I am not sure of James Hagerman's wifes surname . But sure that John Hagerman was married to Mary Atherton. If i come across any thing I will let you know.
There was a Cornelius Hagerman, Mary Hagerman, John Hagerman and Capt. John Hagerman. You can find this information in a book called : Some Loyalist and others by Isabel Louis Hill. I think a library in your area can get it on lone if they do not have it or it can be bought sometines on Ebay.
Mary Atherton, her parents were Benjamin Atherton and ?, and she was bonr in New Brunswick in a house that is described in the Studholme report in 1783. In Sunbury Township which is where my family ancesters lived (the Street family). It is described as a good framed house and on about 30 acres of land that had been cleared by the French. In 1826 when Benjamin Atherton died his property in the parish of St. Marys he had 10 acres of intervale with 15 acres of upland and other property with buildings and was advertised for sale. His widow lived latterly with her daughter Mary Hagerman (atherton) The death notice said: died at Queensbury, York Co, N.B. on the 28th of June. Mrs Abigil Atherton wife of the late Benjamin Atherton in the 97th year of her age , leaving a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. This was in the Morning News , Saint John , N.B. on July 5, 1852
I also found out that Benjamin Atherton was Clerk of the Peace. Also The firm of Hazen Simonds & White in 1767 placed Benjamin as manager of a truck house at St. Annes point to complete with John Anderson at the mouth of the Nashwaak, Gov. Carleton later bought Athertons land as part of the Goverment House property. this was called Lot 4 excepted a reserve for the Indian burial ground. Lieut. Benjamin Atherton assisted in the deportation of the Acadians. Also in another book i found this or possible he had a son with the same name that was misspelled: Benjamin Alterton that was a Coroner in York Co,N.B. ( ?
I hope some of this helps all that are researching this family.
your very welcome
