Hi Diane, Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures either nor any stories.My mother was raised by her grandmother, Josephine Jones (Vogt).Josephine's parents were Catherine Herbertz & Daniel Vogt.However, she never spoke of her ancestors.I did receive the civil war pension file for Daniel Vogt which gave me the info to finally take the family back a few generations.Yes, I have found that most of the women use Minnie as a nickname of Wilhelmine or Wilhelmina.
Here are some addresses I found in the Detroit Directory CDs that I have.Of course, they didn't spell out the first name!!So it could be William or Wilhelm. 1879; Hardt, Wm - Cigarmkr, Penninsular Cigar Co.; H 456 Clinton Ave. page 388 1882; Hart, Wm - Cigarmkr, 319 Orleans; h same page 483 1884; Hardt, Wm - Cigar Mnfr, 274 Chene; h samepage 599 1885; Hardt, Wm - Cigarmkr, 274 Chene; h samepage 555 1886; Hardt, Wm - Cigarmkr, 274 Chene; h samepage 639 1887; Hardt, Wm - Cigar Mnfr, 274 Chene; h same page 683 1893; Hardt, Wm - Cigar Mnfr, 353 Maple; h same page 479 1894; same as 1893; page 626 1895; Hardt, Wm - Cigar Mnfr, 278 Russell; h same page 648 Hope this helps in the search!!
