John Waggoner, 1751-1842, Margaret (Bonnett) Waggoner: Ancestors, Families, and Descendants
John (Johannes) Waggoner (1751-1842) was born in White Marsh, Pennsylvania to Wilhelm and Agnesa Waggoner. In 1778 he married Margaret (Peggy) Bonnett. They both descended from early German settlers of Virginia and Pennsylvania. John and Margaret became the parents of seven children. They settled near what later became Wheeling, West Virginia. In 1792 Indians attacked the Waggoner cabin and kidnapped and eventually killed Margaret and four children. Three of the children, Elizabeth (1779-1854), Mary (1780-1871), and Peter (1787-1879), were spared and lived among the Indians. The girls were able to return to their father in 1795. However, Peter was with the Indians for twenty years. He married an Indian woman and fathered two girls before he was talked into returning to his father. Descendants of Peter and his sister, Elizabeth Waggoner Hardman, live in the United States.
