Classification: Query
Caroline Wagner dau of Delilah Braden b Abt 1863 & Frank Wagner of Anderson Co, TN.

I think some time ago; maybe a year or so I posted to the list who I thought maybe were the children of Caroline Wagner.

I feel I may have had them incorrectly stated. So please if you used any of the information I provided then please have another look at what you have. I apology if I miss lead anyone as I certainly don't wish to contribute incorrect information, Lord knows there is enough out there going around.

WARNING: No assertion is made as to the accuracy of the information listed; rather it is intended as a collection of information. All references and information should be independently verified. Clearly I don't have all the information I need to establish this family. Please don't rely on my transcription, & don't rely on my conclusions. Further research is needed on all of these families?

I have hard copy of 1930 census records. In my copy Margaret isn't listed in the household & wasn't deceased? Caroline is stated as the wife of Aaron Thomas Aslinger ??? I don't understand? She was the wife of Aaron's son Willis? I didn't locate a marriage for Aaron Aslinger & Caroline Wagner Aslinger? Willis Aslinger, Caroline's husband died Jan 3, 1919. All the children born after 1919 belong to someone else? I suspect at least some of them belong to Aaron Aslinger?

Aaron T Aslinger 62 TN
Caroline 43 wife ***? (Didn't locate a marriage for Caroline & Aaron Thomas Aslinger) ???
Isaac 12 son (this is Willis's son) w/Caroline

Joseph 3 son (Aaron & Caroline's son) ?

The James listed above is one & the same as this record. Willis Aslinger died January 03, 1919. Caroline was born a Wagner, so did she marry a Bray later?
