    Notes 
    • George Waggoner was a Millwright in Census of 1840, 1850, 1860, and 1880. He bought 80 acres in 1847 from Isaac Haller, the original settler. Erected a sawmill and gristmill near present village of Windom, IN. Halbert's Bluff, Martin co, IN.

      In the 1840 census Geo Waggoner is living in Martin Co., Indiana (no township listed) with 2 male children under 5, and 1 child at 5 (Thomas J). He is 20-30 as is his wife. There must have been another male child born between Thomas J. and William or Sarah who died before the 1850 census.

      1850 Federal Census, taken on June 1, 1850 in the Township of Rutherford, in the County of Martin, Indiana finds George and Mary with children Thomas, William, Sarah, and baby Elizabeth.

      1860 census finds George Waggoner living in Lost River with 7 children and 2 laborers, Harrisson Tredway and Abraham Watson. Could this Harrisson be Sarah's future husband, Thomas H. Tredway? Youngest child in the family is only 1/12 years old--or one month. I'm not sure why Mrs. Waggoner wasn't listed but perhaps she died during childbirth. Thomas was living next door with his wife Ann, baby George, and possible sister-in-law. The one-month old baby John was from George's second wife, Mary. The baby would die shortly after the census was taken in the same year. George would remarry quickly. Abraham Watson may possibly be the brother of Rebecca Watson, George's first wife.

      The 1870 census is messed up as they put his name reversed--Wagoer George. All of the children's surnames are George too. He is living in Lost River, Martin Co., with new and third wife Kizziah. Two children I don't recognize are listed--Theodore and Francis--probably sons from Kizziah's first husband. Sarah from the 1st wife is living next door with her husband Thomas H. Tredway. The new wife's children are Rachel, Kisiah, and Sorisa (incorrectly transcribed as Lorisa).

      Census of 1880, Lost River twp, Martin Co, IN. The census lists his father as being born in Germany and his mother in Maryland. Only Elzora was living with George and Kizziah. They had lost Daughters Kizziah, Mary Elizabeth, and Emma before 1880. Sarah was a neighbor and Thomas J. lived on the other side.

    I'm not sure if this is George Waggoner or not, but the grave is right beside his last wife, Kesiah, and the top name looks like George (although quite worn).
