Samuel WAGONER, was exempted from pardon by Governor Tryon on 31 May 1771 following an earlier meeting on 7 March 1771 at a Regulator meeting with Rowan county officials.

What does "exempted from pardon" mean? What happened to Samuel? Can someone point me to a resource? Is anyone researching this WAGONER? Is he related to Mountain City, TN WAGNER family in the 1840s-50s that married into my Joel BOWMAN ancestor? Was he a relative of Henry WAGONER in NC in very early 1800s in Wilkes Co.? If so, did they take opposite sides during the War?

Sure do appreciate the knowledge and generosity shared here.

I am researching Samuel Waggoner the Regulator too. Did you ever find out what happened to him? My relatives are also Samuel and William Waggoenr. William relocated with his family to Union County Tennessee. My great grandfather, Jacob Waggoner, was William's grandson. Anyway any information you have on Samuel would be greatly appreciated. I know this post is very old but hopefully someone will have some more information on Samuel the Regulator. Thank!!

Is there any known connection between this Waggoner family and George Waggoner, Revolutionary Patriot A 117158 NSDAR, who married Elizabeth and died in Warren County, GA, prior to Jan 10, 1808. His daughter Mary Wilson Waggoner was born in SC in 1768 and married John Shaw, also a Patriot in Warren County, GA in 1783.

I have been researching this line for a long time and know quite a bit, and have several original records. Samuel shows up in court as a jurior many times after the battle so he must not have had to run away or be hanged. Maybe the whole thing blew over. Now to a more somber topic that I am recently pursuing. I have been told by the author Brent Holcomb and several accredited researchers that William who died before Samuel would not be Samuel's son. Samuel would never nor be Allowed to put a deceased son in his will.

I am now in the process of trying to research where our Wm,sr came from.
