Wagner Anton Legge was born in April 1744 in Loewn, Belgium, about 25 km or 16 miles east of Brussels. Loewen is home to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the largest and oldest university of the Low Countries and the oldest Catholic university still in existence today. Loewen is about 353 km or 219 miles from Warburg, Germany where Wagner moved in 1770. There he married Anna Marie Todt/Taud on September 26, 1770.

Wagner had 2 children with Anna Marie. Joan Heinrich Anton Legge, 1770-1772 and Joann Christoph Legge, (1775-) Anna Marie died in 1778.

In 1786, he married Maria Margarthe Werner. Maria was born October 13, 1747 in Edenkoben, Germany. She died in 1814. Together they had 7 children.

Wagner worked as a day laborer and as a Wagonmeister. A Wagonmeister is also known as a Wheelwright. And a wheelwright is a person who builds or repairs wooden wheels. The word is the combination of "wheel" and the archaic word "wright", which comes from the Old English word "wryhta", meaning a worker or maker.

Since Wagner was born in Loewen, Belgium it's understandable that he would be of the Catholic faith since Loewen is the home of the oldest Catholic University in the world.

Wagner died on April 1, 1814 and is buried in Warburg, Neustadt, Germany.
