Yes. There are entries - 8 pages of Wagners with cross-references. They
also are called "Vagner". Entries including Phillip (born 3/24/1827;
Hatzfeld to Jacob and Theresia Gerdes Wagner) and Anna Maria(aka Mariana)
Firtling (born 1/17/1827, Heufield, to Michael and Elisabeth Blocher Wagner-
also listed in the book ) They were married 2/28/1859 and both had been
previously married.) Also the Firtlings and the extended families are
included. This book would be a good buy for you.
(Mathias: born 5/8/1861 in Tschetereg. Father: Phillip W.Wagner. Spelling
of mother in the book is Anna Maria Firtling. Married 2/25/1889 in Deutsch
Elemer to Maria Jung, born 9/13/1868 in Deutsch Elemer. Notation that 10
children were born to them between 1889-1904 in Deutsch Elemer. None of the
other children are named.)
Let me know if I can be of any more help in the meantime.

maybe someone, who has the Tschestereg book already, can do me a favour.
My ancestor Mathias Wagner was born in Cestereg or Tschestereg in about
1863 and died in Deutsch-Elemer 1935.
Father: Philipp Wagner, Mother: Maria Firtlin, Marriage: 25.02.1889 in
Mathias was married to Maria Jung, born in Deutsch Elemer 1889 and they had
10 children all born in Deutsch-Elemer.
I own the Deutsch-Elemer family book so this is where my information is
My questions: are there any entries on Mathias Wagner or Philipp Wagner or
I cant find Philipp Wagner, the father of Mathias nor brothers nor sisters
of Mathias or Philipp in Deutsch Elemer.
It is likely that they are listed in Tschestereg.
This information would be elemental for my research and I really appreciate
If the Tschestereg book turns out to be a source, I will buy it.
Thank you for any help in advance.
Best, R. Wagner
