About Wager's County History
Our County and Its People was Daniel E. Wager's "last important literary undertaking," but because he died before it was published, "Family Sketches," the third section of the book, had to be compiled by "other hands than his." The family sketches section was "considered of the greatest value" by those who carried on his work. And, it is. Over one hundred years later, the biographies included in Wager's history are a valuable resource for genealogical researchers looking for ancestors in Oneida County, New York.

About the Wager Bio Project
Wager's biographies are presented here through the efforts of four volunteers--Cyndy, Kathy, Linda, and Renee.
