Notes that may have a bearing on the above family: Note 1: Martin Veagle on “Ship Young William for Virginia,” 1679. Note 2: Hans Georg Nogelle on “Ship William and Sarah,” September 21, 1727. Note 3: Among the 30,000 names by Rupp of early emigrants was the name of Bastian Nogle on August 26, 1741 on the ship Anderson. Note 4. August 1753, Augusta County, (Virginia?), among the court notes “John Nigley gone to Carolina,” Note 5: On August 18, 1772 in Augusta County, Virginia, administrators were appointed for the estate of Sebastian Neigley. Note 6: George Naigeley lived in Pendleton County, Virginia, above Harpers Gap on the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River. In 1795 180 acres of land was issued. They moved to Ohio in 1811. Query: Was Hans Georg Nogelle the father of PAULSER NEIGELEY and Sebastian Neigley? JOHN NEIGLEY came to California in the “Covered wagon train in 1849.” The writer is descended from JOHN NAGELY (NEIGELEY) and ELIZABETH GREGG (both above mentioned). The said ELIZABETH NAGELY had a brother named George Gregg who moved to Waynesville, Illinois. There were many persons by the name of RUSH who lived in Culpeper County, Virginia and also there were many by that name in North Carolina. The GREGG family lived in that part of Augusta County, Virginia that later became Pendleton County, Virginia. Any data on the families named NAGELY, (NEIGELEY), RUSH and GREGG will be appreciated. They were all in Augusta County (later subdivided to form Pendleton), Virginia. Regarding the various spellings of the names NAGELY, I will say that my grandfather spelled the name NAGELY; his brother spelled it NEGELY, and his uncle spelled it NAGELY. It is my belief that the family originally came from Switzerland and many living around Zurich, Switzerland spell their names NAGELL. Address: MRS.
