MR. AND MRS. JOHANN WAGNER
Mr. and Mrs. Johann Wagner, having raised a family of 11, found that chances for expanding their operations in the homeland were far too limited for the size of the family, which caused them to decide to go to America where land could be had just for living on it and tilling it. Johann Wagner was born in the village of Borodeno in Besserabia in South Russia on January 1, 1839. In 1860 he was married to Katherina Heier who was born October 20, 1839. To this union 11 children were born: Katherina, John I., Peter, Elizabeth, Michael, Christine, Gottfried, George, Hanna, Julius and one son who died very young.
Before coming to America the following children married and established homes of their own: Katherina (Mrs. Martin Kubier); John I. Wagner was married to Christine Riley; Elizabeth to Gottfried Heine; Peter and Michael also were married previous to coming to America. In the spring of 1894 Johann Wagner and his family, together with some of his married children and their families, started for America. Only two daughters and their families stayed behind, Katherina (Mrs. Martin Kubier) and Christine (Mrs. Loeffelbein). The Kubier family came to America a few years later, but Christina never came.
The families were headed for Bowdle, South Dakota where a distant relative lived who had encouraged Johann Wagner to come. The family became somewhat discouraged when they came through Chicago a few days after the violent Pullman strike, but when the sons got further west and saw the fine lands they were satisfied there was no mistake. The family arrived in Bowdle about the 3rd or 4th of May, 1894, and were brought to the Adam Wagner farm northwest of Bowdle, where the women and children stayed a few days while the men located land to file upon, and to build a temporary home.
Johann Wagner and two sons, John I. and Gottfried, located land two miles north of Selby, Mr. Wagner buying a relinquishment as did his son, John I.
Gottfried filed on a tree claim. The families built a 12 room sod house, and a sod barn as temporary housing on the NE 1/4 of 28-124-76. Peter and
Mike went further north to locate, Peter to Eureka, and Mike to Ashley, North Dakota.
Peter did not like the northern climate so went to Oklahoma where he permanently located.
Mike located on land northeast of Ashley.
One daughter, Elizabeth and her husband were encouraged by friends to join them in going to Salem, North Dakota where they located homesteads.
When proper details were arranged the family started to put in a crop. There were a few acres broken on Johann's and John's quarters, and beside that they were able to rent 60 acres from a neighbor. The father and sons had conducted a large work shop in their homeland so were able to build some of their implements, but they bought two plows and wagons and one team of horses, one team of oxen and three cows. While bringing the oxen and cows from Bowdle, Gottfried became lost so when he finally saw a farm he stopped to inquire where he was, and found he had taken the wrong fork in the road and had wandered too far north.
Their first crop was no bumper crop but was fair and the proceeds were sufficient to buy a few more necessities. Wheat sold for about 60 to 80 cents a bushel.
In the spring of 1895 Johann Wagner started to make adobe brick for a house to be built on his quarter, the southeast of 21-124-76. The bricks were made by mixing clay and straw to a consistency that it stuck. The mud was pressed into forms and stacked in the sun for drying and aging before building. The family was fortunate in their brick making and put out enough to also build a barn. Lumber for the roof was bought in Bowdle. The roof of the barn was made from timbers from the Missouri river, and covered with sod until finances were sufficient to put a wooden roof on in 1897.
Mr. Wagner also built a house on his NW 1/4 of 28-124-76 and moved his family over and set up farming, also to build up a very nice farm.
Gottfried, George, Hanna and Julius lived with their parents several years.
The sod house that was hurriedly built served as a small shanty for Gottfried, and when he built an adobe brick house and barn in 1897 on his NE 1/4 of 28-124-76, the sod house served as a temporary residence for many immigrants. The Kubier family were the first to use the sod house as a temporary home and were followed by the Wells family and Gottfried Heier family, brothers of Mrs. Johann Wagner, and several others. The Gottfried
Heier family and the Kubier family located homesteads in the Akaska area.
In 1898 the crops were good but an early winter set in which made choring a very difficult problem at times. Haystacks were completely covered and had to be shoveled out of the snow. The supplies had to be hauled from Bowdle which was a big day's journey. Snow along sleigh roads was 4 to 5 feet high, and only room for one sled. You could not pass another only in certain places. Gottfried tells of one instance when he was bringing home some coal. He met a sleigh loaded with grain sacks. The two men did not know what to do for a minute but it was agreed to unload the wheat sacks and tip the sled off the road and let the load of coal pass, and then reload the wheat. Both went their way again not to meet for many years, neither having inquired as to the others name, but in 1916 they met on the street in Selby and recognized each other and took time to get acquainted.
MR. AND MRS. JOHANN WAGNER
In 1899 when the railroad was being extended west, the Wagner boys got work on the grading gangs with their horses which enabled them to earn a little extra money. When Selby started in 1900 the Wagner's would walk two miles to work in Selby, helping folks who had moved homes from Bangor to get settled.
Gottfried was married to Elizabeth Himrich on October 31, 1901. To this union two children were born, Emil and Olga Wagner.
George Wagner started to work out as a hired hand before he became of age, and started to work as helper in a lumber yard in Bowdle and Eureka and Selby. He was also employed by Gross of Bowdle for a time. He was married to Elizabeth Ketterling of Bowdle, to which union three sons were born. George is now living in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Julius Wagner, who came to America as a lad, enjoyed attending the neighboring country school a mile and a half east of his father's farm. He in turn would teach Gottfried, who took care of the farm. When Julius became of age he wanted a homestead and found land southwest of Akaska as did his sister Hanna, Julius locating half a mile east of the Kubier farm.
