Biography of Philip H. Wager
Madison County, NY Biographies





Wager, Philip H., p. o. Chittenango, was born on the homestead farm where he now resides, September 9, 1838. Alexander S. Wager, his father, of Holland-Dutch ancestry, came here among the pioneer settlers from Columbia county when a young man. The first American ancestor was Peter Wager. a wine merchant of Philadelphia. Philip H. Wager is largely engaged in farming, having 200 acres of arable land about two miles from Chittenango. In politics he is not a partisan, but he always promoted the best public interests of the community. Nominally a staunch Republican, he represented the town of Sullivan on the board of supervisors in 1893 and 1894, commanding the respect of his political opponents and the strong fealty of his constituents. October 7, 1863, he married Emily M. Annas of Cazenovia, daughter of Alanson Annals, a pioneer farmer of that town; they have had three daughters: Susie A., Maria A., and Louise A., all of whom have become successful teachers of youth.
