Descendants of William Brown Hageman
and his wives, sisters Althea Quick Stryker and Magdalena Voorhees Stryker

William Brown Hageman

Down in that county of brush and muddy roads, Fulton County, Illinois...Somehow an epidemic of western fever broke out in old Fulton in 1866 and...the whole Hageman family took it, and they landed in the wilderness of Seward County in the spring in time to see the flowers bloom.

Dear Cousins, Fellow Genealogists, and Friends,

We welcome you to this memorial website in honor of William Brown HAGEMAN and his two wives, sisters Aletta "Althea" Quick Stryker and Magdalena Voorhees Stryker. Born and raised in Somerset County, New Jersey in the early 1800's, they ventured west with the Dutch-American migrations, first in 1839 to Fulton County, Illinois where Althea died in 1850, and then in 1866 in a covered wagon to Seward County, Nebraska, where they finally settled for good on rich farmland near the Blue River. Many of their descendants reside in Nebraska to this day, while hundreds of others have followed their inherited pioneer spirit to the far corners of the U.S. and the world.

We invite you to embark with us upon this engaging adventure. We are striving to account for and reach out to as many of our fellow descendants as possible. We share an appreciation of our rich American history and a deep sense of gratitude for the hard work, sacrifice, and vision of all those who came before us and made our prosperity, our very existence, possible.

This report is a compilation of the research, record-keeping, and personal memories of numerous family members and others. We eagerly look forward to reuniting with all our long-lost Hageman cousins. We hope to progressively enrich this memorial site with contributions of facts, photographs, and recollections from all of you.

--Best wishes always, their great-great grandchildren.

P.S. Please sign our Guestbook before you leave!
