I am just getting started with Genealogy. S.R. Voss is my GGGrandDad and I have some additional information.

According my father and cemeteries: S.R. Voss and D.J. Voss had two children (he did not know of the two you had listed Willie Sylvester Voss, and Nannie Voss). The two children of S.R. Voss were Asa E Voss born Feb 6, 1873, died Dec 21, and Gay Voss. Asa E. Voss was married to INA who was born Aug 13, 1877 and died Nov 28, 1940. They had four children: Authur, Earl, Ruth, and Inez. Authur Clark Voss born March 25, 1913 died Dec 21, 1940 married Marguerite Cope born July 7, 1915 died Nov 9, 1958. They had four children: Laurie Lucie (died about birth and buried at her mothers feet), Roger Voss, Michael Voss, and Janice Voss. Roger Voss had one son also named Roger Voss. Michael Voss had two sons, Michael Voss and Arthur Clark Voss. Janice had three daughters, Naressa, Shandra, and Suesan. Asa E. Voss, wife Ida, Arthur Clark Voss, wife Marguerite Cope Voss are all buried in Quitman, MS. I have photos of gravestones. I hope that helps and I am sure I will have many questions. Please free to contact me.

p.s. I believe that this is the S.R. Voss who fought with the Gainesville Volunteers "Company G, 3d Regiment Mississippi Infantry of Hancock County, Mississippi, CSA. I am still looking into this.
