According to information I received from family members over the years William Abraham Stagge was born August 15, 1850 in Germany. Supposedly, he illegally entered the United States through Canada when he was around 28 years old. He married Elizabeth Birt on December 24, 1887 (he was around 37 years old and she was 15 years old) in Willard, Box Elder, Utah. Elizabeth died 25 July 1900 in Ogden, Weber, Utah, when she was around 28 years old. They had 5 children when she died, the youngest David Vivian or Vernon Stagge, born 19 October 1896, aged 3; Louis Abraham Stagge, born 13 November 1894, age 5; Ernest James Stagge, born 17 September 1891, age 8; Millie Augusta Stagge, born 27 March 1890, age 10; and the oldest William John Frederick Stagge born 17 September 1888, aged 11. From what I have heard the children went to live with Elizabeth's mother, Catherine Norris Birt. William Abraham became a quartz miner and lived with his business partner in Peterson, Morgan, Utah (according to the 1900 Census).

Some members of the family felt that William Abraham changed his name when he came into the country illegally. Because the spelling STAGGE was pronounced Stagg-ee, some of the children changed the spelling of their name to STAGGIE and some did not. It is unclear if William Abraham changed his actual last name upon coming to the United States or just the pronunciation.

I found a book entitled "The Stagge Name in History" by ancestry.com, offered by amazon.com and published by: The Generations Network, Inc., 360 West 4800 North, Provo, Utah 84604. Nothing specific about our ancestors, but still interesting., For more information or to order a book about the family name of your choice, please visit the following web site at: http://www.ournameinhistory.com/

William is my GGG Grandfather. The story that has been told in our family is that you was a stow away on the ship coming to America. Also after the death of Elisabeth William John Fredrick Staggie and Ernest stayed with William and Millie and Louis went to live with John Knowles family in east South Weber. Mrs. Knowles brought Elisabeth to America with her. William then married Sally Davis around 1899 and in 1900 brought Millie and Louis back home. This information comes from a Journal my GG Grandfather William John Fredrick Staggie wrote. on WILLIAM ABRAHAM STAGGE 1850-1926