They homesteaded in about 1903. In 1908 Julius was married to Lydia Himrich, and to this union four children were born: Esther, Reinhold, Clara and Susie who all attended the Selby schools at one time. Julius moved a house in to Selby and carried mail on a rural route for a number of years, often going out in quite stormy weather to get the mail through. He took quite sick in the flu epidemic which caused the collapse of a lung and therefore could not do hard work any more. He took on a Ward company medical route in Edmunds county. He was instantly killed while crossing the railroad tracks in Selby when his car was hit by a fast train. Mrs. Lydia
Wagner lives in Selby.
Johann Wagner died in 1906 and was laid to rest in a community cemetery two miles east of his home. Mrs. Wagner and her daughter carried on farming a year, renting out some land. Hanna was married in 1907 to Matt Ellwein of Roscoe, South Dakota, after which Mrs. Johann Wagner sold the personal property and went to live with her sons. She spent most of the time with Gottfried across the road from her home. She stayed with Gottfried until his health forced him to discontinue farming. Gottfried purchased a small home in Selby but agreed to again take his mother when his new home was finished which would have modern conveniences and living quarters for her.
She died on January 2, 1912, and was laid to rest beside her husband.
In settling the Johann Wagner estate, Gottfried purchased his father's homestead to go with his farm across the road, which he still owns. Although living a retired life in Selby, he still likes to spend many days on the farm.
John I. Wagner continued to live on his farm until 1926 when he decided to retire, and moved a house into Java where he and his wife died and were buried in the Java cemetery, leaving four children: Emma (Mrs. Alex Huber) of Selby; Christine (Mrs. John Schauer) of Selby; Mary (Mrs. Ed Schock) of Aberdeen, and Richard of Selby.
Of the Wagner boys who came to this country with their father in 1894. only Michael of Ellendale, North Dakota, Gottfried of Selby; and George of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and one daughter, Hanna (Mrs. Ellwein) are still living. They have all endured pioneer hardships but have also enjoyed the blessings of good crops and prosperity, and good clean living. The Wagners' have often expressed gratitude to their father and mother for bringing them to this country, and letting them enjoy the freedom of a good government.
THE COLMAN WAGNER FAMILY
Colman Wagner was born in Austria-Hungary, January 18, 1868. He came to America with his parents, Michael and Theresa Wagner, and settled on a farm in Walworth county, 4 miles southwest of Selby, in 1888.
Christine Baer was born in Crimea, South Russia, September 2, 1871. She came to America with her parents, Bernhart and Katherine Baer, and settled on a farm in Walworth county, 22 miles southeast of Selby, in 1889.
Colman Wagner and Christine Baer were married February 1, 1893, and started farming on his homestead one mile south of his father's homestead. Here on this homestead their five children, Colman, Ernestine, Gazella, Wilhelmina and Arnold, were born.
The Baer church which was located about ten miles north of Hoven was started and built by Mrs. Wagner's parents and uncles.
In 1897 Colman Wagner entered into partnership with H. C. Baer in the implement and grain business in Bowdle. He went to Bowdle and back to the farm by bicycle until 1899 when he moved the family to Bowdle and back to the farm again in the same year. The Baer and Wagner partnership started an implement and grain business in Selby which Mr. Wagner managed along with his farming operations. In 1902 he moved with his family to Selby to continue in the business activities. The Baer and Wagner partnership continued in the implement and grain business until 1909 when the implement business was sold to Charles Schott and the Baer and Wagner partnership dissolved. Colman Wagner retained the grain elevator which business he continued until the elevator was set on fire by a train and burned down in 1923.
THE COLMAN WAGNER FAMILY
Mrs. Wagner, Mr. Wagner, Colman, Ernestine, Gazella, Arnold
(on lap). Wilhelmina.
Mr. Wagner was elected to the Selby city council in 1911 and served as councilman for 28 years until he died November 18, 1939. Mr. Wagner loved music and learned to play the violin and cornet without an instructor. He played with the Bangor and Selby bands for 46 years and always took an active part and interest in all band activities. He was considered as one of the best cornetists in this part of the country.
During the early years on the farm when Mr. Wagner was in business Mrs. Wagner often did most of the farm work, sometimes with hired men but more often alone. She did the chores, mowed and raked hay and took care of her small children.
Mrs. Wagner is the only one of the family still living at Selby at this time. The family still own the homestead farm and their home in Selby and Mrs. Wagner would rather live there than any other place.
The children, all living, are: Colman H. Wagner, county agent, Clark, South Dakota; Ernestine Miller and Gazella McIntyre of Idaho Falls, Idaho; Wilhelmina Allerdings of Los Angeles, California; and Dr. J. Arnold Wagner, a dentist at Seattle, Washington.

<< I have a couple corrections and additions to the Wagner webpage.
The source S-80 should be Norma Hettich, not Norma Hittich.
The daughter of John and Christina Wagner was Emma Wagner Huber, not Gertrude Emma Wagner Huber. (My mother, Norma Huber Hettich, was Emma Huber's daughter and does not recall ever having heard or seen where her mother's name was Gertrude. Emma may have had a sister named Gertrude that died as a child. My mother couldn't really remember.)
Daughters of Emma Wagner Huber were Palma Huber Klebel, Norma Huber Hettich, and Dolores Huber Hiatt.
I enjoy looking at your webpage.

I have come across your family tree doing a search on google. I have an ancestor Johan George Zacharias Wagner b 1776 (my 2nd great-grandfather) who I suspect might have been the brother of George Adam born 1760. Could you please let me know if he appears on your list or if you have any record?
Your help is much appreciated.
