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.
