Elizabeth Hagerman 1779 - Died before 1780 m. John Force
Hannah Hagerman m. John Force
1746 - Abigail Thorne is born
1773 - Son Francis Hagerman is Born
There is a will for Francis Hagerman in Northampton County, Will Book 7, page 370 for a Francis Hagerman who died in 1860. Is this the same Francis? I cannot be sure. The heirs are listed as:
That my daughter Sarah who married Francis C. Shres is deceased having sons Richard Steres and Clarkson Steres
Children: WIlliam, John, Mary Schoch wife of Henry Schock Hannah Schmoch and Rebecca Klinefelder wife of Charles Kleinfelfer
William and John are listed as Executors, but when the will goes to probate only John is listed as the exectutor.
1776 - Son Joshua Hagerman is Born
Joshua Hagerman married Susanna Dills. They are Dan's 4th great grandparents, you can read more about them here:
1776 - Son Joseph Hagerman is born
If my dates are correct, Joshua and Joseph were twins. Very possible in this family, where twins are prevalent yet today. But I have no further records for Joseph. There are letters of Administration for a Joseph Hagerman in 1823 in Northmapton County. Joseph Labar is the administrator.

According to Francis Will, Elizabeth married John Force and had at least 2 children:
"Susan Force and Benjamin Force children and heirs at law of Elizabeth Force deceased so was the wife of John Force"
There is a marriage record for John Force to Elizabeth Hagaman in 1804.
In 1815, there is a marriage record for John Force to Hannah Lewis. We assume that after Elizabeth's death, John married Elizabeth's sister Hannah, based on this line in Francis will-
Hannah Force wife of John Force. She may have first married a Lewis?

Abt 1796 Daughter Hannah Force is Born
Hannah is mentioned in the will as the wife of John Force. We assume John married Hannah after her sister Elizabeth died. The marriage record I found in 1815 shows that John Force married Hannah Lewis, so perhaps she was a widow as well.
Name: John Force
Marriage Date: 21 Oct 1815
Marriage Place: Sussex, New Jersey, USA
Spouse: Hannah Lewis

Or of course, it's possible this record does not belong to them.
