Various spellings of first name and surname:Johnsey, Johnzey, Josh, Joshua, Josiah, Johusea, Johuzea, Johuza, Johnza, Johnsea, Wages, Weges, Wagers, and Waygers. 

"Martha Jane Wages, daughter of James Jackson Wages had a family bible that stated her grandparents where Johusea Wages and Martha Vallandingham.

Martha's two uncles were Ferdinand and William."

"The family bible lists James Jackson's father as Johusea which is a variation of Joshua." - Victor Roman. 

"If it is Johusea then it is a variant or corruption of Joshua or Josiah and was pronounced Joe-who-say-ah."

" If it is Johnsea then it probably is a variation on Chauncey and was pronounced as John-see." - Victor Roman. 

"Martha was illiterate. I venture that Johnsea was her version Of "Johnsey", a popular familiar form of John at the time used with children." - descendant Albert Wages. 

"I am fully convinced that Johusea and Johnsea are the same person. If the record was copied from a handwritten record it is very easy to confuse a "u" with a "n".

The bible record was written by Martha Jane Wages Marble so I'm sure that she knew her grandfathers name."

"It's hard to see how someone could confuse Buckingham with Vallandingham"  - Victor Roman of Tallahassee, Florida

"Obviously more research is required." 

Possible eleven children of Johusea Johnsea, or Joshua Wages and Martha settled in counties in close proximity to Muskingum County, Ohio.

 

The counties of Guernsey, Belmont, Knox, and Franklin.

1814, September 12, 1814; Battle of Baltimore The British appeared near success in the late summer of 1814. American resistance to the diversionary attack in Chesapeake Bay was so weak that the British, after winning the Battle of Bladensburg (August 24), marched into Washington, D.C., and burned most of the public buildings. President Madison had to flee into the countryside. The British then turned to attack Baltimore but met stiffer resistance and were forced to retire after the American defense of FORTMCHENRY, which inspired Francis Scott KEY to write the words of the "Star-Spangled Banner."  The War of 1812 was fought between the United States and Great Britain from June 1812 to the spring of 1815, although the peace treaty ending the war was signed in Europe in December 1814.
