In 1805 he accepted a call to Schoharie, N.Y.; in 1816 was pastor of various churches in Columbia County; for several years had charge of the academy at Clermont, and died there, November 1, 1865. Dr. Wackerhagen was a diligent student of ancient and modern languages. For twelve years he presided over the New York Ministerium, and was an original trustee of Hartwick Seminary. Except a sermon on the Lutheran Pulpit, the only work he published was a German volume, Faith and Morals (Philadelphia, 1804). See Fifty Years in the Lutheran Ministry (1878), page 63.
