Peter Waggoner, eight when captured, and remained with the Indians 20 years. He married a squaw and had children by her. He was found later and induced to return to his childhood area. There at Jane Lew he lived to the age of 93, there having married a white woman and by her raised another family. At Jane Lew if you will turn aside to Harmony Cemetery you will find the grave of Peter Waggoner, the last survivor of the John Waggoner family massacre.

Tecumseh and his actions led to the election of a President of the United States in 1840.

Chief Tecumseh was a smart man. Having been forced to move many times by white men, he saw himself and the other Indians being crowded out. He wanted to keep the Midwest for them. One day a military officer came to his wigwam to tell Tecumseh that he and his tribe must move farther west. They sat down on a log to talk it over.

In a few minutes the chief asked the general to move over a little further. This was repeated until the general was near the end of the log. Then Tecumseh gave the general a shove and said, "Move again!" At the end of the log, the general said, "I can't; I'm on the end of the log!" Then Tecumseh told him that this was the way it was with the Indians, yet the white man kept saying to the red man, "Move on!" To remedy matters, Tecumseh organized the tribes of the Midwest to drive out white settlers.

Elkins, WV 4 May 1994
Dear Bill:
Enclosed are the materials we talked about on the Kittles and Waggoners. I should not ever quote history from memory, as I had the wrong petition, it was not the September 1776 petition that showed Abraham Kittle but the 1780 one (enclosed). Also, I had told you that he had to be in the Tygart Valley as the law required settlement before 1 Jan 1778 to get a land grant, but I have looked back at the land commission record and notice that Kittle's lands were certified as assignee of others, so he may not have arrived before 1780.
Also find enclosed the material on the Waggoner ("Wagner") family in Germany. I assert that the connection is proven and that the Waggoners and Fleshers are cousins. The snag is the listing of Wilhelm Wagner's wife as "Anna Elizabeth" in the 1749 baptism in Pennsylvania. But one must keep in mind that MISTAKES DO HAPPEN in church records, see HCJ Vol X #3 page 109 for a mention of a similar mistake in my family.
To understand the Wagner connection look at the enclosed family group sheet on the family of Andreas Fleischer of Ober-Seemen, Germany. Notice that the brother of Agnes Fleischer Wagner is Balser Fleischer. The baptism in PA that show Mrs. Wagner as Anna Elizabeth has Balser Fleischer as a sponsor. Also, they are adjacent in the ship list. Now look at the enclosed FGS on Wilhelm Wagner. Notice that the Germany documentation accounts for the older son Peter Wagner and for Mary (as "Anna Maria"). I would also point out that I studied the Ober-Seemen church record in detail and that Wilhelm and Agnes (Fleischer) Wagner drop out of the record over there the year your Wilhelm Wagner and Balser Fleischer show up on ship at Philadelphia.
I have been fortunate to have had a good deal of training and experience in German genealogy and that experience tells me that the Waggoner connection to Germany as detailed above is proven.
I still cannot find evidence of that first captivity or of the killing of Wilhelm Waggoner by Indians. If you ever find out where that came from I hope you will let me know.

2997 William Finch Probably First Alamo Settler
Arrived in Kalamazoo County from New York in Spring of 1835
William Finch, who arrived in Kalamazoo County in the spring of 1835 from Niagara County New York, was probably the first settler in Alamo township. He located in what was known for years as the “Finch Settlement” in the extreme northeast portion of the township.

Alamo was organized as a separate township in 1838. It had previously consitituted a part of Cooper Township. Petitioners first selected the name of Bainbridge for the new township, but when it was found that a township, of this name existed in Berrien, the name Alamo was selected in memory of Col. David Crockett and his men who defended the Alamo at San Antonio, Texas, in 183?.

Settle Alamo Centre
First township officers were elected in 1838 as follows: Jesse W. Turner, supervisor; William Taylor, clerk; Asa Reede, Mahlen Everitt, Jesse W. Turner, Nelson Everitt, Horace Eastman, highway commissioners; Garrett Rosa and Josephus Case, collectors(?); Mahon Everitt, John Johnson and John Coshun assessors; J. W. Turner, William Taylor and John Johnson, school inspectors, Simon Sager, Ephraim Case and William H. Finch, constables.
