I am researching Samuel Friedrich Voigt, bn. in Germany, sailed for U.S. in 1848, died at sea. Married Caroline Augusta Ackerman, bn. Nov. 1, 1801 in Germany, died Nov. 15, 1880 in Caldwell Co., Texas. Oldest son August remained in Germany till 1860 and married Caroline Wilhelmine Raetzer on Sept. 29, 1842. Samuel and Caroline's son Adolph, bn. Apr. 15, 1840 arrived in Texas with Caroline. Adolf's child, Henry, was bn. June 6, 1860, married Rosa and had fifteen children, two of which changed name to Voight. I have more info, but would like to know about ancestors prior to Samuel Friedrich Voigt in Germany. The family textile mill was in Limbach (now Limbach-Oberfrohna), Germany.
