Charles Hagler
Son of John and Mary Love Hagler,
and Grandson of James Love, Junior

Born 9 Jul 1803, Charles Hagler is the son of John and Mary Love Hagler. Dated 5 Feb 1825, he purchased several tracts of land (V-177, Union County NC) from Christian Kiker. The deed indicates Charles was then living in Cabarrus County. The next year, on 19 Dec 1826, Charles sold the same land to Charles Kiker. Charles Hagler married first a person named “Elizabeth” ca. 1838. From other family histories, it is believed that her maiden name is Roundtree. The 1850 Union County census lists the family as: Charles Hagler 46 Blackmith, Elizabeth 45, James 21, Paul 19, Charles 16, Mary M 15, Margaret 13, Julius M 9, John 7, John J. 4, Josephine 4. Dated 15 Jan 1852, Charles deeded 70 acres of the lands possibly being apart of the other lands on Crooked Creek to his son James.

Charles Hagler’s wife Elizabeth died 1 Aug 1862 and is buried at Zion UMC in Union County. The children of Charles and Elizabeth Roundtree Hagler are:

James M. Hagler

The oldest son, James was named for his Uncle James Merriman Hagler. He appears first in the 1850 Union County census as 21 years of age and living with his father and mother. Dated 15 Jan 1852, Charles Hagler of Union County sold to “James Hagler his son” 70 acres (4-74, Union County NC) on Crooked Creek adjoining the old county line. A few years later, James M. Hagler married first 5 Feb 1857 Louiza Jane Helms in Union County NC. Born 12 Jan 1841, she is the daughter of Tilman and Sarah Helms. James and Louiza appear in the 1860 Union County Census beside Brother Paul Hagler Jr. and near their Uncle Paul Hagler. The family is enumerated as: James M. Hagler 30, Louiza 19. Charles L. 1, Loranzy 1/12, and living with them is 8 year-old William Cuthbertson. James M. Hagler is by occupation a farmer and his wife Louiza is a “Spinster” or maker of the thread and cloth.

Though 40 years of age and possibly of age to be involved in the Civil War, I have yet to find a combined service record for James M. Hagler. The 1870 Union County census enumerates the James M. Hagler family as James M. 59, Louiza 29, Charley L. 11, Lorenzo 10, Julius A. 8, John E., 6, Amanda, 4, Sarah 2, Amos 10/12.
