It is a great pleasure to meet you and to learn more about our family! My grandfather, William C. Ehlert, Jr was Lillian Voight's nephew. His sister, Florence Lillian Ehlert Wallenfang, was named for Lillian.

My grandfather and great-aunt Florence grew up with Lenore and Franklin and I have photos of the four of them as children. I attached a photo of William Ehlert (the larger boy), Franklin Voight (sitting next to William), Florence Ehlert (dark haired girl holding the dog) and Lenore Voight.
