Sixth Generation: Harold Wayne Tagg < Emma Maria Williams < Hannah Maria Warner < William Warner < William Warner < William Warner

My 2nd cousin twice removed

Harold Wayne Tagg was the son of Emma Maria Williams and David Tagg. He was born in Chicago on April 1, 1895. It is likely that his middle name was actually “Wain,” but it is “Wayne” that appears more frequently in the records.*

He married Nancy Irwin Morrison in Astoria, Oregon on April 4, 1918. They had three children:

  1. Robert James Tagg
  2. Donald Leslie Tagg
  3. David William Tagg

Harold died in Clatsop, Oregon on November 10, 1985. He was buried at the Clatsop Plains Pioneer Cemetery.


* Harold’s paternal grandmother was Ann Wain (1834–1916), so it’s likely that he was given the middle name “Wain” in her family’s honour. I have used “Wayne” here because that is what appears on his marriage record, his World War II draft card, and the stone on his grave. The middle name “Wain” appears in the will of his grandfather, James Tagg (1829–1916), and it is spelled “Waine” on his World War I military record.
