Jacob Waggoner's will refernced noting his brothers and sisters and their children and spouses.

Wythe County, VA Superior Court Chancery Pleas, Book 1, pp35-64 Hance vs Waggoner Heirs Filed Jul 1815 and decided 23 May 1820--- •"The suit was brought against the heirs and excutors of Adam Waggoner dceceased. According to Hance's statement Jacob Waggoner, George Waggoner, Henry Strobaugh and wife Elizabeth (formerly Waggoner), James Day and wife Rebecca (fomerly Waggoner), Jonn W. Howe and Polly his wife (formerly Waggoner), and Joseph Dun and Christina his wife(formerly Waggoner) sold their interests in the lands purchased by Stobaugh and Morgan to William Day who married Peggy Waggoner, daughter of Adam. Day and his wife then sold to Hance . John Pence who married Ann Waggoner sold his interest to James Hoge, who also sold to Hance, giving him a total of eight-thirteenths of the residuary estate.

"After repeated attempts by Hance to obtain his share in the estate from Henry Patton and the widow, who acted as excutors, he finally brought suit. Summons were issued to Jacob, George, and the widow and the children of Daniel Wagoner deceased, William Day and his wife Peggy, all residents of Tazewell County, Virginia. Elizabeth, daughter of Adam Waggoner, was the wife of Henry Stobaugh, and both he and his wife were deceased, leaving four children: Adam, John, Betsy amd Rebecca, the later being married to James McLaughlin. Polly or Mary Ann the daughter of Adam Waggoner had married John W. Howe, and Christina had married Joseph Dun, all of whom were living outside the state of Virginia in places not named. Susannah married John Martin." ®17

"As a result of the lawsuit, which came about thirty years after the death of Adam Waggoner, Henry Hance's claim was not allowed and the case was dismissed. The Waggoner lands were sold to Sebastian Wygle and became part of the Wygle estate south of the present town of Dublin (Montgomery County Deed Books C, pp13, 333; D, p.228)." ®17
