Capt. George CHRISMAN
Elizabeth HAGLER
Husband:  George CHRISMAN
Birth:  1765, Dutch Buffalo Ck., Mecklenburg [now Cabarrus] Co., NC not VA
Death:  1 Sep 1850, Geneva, Scott Co., IL
Disposition:  buried Campbell Cemetery, Geneva, Scott Co., IL
Military Service:  War of 1812:  Cpl.
Father:  Michael CHRISMAN, of Worms [Germany] and Mecklenburg [now Cabarrus] Co., NC 
Mother:  Elizabeth __?__

George is definitely not the son of Isaac CHRISMAN & Jane SCOTT as said by many secondary sources.  There is no evidence, whatsoever, for such a connection.  Isaac CHRISMAN was born and died in Virginia (which has led to many to assert that George was born in VA).  George CHRISMAN was born in and lived in Mecklenburg [now Cabarrus] Co., NC.  He had bought his land there from his brother, Michael CHRISMAN, Jr., who (as eldest son) had inherited the whole from their (intestate) father, Michael CHRISMAN, Sr.  Their father had been granted the land in 1760, so he was living there when Michael, Jr., and George were born (in 1763 and 1765, respectively). 

Marriage:  bef. 1789, presumably Mecklenburg [now Cabarrus] Co., NC
Wife:  Elizabeth HAGLER
Birth said to be:  1773 or 1776/7, Garmany, Newberry Co., SC
Death:  7 Sep 1848, Geneva, Scott Co., IL
Father possibly:  Jacob HAGLER
Mother possibly:  Ms. BRYANT

A birthdate of 1776/7 is much too late if Elizabeth is having a son in January of 1789; the 1773 date is at least plausible.  Some sources say she was born in "Germany," but that appears to be a mis-interpretation of "Garmany."  However, the Garmany location is totally "off the wall."  I have, so far, found no record of any HAGLER in Newberry Co. (96-Dist.) that early.  In fact, I wonder if "Garmany" isn't a mis-interpretation of "Germany."  I'd much sooner believe she (or her parents) had been born in Germany. 

Elizabeth is definitely not the daughter of Jacob HAGLER & Frances ROBINS as said by many secondary sources, if for no other reason than that  Jacob and Frances were not married until 1786 and Elizabeth (HAGLER) CHRISMAN had her first child known child in 1789. 

There were basically two groups of HAGLERS pre-1800 in the Carolinas, one centered in Wilkes Co., NC -- descendants of Swiss immigrant, Johannes HAEGLER (a.k.a., John HAGLER) and the other centered around Mecklenburg Co., NC, and the adjacent Craven Dist. of SC. 

The HAGLER genealogy, as available online (e.g., the LDS Ancestral File and IGI, WorldConnect, etc.), is a total mess.  I wouldn't trust any part of it that wasn't securely documented.

John didn't marry until 1811, so he should still be at home.
