I am excited to find all of you. I am a Voges before marriage and have done little searching outside of Vigo County, Indiana. My great-grandfather was Julius B. Voges, Sr. born February 22, 1857 in Hannover, Germany. He went to Vigo County from Germany at the age of 14 and became a blacksmith. I believe his father to be Johann A. Berndardt Voges from Breman, Germany, born abt February 11, 1821, who also went to Vigo. I am still trying to straighten out the family and move further back. Would love any connections and just glad to see someone with the same name.

There are still a Voges family living in the Prairieton, Vigo County area. My family, Hammonds, lived there for awhile, and I know that some of the Voges' were blacksmiths, but your names don't ring a bell. The ones I know are Henry, and Earl.

I grew up in Vigo. We never knew Earl and his father Henry and on back. I believe they are related to my Voges family however. That is one of the things I need to work on. My great-grandfather,Julius had a blacksmith shop in Terre Haute and his brother Henry had one in Prairieton. I believe that Henry had a son Henry who had a son Earl. Would you mind e-mailing me at Susie

This is your father. I can help answer questions that you have regarding the Voges family. Your grandfather Glen had 2 brothers, Dean and Hugh, and I believe 5 or 6 sisters, Norma, Deloris, Juanita, Bertha, Virginia. My grandmother, died in the 90s. My grandfather died in 1972. Glen and Virginia still live in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Hugh lives in Angola, and Bertha lives in Garrett Indiana. Juanita lives in Palmetto Florida and Indiana and Norma lives in Kissimmee Florida. Glen has two other children by another wife, Judy. Their names are Ryan and Renee and they both have children. Dean passed away several years ago as the oldest child. My grandparents raised all of these children on a large farm near Corona and Ashley Indiana. We've moved to Cape Coral now, so email me for our new address and feel free to call anytime.
