Looking for info about the parents or siblings of Anna Elizabeth Waggoner who married Lewis Bonnett abt 1770 in VA or WV. Her father is mentioned in one source as Wilhelm Waggoner, who was killed by Indians. Also mentioned is a brother, John Waggoner, whose wife and children were killed by Indians. Any help appreciated.

Rick,
Thanks for the response. I pretty much have the same info as you do about the Waggoner/Bonnett connection. I'm just trying to get a little further back on Wilhelm and Anna Elizabeth.
From the couple sources I've found, the story of Peter Bonnett and his Inidan wife is sad. He had married her, had two children by her, and then was imprisoned by his family and brain-washed into ignoring them all and marrying the Hardman widow (I show her name as Catherine). I read your messages on Susannah Waggoner, too. You're right, though, it makes good reading. I'm finding a lot of my ancestors had run-ins with the Indians - some friendly, some not so. Happy hunting. Barb

Rick,
The Anna Elizabeth Waggoner I'm looking for info about is the great-aunt of the one you mentioned. Wilhelm Waggoner was married twice. First to Anna Elizabeth Wagner, with whom he had three children: Mary-killed by a would-be rescuer during Indian raid; John Peter-captured by Indians, survived and settled in Philadelphia; Anna Elizabeth, md Lewis Bonnett, son of Jean Jacques Bonnett.
Wilhelm Waggoner's second wife was Agnesa (?), with whom he had two children: John, who married Margaret Bonnett (dtr of Lewis Bonnett's brother, Samuel)and Barbara, who married John Lantz. I'm descended from Lewis and Anna Elizabeth through their daughter, Barbara Bonnett, who married John Rodefer abt 1800 and lived in WV.
