Here is some info. on Altevogts taken from the Germans to America series of books:Rudolph Altevogt, born about 1839 and Heinrich Altevogt, born about 1841 arrived on the Ship "Atlantic" disembarking from port in Bremen and Southhampton to NY, arriving 17 July 1861. ALTEFOGT: Wilhelm born about 1828, Wilhelmine b. abt 1825, Friedericka b. abt. 1850, Catharina b. abt. 1797, and Dina b. abt. 1858 disembarked from Bremen on the Ship "Anna". They arrived in Baltimore on 4 Nov. 1861.ALTENVOGT: Heinrich b. 1811, Maria b. 1810, Elisabeth b. 1842, Fredericke b. 1845, Catharine b. 1847, Gesine b. 1849, Ludewig b. 1850. All disembarked from Bremen on the ship "Ocean" and arrived in Baltimore on 16 May 1860. ALTRVOGT: Fr. Wilhelm b. abt. 1841 disembarked from Bremen on the ship "Tuisko" and arrived in NY on 8 Nov 1867. ALTENVOGT: Adelheide disembarked from Bremen on the ship "Dorette" and arrived in NY on 14 Nov. 1864.On another note: Found in St. Louis Probate records: Will Books G and H. 1861-1869 a will for a Fridrig Stolte (originally of Muenster, Germany). The will listed as his nephews: William Altevogt (of IL) and Frederick Altevogt(of St. Louis)and a niece, Wilhelmine. It is assumed that all of the above individuals settled in or near St. Louis and Southern Illinois. I do not know how all of the above individuals connect. It is deduced that the immigrant Wihelm Altevogt is one and the same as the William ALtevogt of Staunton, IL. The above named Rudolph Altevogt is certainly the same who enlisted in the 8th IL infantry during the Civil War.
