Good day fellow Voelker’s,
My name is Rodney Allen Voelker.I have been conducting Genealogy research on my family
sir name VOELKER/VöLKER.I have found relatives in Germany (Huckelheim, Oberwestern
area) and found out that my Grand Father, Georg VOELKER was one of several children that
migrated to the USA from Geiselback, Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany and other parts of the
world in the late 1800's.My Grand Father Georg VOELKER/VöLKER (Found ö spelling on
church record in Cincinnati) settled in Cincinnati, OH.My father Albert George VOELKER
had one sister Freda Amalia VOELKER (married a GRUBER) that lived in Cincinnati, and I
have been able to trace this line.
My Great Grand Father was Stefan (Steven) VOELKER b. January 28, 1822 Huckelheim,
Oberwestern, Germany, d. October 21, 1890.He married Franziska BUTTNER, b. January 12,
1824, d. March 11, 1901
Where I’m stuck is, researching all of the other brothers and sisters of Stefan.
Pauline VOELKER/VöLKER b. January 12, 1854;
Konstantin VOELKER/VöLKER b. January 13, 1857;
Josef VOELKER/VöLKER b. October 28, 1859,d. March7, 1886; married Veronika
SCHNEIDER March7, 1886, Huckelheim, Oberwestern, Germany
Theresia VOELKERVöLKER b. September 25, 1867.
Stefan’s father was Michael VöLKER, b. December 12, 1791, d. May 21, 1852,married
(January 23, 1812 Huckelheim, Oberwestern, Germany) to Margarete GUINHEIM, b. May 15,
1792, d. February 21, 1824.
