Her father has not been found, although there is record of extensive Wager family from Germany in the Troy, Brunswick area of New York State and she is no doubt related to this family. Searches through several of the genealogies of this Wagar Family microfilmed by the LDS FHL have not revealed her. The generations in those genealogies are preceeding her birthdate.

Two of the children of Wesley Mott stated that it was said she was of that group of German people in America called "Pennsylvania Dutch." It is known that she could speak German; that German was spoken in her home, and that there was among her belongings a German prayerbook. It is known that she was religious and fond of music, which she said was "good for the soul." Her interest in music, her possession of a voice of unusual strength and carrying power carried over to her daughter Martha.
