I am part of a Wygant branch that came from Columbus, OH around 1900 to Houston, TX.
I am looking for info on James Wygant(b.1837 in NJ),wife Mary M.(b.1837 in NJ), married 1870, had 6 kids: Libbie (b. 1870), Mattie (b. 1871) Frederick (b. 1876), William (b.1878), Charles (b. 1885), Minnie (b. 1887).
I am descendant of Charles Wygant.

WYGANT, James 1764 - 1846 in Meadville PA cemetery

Surnames: Wygant, Miller
Some years ago my husband's father pointed out a lonely tombstone along the old Franklin Pike Road outside of Meadville, PA in Crawford County. His grandmother was Rosa Ann Wygant Miller who died on Feb. 29, 1911.
The stone is not the original, so it's very readable. It says:
James Wygant, 1764-1846,
PVT. COL. I. SHREVES 2ND REGT. N.J.
CAPT. WM. HELMS CO., REV. WAR
There is also a flag in a REV WAR holder.
Leaning against the newer stone is an old, hard-to-read one that I think says:
ELIZA Wygant, died ___26, 1864, age 9 yrs, 1 mo 10 days.

Hello,
I hope I can give you some helpful information.
My great-grandfather was Charles Wygant. He lived in Oil City, PA. I also know of a James Wygant who was the first
Wygant that came to America in 1764 from Germany. He came to American with his parents and his twin brother John.

If any of this sounds familiar to you please e-mail me.
It sounds like there may be a connection.
Take Care

Hi, Have you found the parents of James Wygant 1837?

Do you have documentation for NJ ? Any way James could be from NY ?

Is the James Wygant, Harrison Tp. Licking Co. Ohio connected to your line, Atlases pg. 141.

Is the John C. Wygant 1870 and 1880 census same area, wife Lucy, connected to you ?

this, i know: John Wygant married Lucy A. (Mott) and they lived in Licking, OH and in NY their daughter Hanna Ann (24JAN1857-21MAR1938) is my gr-gr-gr-grandma.
I found this. but it only goes as far back as John. He had a son named Charles, who was probably born 1852, judging by this info, but his dad, 1830 maybe? his uncle, john's brother?

John was born in 1830 according to the censuses I found, and his wife was Lucy (Mott). I'm thinking this original James guy was John's father. Here's the census info I found. If you copy and paste it into a Word doc, the tabs should line up better.

I think the edward everyone is so concerned with is John's son, born 1863.
