Honus Wagner (1874 – 1955)


Today’s update is Honus Wagner, major league baseball player from 1897 to 1917 (Pittsburgh Pirates).   Apparently, Honus was a nickname for Johannes.  Why not simply John?   Anyway,  the pedigree to the projected MRCA, Philip Ebelin (1562-1653) is a rather bumpy one and will require the breaking down of a number of brick walls.   Partially, this includes the assertion of the identity of my 3rd great grandmother as being Mary Miller (1815-1867).   I have never been able to confirm anything more than her first name.  So, as a secondary use of this app, it might also be used as a wrecking ball for some of the stubborn brick walls — of course, after a great deal of added research and documentation.
