Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been compiling the Genealogy of the Kagy Family for years.The documented history of:
of Several Families Prominent in the Early
History of Fairfield County in Ohio is posted below which documents the character of the Kagy Families of Ohio.


The Shenndoah Valley, of Virginia, was settled largely by Pennsylvania People, both English and German speaking people. They emigrated from Berks, Lancaster and York Counties, Pennsylvania. There were Mennonites, Dunkers and Primitive Baptists among them. From the year 1806 to 1840, in almost every year many families came from that valley to Fairfield County. Samuel and Reverend John Wiseman, Abraham Winters, the Millers, Murphys, Ashbrooks, Beerys, Freeds and hundreds of other families all came from that splendid valley.
Of the many families referred to, none were larger or more highly respected than the Kagys. They were a hardy race, descended from hardy Swiss Ancestors. But few of this large family now reside in Fairfield, for as the children grew to years of maturity, they married and either moved north to Seneca and Hancock Counties or to Marion, Cumberland and Effingham Counties, Illinois. This family produced many men of considerable prominence and ability, farmers, lawyers, doctors, ministers, teachers and merchants.
Honorable John Seitz, of Seneca County, was the son of Lewis Seitz, whose wife was a Kagy.
Rudolph Kagy, a native of Switzerland, came first to Pennsylvania. From there he moved to the valley of Virginia, and he was the founder of the family that came to the county, 1844 and settled in Rushcreek.

Solomon Kagy who was one of 12 children from Samuel Kagy relocated from Ohio to Nebraska.

If any one would have any additional information pertaining to the "Kagy" lineage and the families listed below it would be much appreciated.

The following names that I am documenting as well is:

The Wells Family that was from Dardanelles Arkansas area and California.

The Cleveland and McKenzie Family that was from the Dardanelles Arkansas area.

The Leach & Waddle Family that was from Alabama, Texas, New Mexico, and California.

The Rigsby Family that was from Kentucky then Nebraska.

Any additional information pertaining to any of the families listed above would be welcomed.

Cemetery location correction
I believe the cemetery location for Trudy Pauline (Cross) Rainer is incorrect. I believe she belongs in Barker Cemetery, Newton County, MISSISSIPPI, not my Barker family cemetery in Newton County, MISSOURI.
Thanks for the work you do on Find A Grave.

If you would use the "suggest a correction" tab and include your Find A Grave member number in your request, I would be happy to transfer her to you. You are a closer relative than I, as she is my 3rd cousin, twice removed. (I am related along the Stroud line.)

Best regards from your cousin,
Nancy (Folmar) Reykdal
