My great grandmother, K/Catharine/a Vogel stated in the 1900 US census that she was born Aug. 11, 1832 and emigrated to the USA in 1838. (6 years old) She stated that she imigrated from the Voglerlehen (Vogel Farm) in Bischofswiesen, Bavaria. The Catholic Church Archives have no record of her being born there. I do not monitor this forum on a regular basis. If you are a Vogel from that area or have any suggestions on how to gain information about her , please reply directly to I would be happy to be of service to anyone anyway that I can. I have the most and best information on the Rademacher/Rodmakers in the USA. Thank you, and remember, "Many fine quilts are made from small bits of cloth".
