This is the end of a line. I would love additional info.
Henry Simon born: 5/31/1895 Friedrichshaufen, Wurttemberg, Germany immigration: American Civil War Marriage: 7/18/1869 Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois Census: 8/17/1870-Nauvoo, HC, IL Census: 6/5/1880-Montebello, HC, IL death: 8/28/1895 Hamilton, HC, IL by suicide. married: Mrs. Eva Voght children: George Voght-Simon, Lewis Voght-Simon, Mary Simon Crosby, William Simon, Henry Simon Jr.
family claims Henry and unnamed brother arrived at Louisiana and immediately joined (or were forced to join) the Confederate Army. The brothers never saw one another again.
What I'm hoping for: brother's name? ship manifest? regiment in the army? any additional information on how Henry got from Friedrichshaufen, Wurttemberg, Germany to Hancock County, Illinois.
