Hi my name is Carole Norwood and my Great Great Grandfather was George Friedrich Hermann Voss born in Hanover Germany 1845. The story that has been handed down was that he fought for the French in the Prussian war as he did not align politically with the Prussian Government, the end result being that he could not return to Germany. He lived in Alsace-Lorraine for a while and then came to Canada where his three children were born.
Johan Friedrich Voss (Possibly aka Karl Hermann Voss) b1876 Montreal d 1954 California
George Heinrich Voss (my Great GrandFather) b 1878 Montreal d 1958 California Married 1910 to Bent Young Boggs
Emma Eleonore Voss b 1880 Montreal d 1943 California
I would love find some relatives and would like to be able to trace directly back to Germany and any possible relatives there.
