Dear Ben,

From the information you have given below, it appears that  you have seen or already have the information contained in the family history found in the Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois, pp. 630 – 633. This appears to be the only source readily available on this family. I had hoped to find a record of Magdalene’s burial but either it has been lost or she was not buried in the county even though she died there.


I have checked all the resources I have and have found nothing to add to the information you may already have. However, you may want to check the nearby counties for Magdalene’s burial. Her son’s were buried in the Catholic Cemetery, if you can find a source for the Catholic records of that period of time, you may be able to get additional information on her. The Catholic Priests were often very meticulous in keeping records on people in their parishes.

I am looking for information on the Wagoner/Wagner family, originally from Coshocton County, Ohio, who lived in Brown County, Illinois. I am especially trying to find my ancestor, Magdaline Riling, who married a Wagner. She apparently moved to Brown County sometime after 1837, and died there in about 1862. Her sons are listed below:


Wagoner, Gregory MStwp217 

Wagoner, Valentine M1818



Any information you may have on Magdaline (Riling) Wagner would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you for your time.
