We need where they lived,Is Lydia Knepp her maiden name,and some

by Wayne Morgan G2G6 Pilot (916k points)
Lydia Knepp b. 12 Feb 1821 in Northumberland, Or Mifflin Pennsylvania   Daughter of Adam Knepp and Margaret Schoyler. Lydia had daughter: Mary Margaret Wagner,  b. 2 Apr 1846  and only thing I have found is that Mary's father was named Waggoner.  She later married Johnathon Shook in 1866.  He was 19 years younger than her.   Mary Margaret Wagner married my G grandfather,  William Benjamin Franklin Eberhard  in 1867 in Colon, St. Joseph, Michigan.  They had my grandfather Franklin,,(Frank) Eberhard in 1885 in Kinderhook, Branch,  MIchigan.  Frank used to come to our house when I was a boy. He married Harriet Lavinia Stevens in 1911 in Gary, IN..She died in 1933 a few years before I was born.  When I was older  Harriets sister (my Great Aunt Irene Stevens)  gave me a list of our ancestors which I have used to start a Geneology tree.   

Thank you for your help.

I found this - the dates don't match what you want but perhaps the name is Wagler rather than Waggoner.  There is a Lydia Knepp Wagler on WikiTree (Knepp-42) but different dates.  Perhaps they are relatives.

I added some source details on Mary Margaret Wagoner's profile.  If you look at the census data, I don't think Lydia Knepp ever married Wagner.  They are living with M's grandparents in 1850, and with Lydia's siblings including her sister Elizabeth.

In 1860, grandmother Margaret Knepp, Lydia, sister Elizabeth, and Mary are all living together with another young Knepp child.  All ditto's for LN, so the Mary M age 15, might be Mary M (Wagner)

In !910 Aunt Elizabeth Knepp/Krupp is living with Mary and William Wagner.  Seems to be a pattern?

Have not been able to find 1910 Census, or anything on your William Wagner.  Any other info.?


I don't know who William Wagner is?  I added the 1910 and 1920 census data for William Eberhard and wife Mary  to her profile the other day.

I also added William Benjamin Franklin Eberhardts death info, with his parents names to his profile, as well as other census data with his parents.
