I have a "stray" VOLZ whom I've been unable to trace so far - supposedly a farmer in Nebraska. Has anyone heard of Matt (Mathias?) VOLZ? He was a brother of my great-grandfather, John VOLZ. My family was in SE Indiana (near Lawrenceburg, in Dearborn County?) and Cincinnati, OHIO. My great-grandfather was born in 1853, and married a Margaret BRAUER in 1879. The parents were probably from Germany, although one census, around WWI, said Indiana.
