Johann Theobald Wagner, a farmer from Oberflockenbach in the Heidelberg region of the Kurpfalz, arrived in Fridericia, Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) on 15 May 1760. He married on 29 June 1760 to Maria Margaretha Meyer.

The Wagner family is last recorded in the Danish colonies on 26 April 1763.

The parish register of the Reformed Church of Saints Peter & Paul in Danzig records that Johann Theobald Wagner from the Pfalz & Christina Tiefenthaler from the Pfalz, widow of [Andreas] Tiefenthaler, were married on 19 May 1765 in Danzig. [See Tiefenthaler Family.]

Theobold Wagner, a farmer, his wife Christina [widow Tiefenthaler], [step-]children (Anna Elisabeth [Tiefenthaler], age 18; Friedrich [Riebler], age 17; Anna Margaretha [Tiefenthaler], age 4) are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 9. They had settled there on 1 July 1766.

The 1767 census records that Theobold Wagner came from the German area of the Kurpfalz.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Wagner family among the Volga German colonies.
