Mary Overly Wagaman

Mary Overly was the daughter of Martin and Mary Polly (Welch) Overly.  She was born in Chilicothe, Ohio in 1802.  She married Jacob Wagaman in Darke Couny, Ohio on October 27, 1825.They had ten children; Susannah(1829), Nancy Ann(1830), John William(1833), Sarah(1834), Catharine(1836), Elizabeth(1838), Phebe(1840), Solomon(1841), Dorothy Ann(1844), Jacob(1846). In the 1830 Federal Census, Jacob,  Mary and Susannah are found in Greenville, Ohio. By the 1840 Census, the Wagaman's are found with 1 son and three daughters in Richland Township in Darke County, Ohio. They remained there in the  1850 Census, and now have 10 children which are listed above.  At the time of the 1860 Census, that have moved to Buck Creek in Hancock County, Indiana and have the three youngest children still at home. They are living near John Wagaman and his wife. Mary and Jacob are back in Ohio in Noble, Auglaize, Ohio by the time of the 1870 Federal Census living near their son, Jacob JrJacob Jr. has only two children listed and no wife.

Mary Polly Overly Wagaman died on December 15, 1872 in Auglaize County, Ohio.  I have not found her grave site as of yet  but I am still looking.  The photo was obviously a small tin type which I have cleaned up as best I can. I found it on Ancestry.com in a Wagaman Family Tree.  It is stated that it is of Jacob and Mary Wagaman. Thanks for publishing the photo. 

Rest in Peace,

Jan Smith
