"AGER--At the residence, 1947 Hawthorne ave., Feb. 26, 1919, Eliza A. Ager, aged 71 years, 4 months, beloved wife of Wilson Ager. Friends invited to attend the funeral services, which will be held at the above residence at 10:30 A. M. today (Friday), Feb, 28, 1919. Interment Mt. Scott cemetery."
Harold, the son of Wilson and Eliza Ager, had a middle name of Weiler. This middle name was on Harold's WWI and WWII Draft Registration cards. Eliza Ann's maiden name was Weiler. In 1850, in Congress Township, Wayne County, Ohio, one year old Eliza A. Weiler is listed with her father. He is Adam Weiler, age 30, and listed here as born in Pennsylvania, but all other cemsus records shows him born in Ohio. There isn't a mother listed for Eliza. In 1860, Harriet Weiler, age 28, is listed in the household. Although her relationship to Adam is not listed, she is probably his wife, and step-mother to Eliza.
Find A Grave member Peggy babbs (#46603677), found information in a marriage record book that showed Adam Weiler married a Mary Ann Troutman on 14 October 1847. Since Eliza Ann was born about a year later, and there isn't any famale in Adam's household, other than Eliza, in 1850, I will assume Mary Ann Troutman probably Adam Weiler's first wife, and mother to Eliza Ann.
Peggy's book also showed a marriage between Wilson W. Agar and Eliza Weiler on 15 November 1866.
The newspaper information regarding the deaths of Eliza and her husband, Wilson, didn't list any of their children. But the funeral notice for their son, Charles Herbert Ager, who died in Portland, Oregon, 13 November 1862, listed his siblings as Jessie Broms, Maude Shaver, Walter and Raymond Ager.
Other children found listed in census records were Agusta [also called Gertrude and Gerty], William [believed to also be known as Adam], Clyde, and Mildred. In the 1875 State Census for Little Rock, Nobles County, Minnesota, there were two children, Herbert age 9, and Hubert age 2, both born in Ohio. In the 1880 census for Nobles County Minnesota, only listed one son named Herbert, age 7, born in Illinois. He is listed again in 1895 in Noble County, Minnesota, as Herbert, age 22 born in Illinois. One of the two boys listed in 1875, Herbert and Hubert, died before 1880. In the 1900 census for Nobles County, Minnesota, showed Eliza had given birth to 11 children, but only 10 children were still living.
