Kagy Relationship In American

According to family recollections1, this is not her first burial spot. She was buried on the old family farm but when the farm was sold, the family graves were left in disrepair and eventually moved to the Mennonite Church Cemetery.

A history book of the Kagys in America2 indicates she was born in Shenandoah County, Virginia, and was married to John Blosser in 1807, who was born 5 Jun 1780, in Page County, Virginia. They had 12 children, altho it looks like only 11 were listed in the book.

It’s been a couple years since I’ve worked on this line, but in checking Ancestry, there is no additional information showing up for her.

Family Search does have a death record for her son, Noah, who died in 1912 at age 91. It lists her and John Blosser as his parents. Their wiki says few Virginia births were recorded by civil authorities before 1853, which is a far piece from when she was born!

Hoping someone out there has found Church or Bible records, or perhaps personal papers I’ve been unable to locate. In the meantime, will have to pursue information other than online sources.
