Today I received a packet of information about my Great Grandfather William Voss and his wife Marie (Mary) Flagel. I had been contacted to see if I was still interested in a Voss-Flagel connection. Of course, I was. It has only been in the past 3 years that I had found the name of my Great-Grandfather Voss, I knew his wife’s name, but not his first name. Now I have William’s parents, and Marie’s father, so may be someday I will find another generation.
The information that was shared confirmed the story of my Grandfather and his brother coming over to the United States with his mother and a stepfather, which is all I knew.
I had come to the conclusion that William had died about 1868, this has been confirmed, and it also includes the birth, baptism and marriage records for William and the children.
What I received today, I am savoring as I look over the information, that takes me back another generation for my father’s side of the tree. I do ‘love’ the fact that they don’t have just a first and middle name, but about 5 names which adds to the confusion.
I am so grateful to Art for sharing this information, and will be working on updating my information. Of course I am sharing the descendents of Charles Martin Voss with him.
You just never know when a new piece of information will show up.
