Hello Ms. Bartlett, et al....I was waiting to post until I had read all of the posts on the George Voss of TX.Glad you asked if any of these folks have info on the Voss FAmilybefore William....because I do.I am descended from Wiliam's brother John....who was with him in Henryville, TN (Lawrence County)The James Voss book that is written, that Terry Voss refers to is also decided from John.
James has/had done extensive reserach on the Voss's and actually ended up disentangling the confusion about who was begat by whom.He is the one who determined that William and John were brothers.He is also the one who determined the father of both of them.But, I don't have access to my database here in WI, but will have when I return to AR in late October, early November.
My branch of the family....John's son Robert James....married CHarlotte Mitchell in Chattanooga TN (before it was Chattanooga....known as Ross's Landing after the Chief of the Eastern CHerokee John Ross)and had my gggrandfather William James Voss who married Susanna Pennignton, and then moved to AR with his family.His son (my ggrandfather) Franklin Pierce Voss married Mary Adeline Ellis, and lived in Searcy Cty, Leslie, AR, until her untimely death...when he moved to Hector, AR with his new wife and family.
I would very much like to orchestrate a family reunion (we have one every year on Labor Day Weekend...in Hector, AR) that would have the members of Williams family (your line) and the members of Johns family (my line).
If any one else from these lines is interested in orchestrating that...please let me know.I have talked to Terry about doing that in the past...but I know that your reunion like mine is in need of new blood...younger blood...to carry on the torch.
