Mysterious Ludwick Havener (Heavner) actually Waggoner ?- 18 May 1762

Mysterious Ludwick Havener (Heavner) actually Waggoner ?- 18 May 1762

In a widely cited entry from Chalkley's Chronicles, a group of men receiving certificates of naturalizations includes a mysterious Ludwick Havener - who does not appear in any probate or land records - or, even other court records:

"Following received certificates for naturalization: Henry Stone, Sebastian Hover, Gabriel Kyle, Henry Peninger, Woolrick Coonrod, Mack Swadley, John Dunkle, Michael Mallow, Michael Props, George Hammer, Nicholas Havenor, Henry Pickle, Ludwick Havener, Frederick Easter." (Vol I, pg. 97)

Does anyone have additional information or evidence proving the existence of a Ludwick Havenor (Heavner, Heavener, Haffner, etc) on the South Fork or South Branch in this time frame?

Alternately, is it possible (maybe likely) that this was Ludwick Waggoner (Wagner, Wagoner)? Ludwick (aka Lewis) Waggoner makes more sense in that he was active with this particular group of men in the various legal and land matters in this time frame. Does anyone know if there is another date regarding the naturalization of Ludwick Waggoner? (Ludwick's full name was Georg Ludwick Wagner but his name was standardized to Lewis Waggoner).

Chalkley was notorious for misreading names. The originals of the Augusta County court records are available to rent from the FHL. Good luck.
