Notes for Charles B DAGGART:

As of December 2016, I've never found this marriage personally but have decided to accept that it's correct as it seems most likely to have taken place:
__________

Charles Daggart's first wife died in Two Rivers, leaving two children, Thomas and Mary, and he subsequently returned to New York State where he married Naomi Knibbs, who became the mother of five children, viz.: Amanda E., Andrew, Martha F. , Evaline Ann, and one that died in infancy. Mr. Daggart, who followed merchandising, served as postmaster at Two Rivers, and also for one year as member of the Assembly.
__________

From the Herald Times Reporter Newspaper Archives, March 05, 1974:
The Two Rivers Post Office was established in late sum-mer of ???? and Henry A. Tefft became the first commissioned postmaster, who carried the mail in his coat pocket. Receipts for the year were under as compared with in 1973 as the Post Office maintained its first class rating since 1923, dropping to second class in 1933 when Kahlenberg-Klaus Laboratory moved to Florida with its annual heavy mailing. Before Tefft's time Andrew Vieau and ???? (Deacon) Smith, founder of the community's first in-dustry, making tubs and pails, by some authority, handled whatever mail coming to this point. "Deacon" Smith became postmaster in 1849 to 1851 when Joseph N. Fischer took over the post. Through the years the Post Office changed numerous times with its respective postmasters. In December of 1853, Charles B. Daggart took over the postmastership in a spot on 15th Street, near the Union House, and remained the office until 1861.

Notes:
There was for many years a great deal of confusion surrounding this, the third child of John and Hannah. The Parish Register of Baptisms at Deddington had the child listed as Nehemiah (a boy's name) so for many years we assumed it to be correct. The name was unreadable in the very first passenger list I saw for this family sailing to the US, and then, the first census return for the family in the US in 1850, had the child named, as it happened correctly, Naomi.

Having now seen a good scan of the passenger list, the child was listed as Maria Knibbs, so quite clearly a girl but just the wrong name. The 1850 census, where she is named as Naomi is correct.

The following information relates to Martha's husband, Henry, as well as to the life Martha and he led together:
Henry VAN SEGGERN was born October 9, 1849, in Oldenburg, Germany, son of Henry F. and Meta (Schmidt) Van Seggern, who had four children, as follows: H. D. , Dedrick (who died when three 3'ears old), and two that died in infancy. The father was a sailor and carpenter, and was employed as such for fifteen years, after which he worked for a time in the shipyards. In 1859 the family came to America, sailing from Bremen, and landing, after a voyage of thirteen days, in New York, where they sojourned three days, and then continued their journey west. They traveled to Milwaukee, Wis., and thence by boat to Manitowoc, where they hired an ox-team to take them to their destination in New Denmark township. Brown county; but the team collapsed near where Mr. Fagan now lives, and they were obliged to finish the journey as best they could. In New Denmark township the father purchased a tract of 160 acres, only three acres of which were cleared, and the family took up their residence in a log hut, which stood on the place, continuing to live in same eight years, when it was replaced by a more modern dwelling. About two years after their arrival Mr. Van Seggern disposed of eighty acres of his land. The father spent the remainder of his life clearing and improving the land he had bought; later purchased some more land, and at the time of his death was the owner of a fine farm of 160 acres, now the home of our subject. He passed away at the age of seventy-eight, fifteen years after the death of his wife. Our subject, being the only son, had to commence work very early in life, helping his father in the labor of clearing and cultivating the pioneer farm, remaining at home except for three winters when he worked in the woods. In his youth the country around his home was sparsely settled and totally unimproved, and he has experienced all the inconveniences incident to backwoods life in those early days. Although no road had yet been cut through to Green Bay, he would walk there and back, carrying butter and eggs to market, and bringing home provisions. On account of the meager educational facilities of that time, he received only eleven months' schooling; but he has made the best of such opportunities as he had, and has acquired a practical education by his own efforts. He assisted his parents faithfully in the laborious task of converting the forest into a fertile, productive farm, and he is now enjoying the fruits of those early days of hardship and incessant toil. On May 13, 1879, he was united in marriage with Miss Martha F. Daggart, a native of Two Rivers, Wis., daughter of Charles B. and Naomi (Knibbs) Daggart, who were of Scotch and English descent, respectively. Mr. Daggart's first wife died in Two Rivers, leaving two children, Thomas and Mary, and he subsequently returned to New York State where he married Naomi Knibbs, who became the mother of five children, viz.: Amanda E., Andrew, Martha F. , Evaline Ann, and one that died in infancy. Mr. Daggart, who followed merchandising, served as postmaster at Two Rivers, and also for one year as member of the Assembly. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Van Seggern took up their residence on the old homestead, which Mr. Van Seggern inherited, and have ever since remained here, prosperously engaged in general farming. To their union have been born eight children, their names and dates of birth being as follows: Matie N., May 22, 1880; Amanda E. , December 23, 1881 ; Charles H., November 3, 1883 ; Fred J., May 13, 1885 ; Walter M., March 6, 1888; Irma C, July 10, 1889; Cora A. A., February i, 1892 ; Edna H., November 23, 1894. In religious faith Mr. and Mrs. Van Seggern are members of the Lutheran Church, in which he serves as trustee and secretary. In his political preferences he is a Republican, taking considerable interest in the workings of his party, and his fellow citizens have honored him with election to various local positions of trust ; he served faithfully as supervisor three years, from 1880 to 1883; also school director, and was recently elected to the important position of chairman of his township. For the last six years he has been treasurer of the Farmers' Insurance Company. As a prominent, prosperous farmer, a public-spirited, representative citizen, and a progressive, self-made man, Mr. Van Seggern occupies an enviable position among his fellow citizens in New Denmark township.

__________

From the History of Brown County, Past and Present by the Hon. John H M Wigman:
Immediately after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Van Seggern settled on his father's farm and here have been born their eleven children: Matie N. whose birth occurred on May 22, 1880; Amanda E., who was born on 23d December , 1881; Charles H. who was born on November 3, 1883 and was accidentally killed while unhitching a team of horses on 14 September, 1898; Fred J., whose natal day was May 13, 1885;Walter M., whose birth occurred on March 6, 1888; Irma C., who was born on the 10th July, 1889; Cora A., whose natal day was February 1, 1892; Edna, who was born on the 23rd November, 1894; Myrtle, born on April 6, 1896; Gladys, born September 30, 1898; and Ruby, whose birthday was on the 9th July, 1901.
Mr. Van Seggern has for several years been trustee and secretary of the Lutheran church in which his wife also holds membership. He takes an active interest in local politics, giving his support to the republican party, and has several times been called to public office. He was town supervisor for three years, having entered upon his duties in this connection in 1880. and he also serves as school director and has held that office for a number of years, while at one time he was chairman of the township. He has served as county supervisor from 1894 to 1899 and was appointed circuit jury commissioner by Judge Hastings on on September 27, 1902, and has continually filled that office ever since. Mr. Van Seggern has not continued his attention to farming alone,but has extended it to other lines of business and formerly was actively connected to the Farmers' Insurance Company, of which he was the treasurer, looking after his farm at the same time. He enjoys a wide and favorable acquaintance throughout the county, where his enterprising methods, upright principles and honorable business transactions have enabled him to establish an enviable reputation in both public and private life.
