Hi I am fairly new to family research and I was having a easy time till I got to this person. it shows him as the father to one of my grandfathers but then I find information that he had no sons. I have clear records to John WAGNER 1790 – 1850 and I am finding notes and such that John Waggoner and Christiana where his parents.How do I sort this out and find the right parent(s)? I am 2000 miles from Vermont and no one family there that knows anything. I have pasted the following information on him and will also paste the record after his death.
Death Jul 1798 in Highgate, Franklin, Vermont, USA
Marriage 1 CHRISTIANA b: BEF 1755
Has Children Catherine WAGGONER b: in New York
Has Children Elizabeth WAGGONER b: BEF 1770
Has Children Charity WAGGONER b: BEF 1780
